Call for nomination of the 2015 Beale-Orchard-Hays Prize
Nominations are invited for the 2015 Beale-Orchard Hays Prize for excellence in
computational mathematical programming that will be awarded at the International
Symposium on Mathematical Programming to be held in Pittsburgh in August 2015.
The Prize is sponsored by the Mathematical Optimization Society, in memory of
Martin Beale and William Orchard-Hays, pioneers in computational mathematical
programming. Nominated works must have been published between Jan 1, 2009 and
Dec 31, 2014, and demonstrate excellence in any aspect of computational
mathematical programming. "Computational mathematical programming"
includes the development of high-quality 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.
The 2015 Prize Committee consists of
