The feasible regions of mathematical optimization models quite often exhibit a high degree of symmetry. In recent years, several groups of researchers have independently worked on algorithmic approaches to exploit such symmetries in a variety of contexts. Many of the techniques that have been developed are related or rely on similar computational tools. The workshop brought together researchers working on symmetry aspects in different areas of optimization. The exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge between these areas lead to identification of important directions for future research activities.
