You are cordially invited to participate in the upcoming workshop in Mixed Integer Programming (MIP 2011). The 2011 Mixed Integer Programming workshop will be the eighth in a series of annual workshops held in North America designed to bring the integer programming community together to discuss very recent developments in the field. The workshop is especially focused on providing opportunities for junior researchers to present their most recent work. The workshop series consists of a single track of invited talks. MIP 2011 is scheduled immediately following IPCO XV, which will take place at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY from June 15-17 (http://ipco2011.uai.cl).

Space for posters may be limited, and we may not be able to accommodate all posters; we expect to send out notifications by March 30.

The workshop is designed to provide ample time for discussion and interaction between the participants, as one of its aims is to facilitate research collaboration. Thanks to the generous support by our sponsors, registration is free, and travel support is available. Students and postdocs who wish to apply for travel support are strongly encouraged to submit a poster abstract no later than March 15, as funding priority will be given to students and postdocs who have submitted poster abstracts. We expect to make funding decisions by March 30.

See you in Waterloo!
