Call for site pre-proposals ISMP 2018

The Symposium Advisory Committee of the Mathematical Optimization Society issues a call for pre-proposals to organize and host ISMP 2018, 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 USA and Canada are eligible to host ISMP 2018.

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 2015 in Pittsburgh. Members of the SAC are

  • Michael Jünger, Germany
  • Jan Karel Lenstra, The Netherlands, chair
  • Jeff Linderoth, USA
  • Andy Philpott, New Zealand
  • Kim-Chuan Toh, Singapore
  • Luis Nunes Vicente, Portugal

Preliminary bids should be brief and contain information pertaining to the

  1. location,
  2. facilities,
  3. logistics: accommodation and transportation, and
  4. likely local organizers.

Further information can be obtained from any member of the advisory committee. Please address your preliminary bids until October 15, 2014 to Jan Karel Lenstra (jkl@cwi.nl).
