Poster submission deadline: March 1, 2016
Registration deadline: April 1, 2016

You are cordially invited to participate in the upcoming workshop in Mixed
Integer Programming (MIP 2016). The registration page is now open until
April 1, 2016:

The 2016 Mixed Integer Programming workshop will be the thirteenth 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 features a poster session that provides an additional
opportunity to share and discuss recent research in MIP.

All workshop participants are invited to submit a poster abstract before
March 1, 2016. There will be an award for the best poster presented by a
student. To submit an abstract, please email a two page PDF containing a
detailed abstract of the poster to:

Space for posters is limited; and the submitted poster abstracts will be
used to select the accepted posters. Therefore, it is important that the
abstract provides a good description of the research to be presented. We
expect to send out acceptance notifications around March 15.

One of the aims of the workshop is to facilitate research collaboration;
thus it is designed to provide ample time for discussion and interaction
between the participants. Thanks to the generous support by our sponsors,
registration is free; and travel support is available for some 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 1 deadline and indicate that they wish to be considered for funding.
We expect to make funding decisions around March 15.
