3nd Workshop on Computational Optimization (WCO 2010)
Wisla, Poland, October 18-20, 2010

in the framework of IMCSIT 2010 - International Multiconference
on Computer Science and Information Technology


We invite original contributions related with both theoretical and practical aspects of optimization methods. The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

- unconstrained and constrained optimization
- combinatorial optimization
- global optimization
- multiobjective and multimodal optimization
- dynamic and noisy optimization
- large scale optimization
- parallel and distributed approaches in optimization
- random search algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search and other derivative free optimization methods
- interval methods
- nature inspired optimization methods (evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimization, particle swarm optimization, immune artificial systems etc)
- hybrid optimization algorithms involving natural computing techniques and other global and local optimization methods
- memetic algorithms
- optimization methods for learning processes and data mining
- computational optimization methods in statistics, econometrics, finance, physics, medicine, biology, engineering etc.
