Subject: AIMMS/MOPTA Optimization Modeling Competition

4th AIMMS/MOPTA International Optimization Modeling Competition

It is with great pleasure that we announce the fourth AIMMS/MOPTA
Optimization Modeling Competition. The competition is jointly
organized by the conference organizers of MOPTA 2012
( and Paragon Decision Technology
( Finalists are expected to attend and present
their results at the MOPTA 2012 Conference to be held July 30-August
1, 2012 at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, USA.

Teams of at most three students can participate. The team leader has
to be a graduate student, though the other members of the team can be
advanced undergraduate students. Each member of the team must be
registered as a full-time student at a recognized educational
institution during the Spring term of the 2011-2012 academic
year. Students with a background in optimization, regardless of their
actual field of study, are eligible. Collaboration between students
from different departments is strongly encouraged. Each team must
declare a team advisor with which the team may consult about the
problem and their solution. It is the team advisor’s responsibility to
ensure that the students have appropriate knowledge for the
competition. The team advisor should not be involved as a participant
in the solution process.

As the conference is international, so is the competition. Teams from
all over the world can participate, as long as at least one team
member can come to the conference, should the team make it to the
final round. The official language of the competition is English.

The competition problem has been posted; please visit:

Subject: FEM Software HiFlow3, New Release 1.2 Available

The HiFlow³ developer team is delighted about the announcement of a
new release of our finite element package. The release of HiFlow³ 1.2
is an important step towards a multi-purpose finite element software
providing powerful tools for efficient and accurate solution of a wide
range of problems modeled by partial differential equations. We
enhanced not only the mathematical methods and added new features, but
moreover extended the hardware compatibility to target a wider range
of systems, e.g., accelerated by GPUs. Based on object-oriented
concepts and the full capabilities of C++ the HiFlow³ project follows
a modular and generic approach for building efficient parallel
numerical solvers. It provides highly capable modules dealing with the
mesh setup, finite element spaces, degrees of freedom, linear algebra
routines, numerical solvers, and output data for
visualization. Parallelism is introduced on two levels: coarse-grained
parallelism by means of distributed grids and distributed data
structures, and fine-grained parallelism by means of
platform-optimized linear algebra back-ends. Hiflow³ Version 1.2 is
available for download on our redesigned website at
