Subject: Call for Nominations: COIN-OR Cup Competition

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 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

Submission deadline: Friday, October 5, 2018.

Please e-mail your submissions to 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

Subject: Computational Mathematics, South Korea, Sep 2018

As a CSE conference series, the Department of Computational Science &
Engineering is organizing the International Conference on
Computational Mathematics - Advances in Computational PDEs during
September 29 - October 2, 2018. The conference aims to provide a
platform to disseminate recent developments in finite element methods
and related methods for various PDEs. enable in-depth technical d
discussions on a wide variety of major computational efforts in
science a and engineering, and foster the interdisciplinary culture
required to meet r recent challenges in CSE. Further, it is planned to
provide a good e exposure for students and you young researchers and
encourage them to p pursue their research career in the these areas.
Funded by National R Research Foundation of Korea through the Center
for Mathematical A Analysis & Computation (CMAC), Yonsei University.
