ICSP XV - Trondheim, July 29 - August 2, 2019

The Organizers of the XV International Conference on Stochastic Programming (ICSP2019) are honoured to host the tri-annual Conference at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. The ICSP is the premier event of the Stochastic Programming Society (SPS), a technical session of the Mathematical Optimization Society that brings together researchers who work on decisions under uncertainty, practitioners in the industrial and institutional sectors share recent theoretical and applied results. The conference aims to present the state-of-the-art in this field as well as neighbouring scientific areas.

July 29 - August 2: The ICSP conference

The conference includes parallel sections, plenary talks from leading researchers in stochastic optimization and a set of mini symposia, featuring a semi-plenary followed by a stream of recent contributions on selected state-of-the-art topics.  There will be an opening reception on the evening of the 28th. See full list of accepted mini-symposia here: The call for contributed papers is now open:

July 27 and 28: Pre-conference tutorials

A two-day introductory series of Tutorials precedes the main conference to provide introduction to some of the central research areas in Stochastic Programming.

Memorial session

A memorial session was organized at the ICSP conference in memory of our recently passed colleagues, Marida Bertocchi, Maarten van der Vlerk, and Shabbir Ahmed. Each memorial, for Marida, Maarten, and Shabbir consisted of some prepared talks, including a presentation about their contributions to our field, and an open part in which attendees have the opportunity to make remarks or share their memories.
