The article highlights the "Conference on Multi-scale Optimization Methods and Applications" hosted by the Center for Applied Optimization on February 26 -28, 2004 at the University of Florida in California. The focus of the conference was on the development of new solution methodologies. Among the applications presented were the circuit placement problem in very large scale integration design, the protein folding problem and drug design, a wireless sensor location problem, Internet optimization, the sitting of substations in an electrical network, optimal dosages in the treatment of cancer by radiation therapy, facility location and shape and topology optimization.
