  • 1.  COIN-OR Cup: call for nominations (2nd announcement)

    Posted 29 days ago
    CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: 17th annual "COIN-OR Cup" competition sponsored
    by the COIN-OR Foundation.

    The COIN-OR Cup recognizes and celebrates the best contributions to
    open source operations research software development and use
    associated with the COIN-OR software collection. To remind you,
    COIN-OR stands for "COmputational INfrastructure for OPerations
    Research". It is the definitive collection of free open source
    operations research software that lets you concentrate on your
    research instead of re-implementing software. See Get on board!


    A submission or nomination must contain:
    1. A synopsis of an effective use of COIN-OR or valuable contribution
    to COIN-OR (or both!), including an explanation of its significance.
    Maximum 3 pages (pdf format).
    2. Copies of relevant papers or documents (pdf format).
    We especially encourage nominations describing effective use of
    COIN-OR that the community may not know about.
    Self-nominations are welcome and encouraged.

    Submission deadline: Friday, October 3, 2021.

    Please e-mail your submissions to in a single
    zipped archive, containing a description of your submission and copies
    of all relevant papers/documents in pdf format.

    The winner is normally announced and celebrated during the INFORMS
    annual meeting. Due to travel uncertainty, the winner may instead
    be announced online at the COIN-OR general meeting; details for the
    announcement and celebration will be revealed when available.
