Regina Burachik, Jeya Jeyakumar and Guoyin Li organized a special session “Mathematical and Computational Optimization” at the 60th Annual Meeting of Australian Mathematical Society (from 5-7 December 2016, Australian National University, Canberra) dedicated to Laureate Professor Jonathan Michael Borwein. The session had 13 speakers and 2 keynotes, including mathematicians from Australia, Spain, Brazil, and New Zealand. All speakers came together to commemorate and acknowledge Jon’s impact and seminal contributions to mathematics and in particular to optimization. Before each talk, the speakers shared their unique experiences in working with Jon and recalled how Jon has greatly influenced their research and life.
