    1. A synopsis of an effective use of COIN-OR or valuable contribution to COIN-OR.
    2. A cover letter explaining the significance.
  • The winner must accept the prize in person at the 2007 INFORMS meeting --- so we can all celebrate appropriately (see "Long Ceremony" below).
  • Submission deadline: October 31, 2007.
  • Self-nomination is welcomed.
  • We especially encourage nominations of effective use of COIN-OR that the community may not know about.

Submissions will be judged by a committee of members of the INFORMS Conference program committee and the COIN-OR Foundation, Inc.

Long Ceremony: The actual awarding of the COIN-OR INFORMS Cup will take place during a long ceremony at a congenial locale where cups are welcome (see below). All entrants and their supporters are welcome to join in the celebration and regale (rile) the prize winners.
