Workshop description and scope

Information-based complexity (IBC) is concerned with the complexity and algorithms for continuous problems where information is incomplete, contaminated and priced. Important examples are high dimensional integration, differential and integral equations and numerical optimization. Problems can be studied in the worst case, average case or randomised settings. The focus is on questions such as: What is the least possible cost (e.g., in terms of the number of function evaluations) to obtain approximation with given error? How does the cost change with dimensionality? What algorithms achieve the minimum cost?
