Exploring Nonlinear Optimization with JuliaSmoothOptimizers at JuliaCon Local Eindhoven 2023

We are excited to share that one of the core members of the JuliaSmoothOptimizers organization, Abel Siqueira, recently delivered a compelling talk at the JuliaCon Local Eindhoven 2023 conference in the Netherlands. The conference, co-located with PyData Eindhoven 2023, provided an excellent platform for discussions and presentations on the latest developments in Julia and related technologies. As published in a previous post, Julia Smooth Optimizers was a community partner of the event.

Abel Siqueira's talk, titled Nonlinear Optimization with the Julia Smooth Optimizers Packages, delved into the rich ecosystem built by the JSO since its inception in 2015. With over 50 registered packages covering a wide range of nonlinear optimization and linear algebra topics, JSO has been a driving force in providing researchers with the necessary tools to seamlessly transition from prototyping to publication-ready code.

With an extensive package ecosystem and the introduction of JSOSuite, the organization continues to play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between research and practical, user-friendly solutions. As we look forward to the future, events like JuliaCon Local Eindhoven contribute significantly to the collaborative and innovative spirit of the Julia community.

Abstract: The talk highlighted JSO's primary objective: to empower researchers by offering high-level, well-maintained optimization packages. The organization is committed to facilitating a smooth journey from the conceptualization of ideas to the development of user-friendly optimization packages. A significant stride in this direction is the introduction of JSOSuite, a comprehensive package aiming to be a one-stop solution for nonlinear optimization in Julia.
