COAP 2016 Best Paper prize


Each year, the editorial board of Computational Optimization and Applications (COAP) selects a paper from the preceding year’s publications for the Best Paper Award. In 2016, 97 papers were published by COAP. The recipients of the 2016 Best Paper Award are Pietro Belotti (FICO Xpress), Pierre Bonami (IBM-CPLEX), Matteo Fischetti (University of Padova), Andrea Lodi (École Polytechnique de Montréal), Michele Monaci (University of Bologna), Amaya Nogales-Gómez (Huawei Paris), and Domenico Salvagnin (University of Padova) for their paper “On handling indicator constraints in mixed integer programming” published in volume 65, pages 545–566. This article highlights the research related to the award winning paper.

The paper [2] addresses possible ways to handle disjunctive constraints, i.e., constraints that either hold or are relaxed depending on the value of a binary variable. Typically, these conditions are modelled by using indicator constraints, i.e., by associating a valid large...
