The workshop is dedicated to the memory of Jos Sturm
Jos Sturm passed away on December 6, 2003, after an illness of
nearly two months.
Jos was only 32 years old.
All our thoughts go to
his wife Changquing and their little daughter Stefanie, and to his family.
We deeply regret the loss of a dear colleague and friend.
Jos' dedication to his work,
his endless enthusiasm,
his kindness and
readyness to help will be very much missed.
Jos made important contributions to the field of Optimization.
He is internationally
known, in particular, for SeDuMi, an algorithm he developped for semidefinite
