The Mixed Integer Programming Workshop (MIP2022) will be held May 23-26 at Rutgers University with DIMACS as local host. We will try to keep this webpage updated with event details, but for the most up-to-date information about MIP 2022, please visit the MIP 2022 primary webpage.

New for 2022: MIP includes a computational competition! Participants are invited to create novel general-purpose primal heuristics for mixed-integer linear optimization problems. High-quality submissions will be offered an expedited review process in the journal Mathematical Programming Computation. Full information about the competition can be found here.

MIP is a single-track workshop that is recognized as a major meeting covering many aspects of mathematical optimization including integer programming, stochastic, and nonconvex optimization. Many of the most challenging optimization problems that arise in practice are modeled as mixed-integer programming problems. These include problems in scheduling, manufacturing, power network design and analysis, disaster response, and engineering design. In many applications, uncertainty in data and nonlinearity in objectives or constraints leads to challenging optimization problems that require cutting-edge developments in research.

The talks presented at MIP are by invitation, but it includes a poster session to which students can contribute their research. Confirmed speakers are:

  • Manuel Aprile (University of Padova)
  • Beste Basciftci (University of Iowa)
  • Sam Burer (University of Iowa)
  • Marianna De Santis (University of Roma)
  • Samuel Fiorini (ULB)

This year's edition of MIP features DANniversary—a special day of talks celebrating the 60th 62nd birthday of Daniel Bienstock, founder of the MIP workshop series. DANniversary is organizerd by Jeff Linderoth (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Alper Atamtürk (UC Berkeley), Gabor Pataki (University of North Carolina), and Oktay Günlük (Cornell University).

MIP workshops have been held annually in North America since 2003, making MIP 2022 the 19th edition of the series. With annual attendance of over 100 researchers, MIP has become a central activity of the integer programming community in North America. The previous workshops were held in New York (2003), Minneapolis (2005), Miami (2006), Montreal (2007), New York (2008), Berkeley (2009), Atlanta (2010), Waterloo (2011), Davis (2012), Madison (2013), Columbus (2014), Chicago (2015), Miami (2016), Montreal (2017), Greenville (2018), Boston (2019), Online (2020), Online (2021).

MIP 2022 is held in association with the ongoing DIMACS Special Focus on Bridging Continuous and Discrete Optimization.


MIP is open to all who register (but you must register to attend). Talks at MIP are by invitation. Students are invited to submit posters for possible inclusion in the poster session.


Poster Session: There will be a student poster session that includes a best poster award. Students are invited to submit an abstract of their work (pdf file, up to 500 words). The deadline for the abstract submission is March, 10. The program committee will select the poster competition finalists and presenters. Travel support will be offered to selected students, both US-based and non-US-based.


COVID-19 Protocols: As required by Rutgers University, attendees must show proof of vaccination to attend. Additionally, DIMACS requests that masks be worn in the lecture room and other crowded indoor spaces. (Click here for more detailed information on COVID-19 policies.)

Parking: If you do not have a Rutgers parking permit and you plan to drive to the workshop venue, there will be free parking nearby in Lot 30 and in the College Ave Parking Deck, but you must register your car to park. A link to register for parking will be provided in the confirmation message you receive when you register for the workshop.
