Petrozavodsk hosts the international mathematical conference MOTOR 2022. Over a hundred reputable scholars from around Russia have gathered in Karelia to discuss modern challenges and problems of optimization and operations research. Foreign colleagues join them online.
The international conference Mathematical optimization theory and operations research (MOTOR-2022) takes place on July 2Ц6, 2022. It is meant to gather together the wide scientific community dealing with mathematical programing and global optimization, discrete optimization, complexity and combinatorial algorithms theory, mathematical games and their applications in topical practical problems of operational research, mathematical economics, and data analysis.

MOTOR is an international conference integrating well-known Russian and international conferences that have long been organized in the Urals, in Siberia, and in the Far East. This year, the event takes place for the fourth time and for the first time in Northwest Russia.

The participants discuss up-to-date divisions of mathematics: questions of the mathematical optimization theory, problems in decision-making and artificial intelligence, game theory, mathematical economics, and multilevel programing, optimization in machine learning and data analysis, and many others.

Ц Mathematical optimization is always on the agenda. It has applications in the industrial sphere, in the IT sphere, in all sorts of computing. It is a way to solve a great many applied problems. Large conferences like this one is where scientists present fresh solutions, novel ideas and methods, so hosting them and participating is extremely interesting and useful, Ц says Natalia Nikitina, member of MOTOR 2022 Organizing Committee, Senior Research at IAMR KarRC RAS.

The conference participants arrive in Karelia from different federal districts. Foreign colleagues join online. Invited speakers are Georges Zaccour (Canada), Vladimir Marianov (Chile), Yaroslav Sergeyev (Italy), Rentsen Enkhbat (Mongolia), Alexander Nesterov (HSE Campus in St. Petersburg / St.Petersburg School of Economics and Management), Sergey Sevastyanov (Sobolev Institute of Mathematics, Siberian Branch RAS) and others. The Petrozavodsk game theory think tank is among the national leaders. It is headed by Vladimir Mazalov, Director of the Institute of Applied Mathematical Research (IAMR) KarRC RAS. Prof. Mazalov and his colleagues from the institute also present their papers.

The Conference is organized under the auspices of the Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok (Novosibirsk), the Association of European Operational Research Societies, and the Russian Operational Research Society. The host and organizer in 2022 is the Institute of Applied Mathematical Research KarRC RAS. Watch online on KarR— RAS YouTube channel.
