It was dedicated to Professor R. Tyrrell Rockafellar on the occasion of his 80th birthday, to honor his exceptional contributions in mathe- matics and in particular to the genaral area covered by the title of the conference and beyond. Information about the conference can be found at http://terryfest2015.xlim. fr. This special issue of Mathematical Programming Series B contains papers based but not limited to presentations at the conference. After the conference an open call was made for papers in the general area of Variational Analysis and Optimization which found enthusiastic response from the community. It was not surprising that most of the papers received were in many ways related to the fundamental contributions of Professor R.T. Rockafellar to the area, in particular to nonsmooth analysis, functional analysis, nonlinear program- ming, mathematical economics, risk theory, quantitative ﬁnance, numerical methods for optimization and optimal control. A careful attention was paid to the balance between theoretical, numerical
