Contributions *** UPDATED! ***
Contributions in any area listed below are welcome. Participants are invited to deliver a 20-minute talk by submitting an abstract of their talk. All abstracts will be refereed and acceptance depends on the reviewers’ feedback. The accepted abstracts will be published in a Conference Booklet of Abstracts.
Abstracts must be prepared using the LaTeX template provided. Both the TEX and the PDF files should be submitted by e-mail on [email protected]. Abstracts will be received between 17th December 2018 and 17th March 2019 and acceptance will be communicated to the author by 14th April 2019.
The template can be downloaded from here.
Aims and Objectives
The ECCO annual meetings aim to bring together researchers in the field of Combinatorial Optimization to present their work, share experiences, and discuss recent advances in theory and applications. The primary objectives are:
- exchanging results and experiences in solving real-world combinatorial optimization problems
- reporting on development and implementation of appropriate models and efficient solution methods for combinatorial optimization problems
- establishing networking contacts between individuals and research groups working on related topics
- promoting the work on combinatorial optimization (theory and applications) to the broader scientific community
- identifying challenging research problems for the field, as well as promising research outlets (both in theory and applications)
- promoting interactions with researchers in other related fields
Topics of Interest
- theory and applications of combinatorial optimization
- exact solution algorithms, approximation algorithms, heuristics, and meta-heuristics for combinatorial optimization problems
- integer programming, global optimization, stochastic integer programming, multi-objective programming, graph theory and network flows
- application areas include logistics and supply chain optimization, manufacturing, energy production and distribution, land consolidation, telecommunications, bio-informatics, finance, discrete tomography, discrete and hybrid dynamical systems, and other fields
A special issue of an international refereed journal will be dedicated to ECCO 2019. The issue will be based on contributions presented at ECCO XXXII, but the invitation to submit will be extended to all ECCO members. All articles will be thoroughly refereed according to the high standards of such journals.
