Call for papers for a
special issue of Mathematical Programming, Series B, on

Lifts of Convex Sets in Optimization

(edited by V. Kaibel (U Magdeburg) & R. R. Thomas (U Washington)

Lifts/extended formulations/cone representations of convex sets currently form
an active area of research in optimization, computer science, real algebraic
geometry and convex geometry. We invite high quality papers on all optimization
related aspects of this topic for a special issue of Mathematical Programming,
Series B. All submitted papers will be refereed according to the standards of
Mathematical Programming, Series A.

Deadline for paper submissions: May 31, 2013
