Samir Adly, Université de Limoges (France)

Samir Adly earned a Master’s degree in Mathematics in 1992 and completed a PhD in Applied Mathematics in 1995, both at the University of Limoges, France. He served as an associate professor from 1997 to 2006 and has held the position of full professor in mathematics at the University of Limoges since 2006.
His research interests revolve around theoretical and algorithmic aspects related to variational inequalities, complementarity problems, optimization, nonsmooth dynamical systems, variational analysis, and their practical applications. Currently, he serves as the Director of the Mathematics and Security Information Department (Mathis) at the Institute of Research XLIM (UMR-CNRS 7252). He also leads the MOD team (Modeling, Optimization, Dynamics) within the Mathis department.
Notably, Professor Adly was recently elected as the President of the French SIAM (Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles). He has also played key roles as a general chair in numerous conferences and has been invited as a keynote speaker at several international conferences. Professor Adly’s academic contributions include the publication of more than 114 refereed journal articles and book chapters.

Didier Aussel, Université de Perpignan (France)

Didier Aussel is a Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Perpignan, France. He is an expert on the theoretical aspects of quasi-convex optimization and variational inequalities. In addition, his research also involves applications of optimization in engineering processes and mathematical economics, in particular for the modeling of electricity markets, a topic where Nash equilibrium and multi-leader-follower games play a central role. He has published around 70 research works (62 papers, 4 proceedings and 4 chapters in books) in several prominent mathematics journals such as Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications, as well as physics journals including Energy Conversion and Management. He is an associate editor of the journal Optimization and has served nearly a decade as the Co-Director and subsequently as Director of the French CNRS Research Group on Mathematics of Optimization and Applications. He has supervised several Ph.D. students, mainly on topics concerning nonsmooth variational analysis and electricity markets. Deeply interested in conveying research knowledge to young generations, he has been actively involved in the organization of research schools and research courses all over the world, including countries such as Vietnam, India, Chile, Peru, Cuba, Taiwan and Saudi Arabia.

Michel Thera, Université de Limoges (France)

Michel Théra is an Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at Université  de Limoges, Adjunct Professor at Federation University in Australia and Doctor Honoris Causa from the University of Quy Nhon. His  main area of mathematical expertise    is nonlinear functional analysis and optimization, with a special focus on convex analysis, monotone operator theory and the interaction among these fields and their interactions. His  publication record is truly high, with many of his papers appearing in the world’s leading journals in the field of optimization and nonlinear analysis. He has been involved in many administrative tasks at the institutional, national, and international levels. At the institutional level, he has been the head of the Department of Mathematics and Vice President of his university. At the national level, he has been a member of the Conseil National des Universités (CNU), a board that handles all the promotions and careers of mathematicians in French universities.  Another important landmark in his administrative activities that exemplifies his leadership in the mathematical community, has been to chair the French Applied Mathematics Society (SMAI). At the international level, he has chaired the international advisory board of the Centre for Informatics and Applied Optimisation at Federation University, Ballarat. He has been responsible or included in several national  and international research programs PGMO, ECOS with Chile, FASIC and ARC with Australia.  He is presently co-Director of the Stampacchia School at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture in Erice and Associate editor in most of the well recognized journals in Variational Analysis and Optimization. He was recently appointed co-editor-in-chief of Pacific Journal of Optimization.
