ISMP 2012 will take place in Berlin, Germany, August 19 - 24, 2012. ISMP is the world congress of mathematical optimization and is held every three years on behalf of the Mathematical Optimization Society.
Second Call for PRESENTATIONS and SESSION PROPOSALS
Presentations on all theoretical, computational and practical aspects of mathematical programming in one of the program clusters are welcome (see www.ismp2012.org/en/clusters-and-cluster-chairs ). Invited and contributed presentations will be organized in parallel sessions, each session consisting of three talks. Interested session organizers are invited to contact the cluster chairs of the cluster that fits their particular topic.
The deadline for submitting invited sessions has been extended to March 31, 2012. The deadline for submitting titles and abstracts of presentations is April 15, 2012. There is a one talk per speaker policy at ISMP, i.e., no participant will be able to register more than one presentation. Abstract submission and registration can be done online, via the conference webpage at www.ismp2012.org.
