Title: COIN-OR: Open-Source Software for Operations Research
Speaker: Matthew Saltzman, Associate Professor of Mathematical Sciences,
Clemson University and President, the COIN-OR Foundation, Inc.
Abstract: The COIN-OR initiative (the Computational Infrastructure for
Operations Research) supports the creation and dissemination of
open-source software for operations research. In this presentation, I
will discuss the concept of open source software and the benefits of open
source for the computational O.R. community. I will also describe the
COIN-OR project itself, the role of the COIN-OR Foundation, the various
components currently distributed by COIN-OR, and how users and developers
can make use of and contribute to the initiative.
