COIN-OR (www.coin-or.org) is an initiative to promote open-source
software, standards, models, and data for operations research. More
than a dozen projects are hosted by COIN-OR, including linear and
integer programming solvers, frameworks for implementing branch, cut,
and price algorithms, libraries of cutting planes for mixed integer
programs, interior point solvers for nonlinear programs, tools for
derivative-free optimization, and interfaces for modeling stochastic

The goals of this workshop are to provide:

    * Hands-on tutorials for new users,
    * Forums for users, would-be users, and developers to exchange
      ideas and experiences,
    * Case-studies of research and business uses, and
    * Discussions on the future direction and shape of open-source in
      operations research. 


Call for Participation:

Proposals for contributed talks, including a title and short abstract,
should be sent to dimacs06 at coin-or.org by May 1st, 2006. Acceptance
decisions will be made by May 30, 2006. Contributed talks on
open-source projects for operations research not based on COIN-OR are
also welcome.

Registration is open to all. Graduate students and recent PhDs are
especially encouraged to attend. Thanks to the generous support of
IBM, many opportunities for registration fees waiver and travel
support are available. To request support, write
