We present SuperSCS: a fast and accurate method for solving large-scale convex conic problems. SuperSCS combines the SuperMann algorithmic framework with the Douglas-Rachford splitting which is applied on the homogeneous self-dual embedding of conic optimization problems: a model for conic optimization problems which simultaneously encodes the optimality conditions and infeasibility/unboundedness certificates for the original problem. SuperMann allows the use of fast quasi-Newtonian directions such as a modified restarted Broyden-type direction and Anderson's acceleration.
