This conference volume is a collection of over thirty refereed contributions in the areas of optimization and control. The volume is organized into the following sections: Mathematics of Operations Research and Global Optimization Linear and Combinatorial Programming Tours, Locations and Scheduling Dynamic Programming and Game Theory Control Theory Economic Models. There is a balance between papers dealing with theoretical aspects of the field and those discussing the respective areas of application.
