[DMANET] CFP - Algorithms MDPI - Special Issue on Parallel Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization Problems

Call for Papers

MDPI Algorithms Journal

Special Issue on Parallel Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization Problems
(http://www.mdpi.com/journal/algorithms/special_issues/parallel_algorithms)

Scope

Combinatorial optimization problems model most of the application scenarios
frequently arising in practice. Unfortunately, optimal solutions to these
problems are hard to obtain, with most of them having high computational
complexity. Even in the case of problems admitting polynomial time
solutions, e.g., the classical shortest path problem, the relevant
applications should now work on very large input instances or should cope
with a large number of concurrent users. Thus, faster solution methods are
clearly needed for achieving real time responses for problems previously
considered as easy ones. The same also holds for most heuristic methods or
approximation algorithms that have been proposed for obtaining approximate
solutions for hard optimization problems in acceptable execution times. For
large-scale problems, these techniques are inadequate, and much faster
algorithmic techniques are needed again.

Due to the aforementioned limitations, parallelism has been considered a
means of deriving faster algorithmic solutions. Parallel computation is
virtually ubiquitous nowadays and can be found in all modern computing
platforms. Although the concept of parallel execution is simple, its
application on combinatorial optimization problems is not straightforward,
due to the inherently irregular control flow that the algorithms for this
kind of problem commonly have. In this Special Issue, we solicit
contributions that will propose new methodologies for solving problems in
combinatorial optimization using parallel computation, either in
shared-memory systems (e.g., multi-core/many-core processors, GPUs, etc.) or
in distributed-memory systems (e.g., clusters, cloud architectures, etc.).
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Parallel exact algorithms: e.g., divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming,
etc.

- Parallel approximation algorithms- Parallel fixed parameter algorithms

- Parallel heuristics/metaheuristics for combinatorial optimization
problems: e.g., local search, simulated annealing, evolutionary computation,
swarm intelligence computation, etc.

- Parallel techniques in integer linear programming: e.g., parallelization
of branch-and-bound, column generation, and cutting plane methods or their
combinations (i.e., branch-and-cut or branch-and-price).

- Parallel algorithms for multi-objective optimization problems.

[DMANET] Open position at ONERA (France)

===================================================================
Permanent research position on NoC and Embedded networks
===================================================================


ONERA (Office National d'Etudes et Recherches Aérospatiales) is the
French national aerospace research center. It is a public research
establishment, with eight major facilities in France and about 2,000
employees, including 1,500 scientists, engineers and technicians.

The position is opened in the LAPS group (Langages, Architectures et
Proofs for embbeded Systems) in the Modeling and Information
Processing Department (DTIM), to do research in the evaluation of
Network on Chip (NoC) and networks, embedded in aircrafts,
spacecrafts, UAVs....

The core of the work consists in researching new methods for mastering
time predictability and deterministic execution of critical
applications in embedded systems. One major evolution in these systems
is the shift from buses to networks, to interconnect either computers
or CPUs inside a chip. This new paradigm changes the way to control
the communication time. It requires a fine understanding of the NoC
behaviour, and its interactions with other chip components and
executed code.

Since aircrafts must, in general, pass a certification process, the
evaluation of network traversal time is commonly done using formal
methods. But some experimentation and measurements also give
complementary expertise. The knowledge gained from these studies can
be used to define new communication mechanisms and architectures, as
well as design rules, for embedded distributed systems

The research activity will consist of:
- the evaluation of the worst case communication performance (for NoCs
and embedded networks) ;
- design of mechanisms and protocols ensuring the applications
requirements (response time, safety...) ;
- implementation or prototyping, either on real systems or by
simulation.

----------------------------------
Required skills and qualifications
----------------------------------

PhD in computer science, with some background in networking, and some
publications related to NoC. Appetite for experimentation. Aware of
aeronautical industrial requirements.

Competences in one or several of the following techniques is required:
- formal worst case communication evaluation methods (network
calculus, real-time calculus, event stream, trajectorial approaches,
etc.);
- multi- and many-core architectures, and especially NoCs;
- embedded networks;
- simulation framework for real-time systems;
- programming (C, C++, Java...) ;
- formal methods.

Applicants must have a good English level, French is not a
requirement as long as English is OK.

---------------------
Application process:
---------------------

The reference to indicate in all application documents is
TIS/DTIM/LAPS/CDI//2224.

Applicants must upload their CV and motivation letter through the
ONERA website at http://www.onera.fr/fr/rejoindre-onera/offres-emploi
to the offer "INGENIEUR DE RECHERCHE RESEAUX SUR PUCE ET EMBARQUES"

Submissions

Papers are to be submitted electronically through Easychair at the
following link
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opodis2016. Submissions must be
in English in pdf format and
they must be prepared using the LaTeX style templates for LIPIcs
(https://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics/instructions-for-authors/)
and choosing the A4 paper option. A
submission must not exceed 16 pages, including the cover page, figures,
tables and references. The cover
page should include the title of the paper, the authors' names,
affiliations and e-mails, an abstract,
information about the contact author, and a list of keywords.

Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix or as
supplementary material which will
be read at the discretion of the reviewers. Submissions are expected to
be intelligible and complete
without such additional details.

A submission must report on original research that has not previously
appeared in a journal or conference
with published proceedings. It should not be concurrently submitted to
such a journal or conference. Any
overlap with a published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly
indicated. The Program Chairs
reserve the right to reject submissions that are out of scope, or of
clearly inferior quality, or that violate
the submission guidelines. Each of the remaining papers will undergo a
thorough reviewing process.


Publication

OPODIS has post-proceedings published by Leibniz International
Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) in
gold open access mode. The proceedings become available online, free of
charge, after the conference.
Preliminary versions of the proceedings will be available to
participants at the conference electronically.
The camera-ready version of a paper must have the same format and be of
the same length as its
submitted version. Extended and revised versions of selected papers will
be considered for a special issue
of Theoretical Computer Science (Elsevier).


Best Paper Award

OPODIS features a best paper award. All accepted papers will be
evaluated for the best paper award. The
best paper award aims to encourage work that combines theory and
practice and demonstrates excellence
of research in at least one of these two areas. Such work could be an
advance in theory that sheds lights
on an interesting system problem or an advance in system work that
builds upon strong theoretical results
