The International Conference on
Nonlinear Programming with Applications

Date : 29 May - 1 June, 2006
Venue : Fudan University, Shanghai, China
Shanghai is known as the "Oriental Paris" and "Pearl of China".  As the largest and most prosperous city in the nation, Shanghai is the economic, financial and cultural center.  What make Shanghai particularly attractive are the many different styles of architecture and design throughout the city.  Shanghai has a rich history and culture with more than 70 popular historic and cultural sites.  In Shanghai, there is a rapidly growing new Pudong district, China’s largest Economic Zone.  It is characterized by its famous landmark, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, and a cluster of newly built skyscrapers.  Shanghai is within 1-2 hours driving distance of the famous garden cities Suzhou and Hangzhou.
