Hull © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2017 With the appearance of the June 2017 issue (Vol. 173, No. 3), the Journal of Optimiza- tion Theory and Applications has been in print for 50 years. The journal was founded by Angelo Miele of Rice University, now deceased. He served as its editor for 43 years and retired at the end of 2009. At that time, the editorship was transferred to Franco Giannessi, University of Pisa, and David Hull, University of Texas. The first issue of JOTA (July 1967 or Vol. 1, No. 1) had 85 pages (5 papers), and by 2010 the size of each issue had increased to 200 pages (12 papers).
