Beale--Orchard-Hays Prize at ISMP 2018

The Beale–Orchard-Hays Prize 2018 has been awarded to Liuqin Yang, Defeng Sun, and Kim-Chuan Toh for their paper on SDPNAL+, which describes a new method for semidefinite programming with nonnegative constraints (Mathematical Programming Computation 2015). The prize, which is awarded for excellence in computational mathematical programming has been presented at the 23rd International Symposium for Mathematical Programming (ISMP) in Bordeaux in July 2018.

The prize committee 2018 Tobias Achterberg, Michael Grant (chair), Jeffrey Linderoth, Petra Mutzel, and Ted Ralphs selected the winners from several worthy nominations. Every three years the Beale–Orchard-Hays Prize will be considered; it is awarded by the Mathematical Optimization Society.

Cover Feature for our work on virtual molecule library Jointly with the group of Oliver Koch (Medizinische Chemie, CCB) we got the Cover Feature for the June 2018 edition of ChemMedChem presenting our work on the new virtual molecule library CHIPMUNK. The library contains about 100 million small molecules that have been generated with in silicon reactions on accessible building blocks and analysed with their profile. The artwork (three chipmunks analysing the molecule library) has been produced by Melanie Winkelmann (MPI of Molecular Physiology). More information can be found in: Lina Humbeck, Sebastian Weigang, Till Schäfer, Petra Mutzel, Oliver Koch, CHIPMUNK: A Virtual Synthesizable Small‐Molecule Library for Medicinal Chemistry, Exploitable for Protein–Protein Interaction Modulators, ChemMedChem 6/2018.
