Congratulations to Pietro Belotti of Clemson and the Couenne development team, who received the 2010 COIN-OR Cup for his work on the Couenne MINLP solver.

The goal of COIN-OR Cup prize is to reward effective utilization of COIN-OR or valuable contributions to COIN-OR. This year’s Couenne submission for the prize can be cited for both!  Couenne effectively utilized several COIN-OR projects and contributed to their development. It has the advantage of an extensible solver library/framework and is available as a part of COIN-OR.  Finally, it is quite valuable as a general MINLP solver with the performance on par with other state-of-the-art solvers in this class, as testified by several users in distinct application areas.

See for more information.

The ForrestFest/COIN-OR 10th Anniversary Fest/COIN-OR Cup Fest at the Iron Cactus was a great success.  A good time was had by all  Thanks to Robin Lougee and Alan King for yeoman work organizing all the activities.
