Contributed Talks

Special Issue *** DEADLINE EXTENDED! ***

A special issue of the Journal of Combinatorial Optimization 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. The submission process is now open and the deadline for submissions has been extended to 15 January 2020. Further details can be found here.



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]. The period for submissions of abstracts is now closed. Acceptance has been communicated to all the authors.

The final list of the titles of the contributed talks can be viewed here.

The Conference Booklet of Abstracts can be found here.
