- well-posedness, optimality and stability of problems in optimization, calculus of variations, variational analysis, optimal control and control lability;

- variational principles in optimization;

- regularization techniques for ill-posed problems;

- numerical optimization methods and their stable behavior under perturbations.

The workshop is a continuation of a series of meetings with the same title that was initiated in 1987 in Milan, Italy, by a small group of Bulgarian and Italian mathematicians working in the field of Well-Posedness in Optimization and Related Topics. The subsequent editions of the workshop were held in Sofia (1989), Santa Margherita Ligure (1991), Sozopol (1993), Marseille (1995), Sozopol (1997), Gargnano (1999), Warsaw (2001), Marseille (2003), Borovets (2005), Alicante (2007), Levico Termi (2009) and Borovets (2011), where the scope and the attendance were substantially enlarged.

The aim of the series of workshops has been and still is to bring together people that share common interests in the general area of stability of optimization problems in a broad sense, and in particular younger researchers interested in this area. Although the workshops have kept its original name, they has gradually become much larger in scope as one of the well-established international meetings in Variational Analysis, Topological and Functional Analytic Methods in Optimization, Optimal Control, and related Applications.

We are proud to announce that the meeting will honor the anniversaries of Professors Asen Dontchev, Petar Kenderov, Vladimir Veliov and Tulio Zolezzi, who have not only been actively involved in the organization of meetings in the series but also have made significant contributions to the area.
