GAMS Presentations

  • ISMP 2015, July 12-17 2015, Pittsburgh, U.S.A.

  • MAGO'14 - XII Global Optimization Workshop, September 1 to September 4, 2014, Malaga, Spain

  • INFORMS Annual Meeting, October 06-09 2013, Minneapolis MN
    • Steve Dirkse; Pre-Conference GAMS Workshop: The slides and the zip file containing the files to add the library Workshop Demonstration Models to the model library tab in the GAMS IDE. To add this model library to your GAMS system:
      • Unzip the zip file in the GAMS system directory. This should create a directory demolib_ml next to the pre-existing datalib_ml, etc.
      • With a text editor, update the file idecfg.ini in the GAMS system directory to make the IDE aware of this new library. Just follow the same pattern as the other libraries there.
    • Steve Dirkse; Software Demonstration: The organization and content were very similar to the workshop mentioned above.

  • 13th INFORMS Computing Society Conference (ICS), January 06-08 2013, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
    • Steven Dirkse, Michael C. Ferris, Renger. van Nieuwkoop: gdxrrw: Exchanging Data Between GAMS and R. The source for the talk, including all GAMS source, R source, etc., and a little README describing how to generate it with knitr and beamer, is available in this zip file. To generate the talk and run the latest examples, you will need the most recent version of GDXRRW (0.2.0) and a version of GAMS at least as recent as 23.9.4.
    • Stefan Vigerske, Michael Bussieck, Steven Dirkse: Advanced Use of GAMS Solver Links The scripts to demonstrate usage of the solvetrace files are available in this zip file. You will need at least GAMS 24.0.2 to generate correct solve trace files.
