CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: 14th annual "COIN-OR Cup" competition
sponsored by the COIN-OR Foundation.

The COIN-OR Cup recognizes and celebrates the best contributions
to open source operations research software development and use
associated with the COIN-OR software collection. To remind you,
COIN-OR stands for "COmputational INfrastructure for OPerations
Research". It is the definitive collection of free open source
operations research software that lets you concentrate on
your research instead of re-implementing software. See
https://www.coin-or.org. Get on board!


A submission or nomination must contain:
 1. A synopsis of an effective use of COIN-OR or
    valuable contribution to COIN-OR (or both!),
    including an explanation of its significance.
    Maximum 3 pages (pdf format).
 2. Copies of relevant papers or documents (pdf format).

We especially encourage nominations describing effective use
of COIN-OR that the community may not know about.
Self-nominations are welcome.

Submission deadline: Friday, October 5, 2018.

Please e-mail your submissions to coin-cup at coin-or.org in a single
zipped archive, containing a description of your submission and
copies of all relevant papers/documents in pdf format.

The winner must accept the prize in person at the 2018 INFORMS
Annual Meeting so we can all celebrate appropriately (see below).


The 2018 COIN-OR Cup will be awarded at a celebration on Monday
November 5 during the INFORMS Annual meeting in Phoenix, AZ.
All entrants, supporters, and other interested parties are welcome
to join the celebration and regale, rile, and roast the prize
winners. Details of the event will be announced later.

The winning entry will be announced at this celebration event,
and posted on the COIN-OR website https://www.coin-or.org.
