Professor Yaroslav Sergeyev is elected EUROPT Fellow for 2016

Continuous Optimization Branch (http://europt.iam.metu.edu.tr/) of the European Society of Operations Research (https://www.euro-online.org/web/pages/1/home) has chosen UNN Professor Yaroslav Sergeyev to be the EUROPT Fellow for 2016. Dr. Yaroslav Sergeyev is Professor of the Department of Software and Supercomputing Technologies at the UNN Institute of Information Technologies, Mathematics and Mechanics.  The award was presented for his outstanding work and achievements in the field of continuous optimization. The decision was announced at the 14th EUROPT Workshop on Advances in Continuous Optimization held in Warsaw, Poland, on July 1-2, 2016, where Prof. Sergeyev was invited to deliver a keynote address on the topic "Lipschitz Global optimization". 

At Lobachevsky University, Prof. Ya.D. Sergeyev is in charge of the project of the Russian Science Foundation 15-11-30022 "Global optimization, supercomputing and applications" (2015-2017). The aim of the project is to develop and study theoretically and experimentally an integrated complex of new models and effective methods for solving different types of problems of global optimization. The study involves the implementation of such methods on high-performance computing systems, including systems with transpetaflop performance.
