[DMANET] Call for site pre-proposals: ISMP 2021

Call for site pre-proposals: ISMP 2021

The Symposium Advisory Committee (SAC) of the Mathematical Optimization
Society issues a call for pre-proposals to organize and host ISMP 2021,
the triennial International Symposium on Mathematical Programming.

ISMP is the flagship event of our society, regularly gathering over a
thousand scientists from around the world. The conference is usually
held in or around the month of August. Hosting ISMP provides a vital
service to the mathematical optimization community and often has a
lasting effect on the visibility of the hosting institution. It also
presents a significant challenge. This call for pre-proposals is
addressed at local groups willing to take up that challenge. The
tradition would be that only sites outside of Europe are eligible to
host ISMP 2021 (because ISMP 2018 is in Europe).

Preliminary bids will be examined by the Symposium Advisory Committee
(SAC), which will then issue invitations for detailed bids. The final
decision will be made and announced during ISMP 2018 in Bordeaux.
Members of the SAC are

·Jon Lee, USA, chair

·John Birge, USA

·Natashia Boland, USA

·Jose Correa, Chile

·Satoru Iwata, Japan

·Martin Skutella, Germany

·Levent Tuncel, Canada

·Yinyu Ye, USA

·Karen Aardal, Netherlands (ex officio)

·Luis Nunes Vicente, Portugal (ex officio)
