JuMP-dev 2020

June 15-17, 2020, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.

This workshop is the fourth JuMP-dev workshop after the first, second, and third JuMP-dev workshops.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together students, researchers, and practitioners with interests in the software aspects of JuMP and related packages. The workshop is open for anybody to attend. In particular, we invite new contributors and those who have not met the core development team.


At present, we are planning for JuMP-dev to proceed as usual. However, we are aware of the rapidly changing situation with the novel coronavirus outbreak and resulting restrictions on international travel.

While it’s too early to make a call, there are plausible scenarios in which we may have to cancel the physical event.

Therefore, we recommend you delay travel planning until early May, or make travel plans with refundable fares.

We will evaluate the situation on April 15, and we will update this webpage if information comes to hand before then.


Registration is delayed while we await more information about COVID-19.

Abstract Submission

Abstract submission closed on February 29. We will notify accepted speakers in early March.

Similarly to previous iterations of the workshop, we invite participants to (optionally) present work related to JuMP. In particular, we especially seek talks related to:

Speakers are encouraged to highlight challenges and lessons learned, not only successes. Talks should be aimed at a general audience, but familiarity with JuMP/Julia can be assumed.

See the previous JuMP-dev workshops for examples of accepted talks.

Venue and accommodation

The workshop takes place in the Foyer Royal, Aula Magna, Place Raymond Lemaire 1, 1348 Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve. Note that the city of Leuven is called “Louvain” in French. This might cause confusion when traveling to Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium as in Wallonia (the French speaking part of Belgium) transportations heading to Leuven will claim to go to Louvain. One might then think that “Louvain” is a shortened version of “Louvain-la-Neuve” but it is not. The shortened version of “Louvain-la-Neuve” is “LLN”, “Louvain” always means “Leuven”.

We have reserved rooms for attendees with a reduced price at the Martin’s hotel in front of the venue. To book one of these rooms, follow this link and use the code UCL140620 with the dates between 14th of June and 18th of June 2020. You can choose between the Cosy Queen room at 140 € per night and the Charming Double room at 160 € per night. This price also includes the breakfast, the tourist tax and the access to fitness and the swimming pool. Note that this code will only work until the 11th of May.

Yurii Nesterov will give a plenary during the workshop, more details on the topic and schedule will be communicated shortly.
