Announcement and call for talk proposals for the 3rd JuMP-dev workshop, Santiago, Chile, March, 2019


#1

Dear colleagues,

We are excited to announce the third JuMP-dev workshop will take place in Santiago, Chile on March 12-14, 2019.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together students, researchers, and practitioners with interests in the software aspects of JuMP and related packages. The workshop is open for anybody to attend. In particular, we invite new contributors and those who have not met the core development team.

The workshop will include hands-on tutorials (ranging from no-experience necessary, to advanced usages of JuMP), talks by participants and core developers, and ample time for collaboration.

Participants are invited to submit proposals for talks on the following topics:

  • JuMP core development (MathOptInterface, JuMP 1.0)
  • Mathematical optimization solvers written in Julia
  • Automatic differentiation in Julia
  • Julia interfaces to solvers
  • JuMP extensions (stochastic programming, robust optimization, multiobjective optimization, …)
  • Optimization libraries that use JuMP
  • Significant uses of JuMP in applications
  • JuMP for teaching
  • Developer tools for JuMP

Talks should focus on the technical aspects related to JuMP, as opposed to general interest talks. In particular, the committee is looking for talks that will start off discussions during the workshop and beyond, and for talks that present developments that the community may not be aware of.

Talk proposals are welcomed until December 21st, and talk acceptance will be notified by January 4th.

To register your (free!) attendance, and optionally submit a talk proposal, please use the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/2nEljULHwC3zzcE13.

Venue details and registration instructions will be announced soon after talk acceptance notifications (details may depend on number of submitted talk proposals). For more information on the workshop, please see http://www.juliaopt.org/meetings/santiago2019.

JuMP (https://github.com/JuliaOpt/JuMP.jl) is an open-source software package for optimization that supports a broad class of problems. Its impact in the field of computational optimization was recognized by the 2016 INFORMS Computing Society prize. JuMP has been a NumFOCUS Sponsored Project since 2018.

JuMP-dev committee:

  • Joey Huchette (Google and Rice University)
  • Joaquim Garcia (PSR and PUC-Rio)
  • Miles Lubin (Google)
  • Benoît Legat (UCLouvain)
  • Juan Pablo Vielma (MIT)
