CERN School of Computing, 15-28 September 2019, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
2019 CERN School of Computing (CSC 2019) takes place on September 15-28 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The two-week academic programme consists of more than 50 hours of lectures and hands-on exercises, covering three main themes: physics computing, software engineering and data technologies. However, it’s not all study; the social and sport programme is also a vital

Dr. Robert Csetnek, University of Vienna and STAR-UBB Institute Advanced Fellowship: Approaching nonsmooth optimization problems by splitting methods: theory, algorithms and applications
Abstract: The aim of this lecture is to introduce the main tools and techniques specific to variational analysis which are required to solve nonsmooth optimization and monotone inclusion problems. The main theoretical aspects to be presented are: elements of convex analysis, duality theory for convex optimization problems, regularity and optimality conditions, elements of monotone operator
