Call for papers*

You are invited to submit short papers (extended abstracts) (6 to 8 pages) describing their current research in Combinatorial Optimization.
This can be related to recent developments in theory, computational studies, application settings or a combination of these.

A paper submitted at this conference is expected to be original research not previously published. All the papers will be peer reviewed.
The accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings.

The proceedings will be published in the in Electronic Notes on Discrete Mathematics. <>

For submission, please follow the link indicated on the web site.
You are also invited to organize sessions on special topics, for this please send an email to <>

A selection of papers will be published in special issues of

Discrete Applied Mathematics (DAM)

Journal of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (JMMA)


For registration please follow the following link.

*Spring** **School***

A spring school on "Cutting plane methods in integer and combinatorial optimization" will be organized before the conference
22-23 March, 2010.
