## 6TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON MATHEMATICS AND OPTIMIZATION: THEORY AND APPLICATIONS

(ICAPTA 2019)

The goal of ICAPTA 2019 is to bring together Scientists, Engineers, Mathematicians and Practitioners for a variety of related disciplines, to exchange ideas and present original research results in the theory and application of Mathematical Analysis, Optimization and Statistics. It is hoped that most countries will have a delegation to participate in the conference. The conference will include paper presentation, invited talks and discussions.

## ICAPTA 2019 PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP

The 2 Day Pre-conference workshop is meant to expose young researchers and mature researchers, who are interested in multi-disciplinary research in Mathematical Analysis and Optimization Theory. The workshop which would be handled by experts, both local and international, will give the necessary rudiments for a good life time research in Mathematical Analysis with ultimate applications in Optimization theory, methods and applications.**Workshop 1: An Overview of Convexity and Optimization methods**
