This issue of Computational Optimization and Applications collects a selection of refereed papers that have been presented at the Workshop on Nonlinear Optimization, Variational Inequalities and Equilibrium Problems held in Erice, Italy, on July 02–10, 2010 at the “E. Majorana” Centre for Scientific Culture within the “G. Stampacchia” International School of Mathematics. The Workshop was the sixth in a series of Workshops on Nonlinear Optimization held in Erice from 1995 every three years.

In the tradition of these meetings, the purpose of the Workshop was to review and discuss recent advances and promising research trends in Nonlinear Optimization and its applications, with a particular focus on Variational Inequalities and Equilibrium Problems.

The meeting was attended by 62 people from 17 different countries, with 15 invited lectures and 39 contributed talks. Besides the lectures, several formal and informal discussions took place. The result was a wide and deep review of the present
