12th International Conference on Parametric Optimization and Related Topics (paraoptXII)

Augsburg, Germany, September 13 - 17, 2021

Parametric Optimization

and Related Topics XII

Augsburg, Germany



Important Note:

Due to the situation caused by the Covid-19 outbreak (Corona), we have decided to postpone the conference which was originally scheduled for September 2020.


The new conference dates are: September 13-17, 2021.


Parametric optimization is a part of mathematical programming and has emerged as an exciting research area in theory, numerics and applications. It investigates the properties of solutions to optimization problems under data perturbations or uncertainty. Many relations to other disciplines of operations research, like stochastic programming, complementarity problems, mixed-integer problems, model-building, numerical methods, multi-objective optimization and optimal control, originate from these properties.


paraoptXII welcomes papers as well as proposals for special sessions on any area in parametric optimization or related topics. We hope that the conference will continue to help link researchers and practitioners from different areas of mathematical programming from around the world.


For any questions about the conference you may contact  Mirjam Dür.

The international conference series “Parametric Optimization and Related Topics” was founded in 1985 and, since then, took place in different places: the latter eight conferences were held in Enschede (1995), Tokyo (1997), Dubrovnik (1999), Puebla (2002), Cairo (2005), Cienfuegos (2007), Karlsruhe (2010), and Prague (2017).
