Congratulations on taking part in the 2019 INFORMS Student Competition.
This page will help you quickly download, license and get started with Gurobi for use in the competition. If you are looking for the competition overview page on the INFORMS website, you can find it here.
Step One: Download Gurobi
The Gurobi Optimizer is the state-of-the-art math programming solver able to handle all major problem types. The first step to using Gurobi is downloading a copy for yourself. You can do so on our Gurobi Downloads page.
Step Two: Obtain a License
We offer academics the same full-featured, no-size-limit versions of Gurobi that commercial customers use. You can learn more on our Gurobi for Universities page. Get your own free academic license here.
Request Your License
Step Three: Explore
From our Quick Start Guides to our Example Models to the recordings of our Webinars, we have a number of resources available to help you get started with Gurobi. View our online Resources Center to see what is available.
For users of our no-cost academic licenses, we limit support to product installation and licensing questions. If your question is related to product installation or licensing, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage users to answer each others’ questions; Gurobi staff members will monitor the group and answer questions as time permits.
