Call for nomination of the 2018 Beale — OrchardHays Prize
Nominations are invited for the 2018 Beale — OrchardHays Prize for Excellence in
Computational Mathematical Programming.
The Prize is sponsored by the Mathematical Optimization Society, in memory of
Martin Beale and William OrchardHays, 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 highquality 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.
