Call for nomination of the 2021 Beale — Orchard-Hays Prize
Nominations are invited for the 2021 Beale — Orchard-Hays Prize for Excellence in
Computational Mathematical Programming.
Nominations are invited for the 2021 Beale — Orchard-Hays Prize for Excellence in Computational Mathematical Programming. The Prize is sponsored by the Mathematical Optimization Society, in memory of Martin Beale and William Orchard-Hays, pioneers in computational optimization. It is awarded to the authors of work that exemplifies excellence in this field.
Nominated works must have been appeared in the open literature between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2020, and may demonstrate excellence in any aspect of computational optimization, including the development of high-quality optimization algorithms and software, the experimental evaluation of optimization algorithms, and the development of new methods for the empirical testing of optimization techniques. Full details of prize criteria and eligibility can be consultedhere.
The members of the 2021 Beale — Orchard-Hays Prize committee are:
- Robert Fourer (Chair), AMPL Optimization & Northwestern University
- Jonathan Eckstein, Rutgers University
- Julian Hall, University of Edinburgh
- Petra Mutzel, Universität Bonn
- Dominique Orban, Polytechnique Montréal
Nominations should provide publication details, a short summary of the nominated paper, and a case for awarding the prize. The paper’s final published version should be included as an attachment. The Prize Committee may choose to request further supporting material and justification from the nominees.
The deadline for nominations is
March 15, 2021.
Nominations should be submitted to Robert Fourer, firstname.lastname@example.org, with a copy to email@example.com. The nominating materials should clearly indicate the return addresses to be used for confirmation and further correspondence.
