Professional Service. Before retirement in 2008 I have routinely participate in organizing sessions and workshops for meetings, refereeing papers and proposals, and editing special issues of journals. Below are specific services I have given to particular organizations.

Biomedical Research Institutions Information Technology Exchange (BRIITE). I served on the Steering Committee 2001-3 and hosted the Spring 2002 meeting, which had the theme: Research in a Regulated Environment.

Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), formerly the Operations Research Society of America (ORSA). I first joined ORSA as a student in 1966. In 1968 I was associate program chairman for the ORSA semi-annual meeting. In 1975 I was program chairman for the ORSA/TIMS semi-annual meeting, and I was co-chairman (with Fred Murphy and Susan Shaw) in 1981. I was a co-founder of the Computer Science Special Interest Group and its second Chairman. I led its becoming a Technical Section, and in 1984 I served a second term as its Chairman. In 1985, I organized the first CSTS symposium on The Impacts of Microcomputers on Operations Research, hosted by the University of Colorado at Denver. I have served on the planning committees for each one since then (every two years). In 1978 I was the ORSA liaison to the Mathematical Programming Society, and I served on the Long Range Planning Committee. I was a Visiting Lecturer in the ORSA/TIMS program (1977-1989), and I have served on ad hoc committees. In 1974 I co-edited a special issue of Operations Research on the interfaces with computer sciences, and I later joined the editorial board as an associate editor (1979-1983). I was the founding editor of ORSA Journal on Computing (1987- 92), which covers the interfaces between operations research and computer science, and I subsequently served as an Advisory Editor. In 1990, I served on the Lanchester Prize Committee. In 2003-4 I was the organizer for Tutorials/Plenary/Keynote speakers for the Denver INFORMS meeting (2004). In 2005 I founded the TutORials in Operations Research series and served as its first Editor.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). I have given presentations over the years. In 1999 I gave a Short Course in the SIOPT meeting that preceded the general SIAM meeting.

Mathematical Programming Society. I co-founded the Committee On Algorithms (COAL) and was its third Chairman. I helped establish guidelines for algorithm testing, and I co-organized an international conference, Design and Implementation of Optimization Software, co-sponsored by NATO, in 1978.

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). I was Secretary for the ACM Special Interest Group in Mathematical Programming (SIGMAP), and I organized their only international conference, co-sponsored by National Bureau of Standards, in 1976. I have served as associate editor for the Transactions On Mathematical Software (1977-1980), and as OR/MS Department Editor for Communications of ACM (1980-87).

National. I have served on a variety of NSF Panels, notably Graduate Research Fellowship (2004); ITR panel for Large proposal (2002); CCLI (1999); and, an IGERT onsite visit and review (2002). In 1987, I served on the Fellowship Evaluation Committee for the National Research Council and the National Academy of Sciences to determine fellowships given to U.S. graduate students. I was a U.S. member of three NATO planning committees: an ARI on optimization software (1978), an ARI on energy modeling and analysis (1980), and an ASI on decision support modeling (1987).

University Service. At Southern Methodist University I served on the Curriculum Committee, Admissions Committee, and Ph.D. Proposal Committee, which successfully instituted a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Operations Research. I also served on various ad hoc committees convened by the Dean of Engineering. I chaired the Engineering Administration Committee, formed to supervise and plan a special program leading to a Master of Science in Engineering Administration. I also formed undergraduate student forums to stimulate self-initiated study by students and acquaint them with research.

At VPI, I administered the Northern Virginia off-campus graduate program in Computer Science. Working closely with the Blacksburg faculty, I developed viable programs of study, hired adjunct faculty from the D.C. technical community, and expanded enrollments through promotional efforts.

At CU-Denver I was Director of the Mathematics Clinic (1985-1989), which is a program that arranges cooperative problem-solving efforts with institutions, faculty and students. In this capacity I brought financial and technical support to the Mathematics Department from companies and government agencies. I have served on numerous standing and ad hoc committees for the Mathematics Department, for the College of Arts and Sciences, and for the Denver campus. During 1983-85, I chaired the Ph.D. proposal committee, resulting in successful initiation of a multi-disciplinary graduate program leading to a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics with options in computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, engineering mathematics, operations research, probability, and statistics. I was a founding member of the Computational Mathematics Group (now the Center for Computational Mathematics), formed to promote research and special program development. I was the Denver campus representative to the Colorado Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and I was a founding member of the Center of Applied Artificial Intelligence, when it was based in the Graduate School of Business at CU-Boulder. I was the Department web supervisor, and I had designed The Use of the Web for Teaching Mathematics. In 1997 I was elected to the campus Retention, Tenure and Promotion (RTP) Committee, and I served as its Chair, 1999-2001. In 2004-06, I was elected to the College RTP Committee (Dean's Advisory). I was founding Director of the CU Center for Computational Biology, which fostered research and education collaborations among faculty, students, and company sponsors. Directly related to being the CCB Director, I served on several CU taskforces to build bioinformatics programs at CU.
