[DMANET] Call for papers : special issue of EURO Journal on Computational Optimization on Nonlinear and Combinatorial Methods for Energy Optimization

Dear colleagues,

Following the recent successful "Workshop on Mathematical Models and
Methods for Energy Optimization (CWM^3EO)"


of the EU COST-Action TD1207 on "Mathematical Optimization in the Decision
Support Systems for Efficient and Robust Energy Networks (ICT)"


and in anticipation of the forthcoming PGMO-COST "Workshop on Validation
and Software"


we are glad to announce a special issue of the journal EURO Journal on
Computational Optimization (EJCO) about "Nonlinear and Combinatorial
Methods for Energy Optimization".

Energy optimization is among the biggest challenges of our time, since
energy is a scarce resource whose efficient production and fair
distribution is associated with many technical, economical, political and
ethical issues like environmental protection and people health.
Optimization problems arise at different levels: planning, production,
transmission, distribution, maintenance, only to mention a few.

We are looking for papers related to the themes of optimization methods
applied to the energy optimization context. Topics of interest include but
are not limited to:
- Energy markets
- Unit commitment
- Economic dispatch
- Nuclear reactors outage
- Infrastructure planning
- Energy distribution
- Smart grid optimization
- Integration of renewables
- Nonlinear and discrete methods for energy related challenges

All interested researchers are invited to submit by January 31, 2015 high
quality contributions to the website

In order to submit a paper for a Special Issue,

1. Log on the editorial manager using the Author Login.

2. Select Submit New Manuscript in the main menu.

3. In the drop down list associated with Choose Article Type, select the
desired special issue ("SI: Nonlinear and Combinatorial Methods for Energy
Optimization"). Note that the entries corresponding to the special issues
start with SI.

Looking forward to receiving your contributions.
