 CONFERENCE VENUE

 The symposium will take place at TU Berlin (Str. des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin) in the heart of the city close to the Tiergarten park.

 The opening ceremony will take place on Sunday, August 19, 2012, at the Konzerthaus on the historic Gendarmenmarkt which is considered one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. The opening session will feature the presentation of awards (Beale-Orchard-Hayes Prize, Lagrange Prize, Dantzig Prize, Fulkerson Prize, Tucker Prize, and Tseng Lectureship) by the Mathematical Optimization Society accompanied by symphonic music. This is followed by the welcome reception with a magnificent view on Gendarmenmarkt.

 The conference dinner will take place at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt ("House of the Cultures of the World") located in the Tiergarten park with a beer garden on the shores of the Spree river and a view on the German Chancellery.

 HISTORICAL LECTURES

 In addition to the scientific program ISMP 2012 will offer an extensive coverage of the history of optimization. Five special history lectures are scheduled reporting on work of Euler, Leibniz, Weierstrass, Minkowski, and the inventor of the electronic computer Konrad Zuse. Every ISMP participant will receive a free gift, a hard cover book, edited by Martin Groetschel, with about 50 short stories on optimization history. Experts will provide answers to  questions such as "Who invented interior point algorithms or the simplex algorithm?", "Was the TSP invented by an archeologist?", or "What does the cold war have to do with the maximum principle?"
