**“Convexité Généralisée”**

**Luminy-Marseille (France)****June 17-21, 1996**

The 5th International Symposium on Generalized Convexity and Monotonicity was held at the Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM) in Luminy-Marseille (France), from 17 to 21 of June, 1996. About 70 participants from 13 different countries attended the conference and over fifty lectures were given.

This was the first International Symposium on Generalized Convexity which was organized by the Working Group on Generalized Convexity, founded in 1994. It was also the first symposium in the series which was sponsored by the Mathematical Programming Society. Furthermore, the Mathematical Research Center of France CIRM lent its support to this important event in applied mathematics. In contrast to previous symposia, GCV had a stronger emphasis on generalized monotonicity. Another novelty at GCV, well received by the participants, was the inclusion of three invited lectures from scholars of neighboring fields, namely nonsmooth analysis (F.Clarke), mathematical programming/complementarity problems/variational inequalities (J.S.Pang) and stochastic programming (R.Wets). The proceedings of the conference have been published in a 480 page volume by Kluwer Academic Publishers.
