[DMANET] (Deadline extention) CFP, Special Issue MPB (ISCO 2012)


(Apologies in advance for multiple postings)


Special Issue on Combinatorial Optimization

We invite submissions of novel research articles for a forthcoming issue
of Mathematical Programming B on Combinatorial Optimization.

This special issue is associated with the International Symposium on
Combinatorial Optimization (ISCO 2012) that was held in Athens, Greece,
April 19-21, 2012.
However it is also open to papers which have not been presented at the

High quality research papers are solicited to address theoretical as
well as practical issues of Combinatorial Optimization.
Topics of interest include, but are notlimited to:

Approximation algorithms
Cutting planes algorithms
Polyhedral combinatorics
Branch-and-cut-and-price algorithms
Graph and network algorithms
Linear and nonlinear (mixed-) integer programming
Randomized algorithms
Scheduling algorithms

The deadline for submission of full papers is extended to October 21, 2012.
We aim at completing a first review of all papers by January 31, 2012.

For their submissions, the authors should follow the following steps
in the Editorial Manager at

Register in Editorial Manager
Click on 'Submit A Manuscript' button at the top of the site
Click on 'Submit New Manuscript' in Author Main Menu
Select Full Length Paper Series B as article type and follow the next steps
Type in the name of the special issue at the Additional Information step
and follow the next steps.
The name of the special issue is Combinatorial Optimization.
Approve your manuscript.

Papers will be refereed to the standard of Mathematical Programming,
Series A. Due to limits in page volume, we are requesting that all papers
be submitted using MP style files, and conform to the 25 page maximum.
The necessary LaTeX files can be downloaded at"

The special issue will be limited to around 9 papers. We therefore may
be obliged to either return some papers to authors without review or,
later, with authors' consent, transfer some papers to MPA.

Additional information about the special issue can be obtained from the
guest editors.
