Call for nomination of the 2018 Beale — Orchard-Hays Prize

Nominations are invited for the 2018 Beale — Orchard-Hays Prize for Excellence in Computational Mathematical Programming.

The Prize is sponsored by the Mathematical Optimization Society, in memory of Martin Beale and William Orchard-Hays, pioneers in computational mathematical programming. Nominated works must have been published between Jan 1, 2012 and Dec 31, 2017, and demonstrate excellence in any aspect of computational mathematical programming. "Computational mathematical programming" includes the development of high-quality mathematical programming algorithms and software, the experimental evaluation of mathematical programming algorithms, and the development of new methods for the empirical testing of mathematical programming techniques. Full details of prize rules and eligibility requirements can be found here.

The members of the 2018 Beale — Orchard-Hays Prize committee are:

  • Michael Grant (Chair), CVX Research
  • Tobias Achterberg, Gurobi Optimization
  • Jeff Linderoth, University of Wisconsin
