COIN-OR is hosted online by INFORMS and is a strategic partner of the INFORMS Computing Society.

Volunteers are welcome to "man the booth." Got a half hour to volunteer? Drop by the booth. We'll have a sign up sheet where you can let us know when you will be by to volunteer (or better yet, sign up here). Add any booth related comments to this Wiki page here.
COIN-OR Annual News Round Up We're gathering news for (i) article in the October issue of ORMS Today, and (2) an annual report summarizing "what's new" and "what's happening" with COIN-OR, and (3) a short article in the INFORMS Computing Society (CS) Fall Newsletter.
