The COIN-OR Cup Celebration

The most coveted award in computational O.R., to be presented by the 2010 Cup Chair (who, by astounding coincidence and long tradition, is also the 2009 winner). Will you try for the cup?

COIN-OR Booth
We're Booth 9B this year.

Visit the Computational Infrastructure for Operations Research booth to learn about high-quality, free, open-source tools for OR professionals and students, suitable for commercial, educational, and personal use. COIN-OR is the place to go when you need a `white box' for algorithm research and development.

COIN-OR is celebrating its 10th year as a community initiative to build an open infrastructure of algorithms, models, data and other digital tools. COIN-OR is hosted online by INFORMS and is a strategic partner of the INFORMS Computing Society.
Organizer: Lou Hafer

Volunteers are always welcome to "staff the booth." Got a half hour to volunteer? Drop by the booth and chat with other Coin-OR community members and random members of the public.

For those of you who missed it, a photo and another photo of our retro booth decor!

COIN-OR Annual News Round Up
We're gathering news for our Annual Report summarizing "what's new" and "what's happening" with COIN-OR. With some luck and ambition, this will also make it into the Computing Society Fall newsletter and an OR/MS Today article.

Add your news to the Annual Report 2010 wiki page. Say what you want, how you want, as long as you want. We'll pull the information as late as possible and edit it to create an Annual Report for distribution at INFORMS.

COIN-OR Report to the INFORMS Computing Society
To further their mutual goals, the COIN-OR Foundation, Inc. and the INFORMS Computing Society (ICS) formed a strategic partnership in 2006. A report on the 2010 activities of COIN-OR will be given at the ICS business meeting. See the conference program for room and time information.
