AIMMS is an advanced development environment for
building optimization based operations research applications and
advanced planning systems. AIMMS distinguishes itself from other
optimization software by a number of advanced modeling concepts, as well
as a full graphical user interface both for developers and end-users.
Commercial and open source solvers are available for
all major mathematical programming types (CP will become available in
2011). Even uncertainty can be modeled through the concepts of Scenario
Analysis, Stochastic Programming and Robust Optimization.
Mastering AIMMS is straightforward since the
mathematical modeling language concepts will be intuitive to Operations
Research professionals and the point-and-click graphical interface is
easy to use. The AIMMS optimization software comes with comprehensive
documentation, available electronically and in book form.
Gurobi Optimization is in the business of providing robust, high-performance optimization software based upon the latest technologies for linear, quadratic and mixed-integer programming.
The computational progress in linear, quadratic and mixed integer programming over the last twenty years has been nothing short of remarkable, enabling business, scientific and other applications that literally would have been unapproachable just a few short years ago. The Gurobi founders have been at the forefront of these developments.
The Gurobi suite of optimization products represent completely new implementations, redesigned from the ground up to fully exploit the latest mathematical and “engineering” improvements in the underlying methodologies, as well as developments in modern desktop computing hardware and programming environments; moreover, the Gurobi team is committed not just to providing the best technology now available, but to continuing to push forward the frontier of optimization solution capability.

The Institute for Computational Sustainability (ICS), founded in 2008 with support from
an Expeditions in Computing grant from the National Science Foundation (USA), advances
research in the emerging field of Computational Sustainability. The vision of the institute
is that computer scientists can - and should - play a key role in increasing the efficiency
and effectiveness in the way we manage and allocate our natural resources, while enriching
and transforming Computer Science and related fields. The institute is a joint venture
involving scientists from Cornell University, Bowdoin College, the Conservation Fund,
Howard University, Oregon State University, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
The General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) is a high-level modeling system for mathematical programming and optimization. It consists of a language compiler and a stable of integrated high-performance solvers. GAMS is tailored for complex, large scale modeling applications, and allows you to build large maintainable models that can be adapted quickly to new situations.
IVU Traffic Technologies AG has been working for more than thirty years with
some 300 software engineers to ensure that transport in the world's major
cities operates reliably and on time. People and vehicles in expanding cities
are continually on the move - a logistical challenge which calls for
intelligent and reliable software systems. The standardised software products
of the IVU.suite and tailor-made IT solutions are used to plan, optimise and
control the scheduling of vehicle fleets and personnel. Other systems support
the choice of branch locations or ensure that election results are determined
