[DMANET] 2015 Mixed-Integer Programming (MIP) Workshop: Call for Participation and Poster Submissions

Date: June 1-4, 2015

Location: Gleacher Center, Downtown Chicago
Local Organizer: The University of Chicago Booth School of Business

Web site and registration: https://sites.google.com/site/mipworkshop2015/

Poster submission deadline: March 15, 2015

You are cordially invited to participate in the upcoming workshop in Mixed
Integer Programming (MIP 2015). The registration page
is now open. This year's workshop will have a registration fee of $150
($50 per students).

The 2015 Mixed Integer Programming workshop will be the twelfth in a series
of annual workshops held in North America designed to bring the integer
programming community together to discuss very recent developments in the
field. The workshop series consists of a single track of invited talks and
a poster session.

The poster session will be held the first evening of the workshop (June 1,
Monday). All workshop participants are invited to submit a poster
abstract. *There will
be an award for the best poster presented by a student or postdoctoral
researcher. *The poster can be about partial or complete results in a topic
related to mixed-integer programming (linear or nonlinear). To submit an
abstract, please email a two page PDF containing a detailed abstract of the
poster to:

*mip2015@chicagobooth.edu <mip2015@chicagobooth.edu>*

by March 15, 2015. Space for posters may be limited, and the abstract will
be used to decide which posters are accepted, so it is important that the
abstract provide a good description of the research to be presented. We
expect to send out notifications by around April 1, 2015.

Travel support is available for students and postdocs who present posters
at the workshop. Students and postdocs who wish to apply for travel support
must submit a poster abstract by the March 15 deadline, and indicate they
wish to be considered for funding. We expect to make funding decisions by
around April 1, 2015.
