[DMANET] CFP for Matheuristic Session on ALIO/EURO Workshop (Corrected Version)

Matheuritics Session

VII ALIO/EURO Workshop on Applied Combinatorial Optimization

Porto, Portugal, May 4 - 6, 2011


In the framework of the seventh conference on Combinatorial Optimization
jointly organized by the Association of Latin-Iberoamerican Operational
Research Societies (ALIO) and the Association of European Operational
Research Societies (EURO), we are soliciting submissions to the special
session on Matheuristics.

Topics of interest include:

* Model-based metaheuristics

* Dual information and metaheuristics

* Decompositions and lower/upper bounds in metaheuristic codes

* Stochastic programming and heuristic search

* MIP solvers as search components (local branching, RINS, ...)

* Hybridizing heuristics and exact methods

* Upper and lower bounds interacting evolutions

* Real world case histories of successful metaheuristic

Important Dates

January 31, 2011 - Deadline for Abstract Submission.

February 28, 2011 - Notification of acceptance.

March 14, 2011 - Deadline for early registration and authors

May 4-6, 2011 - VII ALIO/EURO Workshop.

Abstract Submission

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of 2 to 4 pages on
A4-size paper. Please use the conference LaTeX template to prepare your
abstract. Authors not familiar with LaTeX can use LyX. If you choose to

Extended abstract submission ends on January 31st, 2011. Notification of
acceptance will be done by February 28th, 2011.

For submitting, send the extended abstract in pdf or doc format to
