The International Workshop on Nonlinear Analysis and Optimization Theory taking place in Porto, Portugal, from April 19 to 21, 2017 is dedicated to the 60th birthday of Aram Arutyunov, Professor at Peoples' Friendship University of Russia and Moscow State University.

Jointly organized by Porto University and RUDN University, this event constitutes a great opportunity to celebrate excellence in Mathematics. 
We consider extremely fit to draw on the very significant messages that Professor Aram Arutyunov have been building over the years through his work:
•    promote research of excellence in our community, and
•    increase the awareness of other pertinent scientific and education communities as well as of society at large.
