Workshop Description Semidefinite Programming, interior point methods and global optimization approaches are active areas of research during the last decade. In particular, techniques from these areas have been applied to develop new algorithms for solving combinatorial optimization problems. More generally, techniques from continuous optimization can be effectively used in the development of efficient algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems. The main focus of this workshop is to bring together some of the best researchers working on the algorithmic and practical applications on these areas with emphasis on the following topics: A proceedings published by AMS of refereed invited papers is planned. In addition, we will have a special issue of J. of Comb. Opt. for selected papers.
