COIN Fest at ICS 2015!

COIN Fest will take place on Saturday, January 10, the day before the start of the 2015 INFORMS Computing Society Biennial Meeting in Richmond, VA at the Omni Richmond Hotel.

The focus of the workshop will be the tools available in the COIN-OR Optimization Suite, a collection of interoperable open source tools from the COIN-OR repository. The workshop will run along lines similar to this one. It will be a hands-on workshop. Participants will be able to download and install all software required to do the exercises during the workshop and will be able to follow along on their laptops. All major operating systems will be supported (Windows, Linux, OS X).
