23rd International Symposium on Mathematical Programming
1-6 Jul 2018 Bordeaux (France)


The committees are piloting the organization of the scientific program, the planning of the schedule and other events of the symposium.


Program Committee

The program committee is in charge of inviting plenary, semi-plenary, and keynote speakers. They are acting as AE for the refereeing of the papers associated to plenary and semi-plenary talks that shall be edited in a special issue of Mathematical Programming B. The program committee chair acts as guess editor for this special MPB issue.

The program committee consists of the co-chair of the conference clusters. As cluster co-chair, each program committee member looks over the coordination between the streams of their cluster, advising on defining compatible streams' planning. Cluster chairs are also in charge of organizing keynote invited talks for their cluster.

The members are:

  • Chair:
    • Michael Juenger, Prof, University of Cologne, Germany
  •  For Cluster 1: Discrete Optimization and Integer Programming
    • Dan Bienstock, Prof, Columbia University, USA
    • Gerard Cornuéjols, Pro, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
    • Michel Goemans, Prof, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA
  • For Cluster 2: Optimization under Uncertainty
    • Laurent El Ghaoui, Prof, UC Berkeley, USA
    • Simge Küçükyavuz, Ass Prof, Ohio State University, USA
    • Daniel Kuhn, Prof, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausane, Switzerland
  • For Cluster 3:  Continuous Optimization
    • Frank Curtis, Ass Prof, Lehigh University, USA
    • Claudia Sagastizabal, Researcher, IMPA (Mathematical sciences research institute), Brasil
    • Stephen Wright, Prof, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
  • For Cluster 4: Problem Specific Models, Algorithm Implementations, and Software
    • Michael Ferris, prof, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
    • Martine Labbé, Prof, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium
    • Stefan Wild, Researcher, Argonne, USA
  • Representing the Organization Committee
    • Francois Vanderbeck, Prof, U. Bordeaux & Inria team Realopt (Vice Chair)
    • Francois Clautiaux, Prof, U. Bordeaux & Inria team Realopt


Scientific Committee

The scientific committee members are acting as referees of the invited and contributed talk abstracts that are submitted to their stream. They also contribute to building the schedule of the parallel sessions : they are in charge of defining sessions (some with 3 talks others with 4) on the web platform, of inviting talks or sessions into their stream, and of validating the system built overall schedule. In these tasks, each stream committee shall be asssisted by a local committee member (selected for his/her thematic proximity), who shall specifically look over the global planning to the stream's sessions over the week. The scientific committee consists of the co-chairs of the conference streams :

Local Committee

The role of the local committee is to make the link between the sientific and the logistic organization of the conference. The local committee is in charge of finalising the planning of the scientific program : they setup the parallel sessions  planning (scheduling the sessions that have been built by the scientific committee of each stream), and they schedule the (semi-)plenaries and keynotes in coordonation with the program comittee. The local committee is composed of the researchers in the field of Mathematical Optimization of Inria Bordeaux (and associated), the Mathematics Institute (IMB) and the Computer Science Lab (LABRI), along some colleagues of the French community who are helping to have a broader panel of expertise.
