Banach spaces and optimization : Conference on the occasion of Robert Deville’s 60th birthday

First announcement

Dear Colleague,

In 2019 our friend Robert Deville will celebrate his 60th birthday. We think that it is a perfect opportunity for organizing a conference on the borderline of Banach space geometry, real analysis, optimization and all other fields that Robert’s work has influenced.

It is thus our pleasure to announce that the Conference on the occasion of Robert Deville’s 60th birthday will take place from June 16 to June 21, 2019 in Métabief, France. Métabief is a mountain village near the city of Besançon where Robert got his first full-time appointment some 30 years ago.
