Not sure how many GLPK users attended INFORMS this year, but I noticed that there wasn’t any formal representation of this nice bundle of code. Obviously there were vendors selling commercial packages, but there was also a booth by the COIN-OR folks along with several sessions sponsored by or all about COIN-OR.
Made me think that it would be interesting and appropriate to have some sort of GLPK session at INFORMS. Not sure what form that would take, but since INFORMS just past, there should be some time to think about it. Also have no idea how to go about working something out with the INFORMS folks to make it happen. If there were some sort of session, I’d be happy to present something regarding how my research has benefitted from GLPK and would enjoy hearing how others have used it and/or what the plans are for future development.
Basically, just opening this up for discussion with the potential for some action. Any thoughts?
