Call for Participation
in the
17th Conference on
Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization
Bonn, Germany

Poster submission deadline: March 31, 2014
Early registration deadline: April 20, 2014
Summer school: June 20-22, 2014
IPCO Conference: June 23-25, 2014

Website for additional details and registration:


The IPCO conference is a forum for researchers and practitioners working on various aspects of integer programming and combinatorial optimization. The aim is to present recent developments in theory, computation, and applications. The scope of IPCO is viewed in a broad sense, to include algorithmic and structural results in integer programming and combinatorial optimization as well as revealing computational studies and novel applications of discrete optimization to practical problems.


Summer School:
The following distinguished lecturers will give two 90-minute lectures each (see the website for abstracts):

Gérard Cornuéjols (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh): Cut-generating functions in integer programming
András Frank (Eötvös University, Budapest): Constructive characterizations
Thomas Rothvoß (University of Washington, Seattle): Extended formulations
David Shmoys (Cornell University, Ithaca): t.b.a.


IPCO conference:

34 papers, selected by the program committee (chaired by Jon Lee), will be presented in single-track sessions.
The detailed program is online now.
Each participant will receive a copy of the proceedings (Springer LNCS) at the conference.


Poster session:

We plan a poster session at the welcome reception on June 22.
If you want to present a poster, submit title and abstract before March 31.
Acceptance notifications will be sent a few days later.
