The purpose of the International Conference on Operations Research and Enterprise Systems (ICORES) is to bring together researchers, engineers, faculty, and practitioners interested in both theoretical advances and practical applications in the field of operations research. Two simultaneous tracks will be held, covering on one side domain independent methodologies and technologies and on the other side practical work developed in specific application areas.

The Power of Duality 

Aharon Ben-Tal 
Technion, Israel Institute of Technology 


Brief Bio 
Aharon Ben-Tal is a Professor of Operations Research and former head of the MINERVA Optimization Center at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, and holder of the Dresner Chair. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Northwestern University in 1973. He has been a Visiting Professor at the University of Michigan, University of Copenhagen, Delft University of Technology, MIT, CWI Amsterdam, Columbia University and NYU. His interests are in Continuous Optimization, particularly nonsmooth and large-scale problems, conic and robust optimization, as well as convex and nonsmooth analysis. Recently the focus of his research is on optimization problems affected by uncertainty. In the last 15 years, he has devoted much effort to engineering applications of optimization methodology and computational schemes. Some of the algorithms developed in the MINERVA Optimization Center are in use by Industry (Medical Imaging, Aerospace). He has published more than 130 papers in professional journals and co-authored three books: Optimality in Nonlinear Programming: A Feasible Direction Approach (Wiley-Interscience, 1981) Lectures on Modern Convex Optimization: Analysis, Algorithms and Engineering Applications (SIAM-MPS series on optimization, 2001) and Robust Optimization (Princeton University press, 2009). Prof. Ben-Tal was Dean of the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion (1989-1992) and (2011-2014). He served as a council member of the Mathematical Programming Society (1994-1997). He was Area Editor (Continuous Optimization) of Math. of Operations Research (1993-1999), member of the Editorial Board of SIAM J. Optimization, J. Convex Analysis, OR Letters, Mathematical Programming, Management Science, Math. Modeling and Numerical Analysis, European J. of Operations Research and Computational Management Science. During 2012-2014, he was the Area Editor (Optimization) for Operations Research. From February 2015, he is Associate Editor for SIAM J. Optimization.

He gave numerous plenary and keynote lectures in international conferences.

In 2007, Professor Ben-Tal was awarded the EURO Gold Medal - the highest distinction of Operations Research within Europe.
In 2009, he was named Fellow of INFORMS.
In 2010, he was awarded the status of Distinguished Scientist by CWI (center for mathematics and computer science, The Netherlands).
In 2011, he received the IBM Faculty Award. 
In 2015, he was named Fellow of SIAM
In 2016 he was awarded the Khachiyan Prize of INFORMS Optimization Society- for lifetime achievements in the area of Optimization.
In 2017, the Operation Research Society of Israel (ORSIS) awarded him the lifetime achievement Prize.

As of April 2017, he has more than 19,500 citations (Google scholar).

The talk discusses the use of Duality Theory to greatly simplify the solution of otherwise much more intricate optimization problems. This is illustrated by considering applications arising in Robust Optimization,Statistical Information Theory, Design of Mechanical Structure and Machine Learning.
