Call for nomination of the 2018 Lagrange Prize
Nominations are solicited for the 2018 Lagrange Prize in Continuous Optimization,
administered jointly by the Mathematical Optimization Society (MOS) and the Society
for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
The Lagrange Prize, established in 2002, is awarded for an outstanding contribution
in the area of continuous optimization. The work will be judged on its mathematical
quality, significance, and originality. Clarity of the exposition and the value
of the work in practical applications may be considered as secondary attributes.
The 2018 prize will be presented at the SIAM Annual Meeting, July 9-13, 2018, in
The work to be considered should form the final publication of the main result(s)
and should have been published between the years of 2012 to 2017 as an article in
a recognized journal, a comparable, well-referenced volume intended to publish final
publications only, or a monograph consisting chiefly of original results rather
than previously published material. Extended abstracts and prepublications, and
articles in published journals, journal sections or proceedings that are intended
to publish non-final papers, are not eligible.
The award will include a certificate containing the citation and a cash prize of
US$ 1,500. In the event of joint authorship, the prize will be divided.

- Philip E. Gill, University of California, San Diego
- Andreas Griewank, Yachay University, Ecuador
- Etienne de Klerk, Tilburg University and Delft University of Technology
