The International Transactions in Operational Research (ITOR) journal
(Wiley) will publish a special issue dedicated to the "Many Faces of
Distances" workshop, organized at IMECC, University of Campinas, in
October 2014.

The aim of this issue is to bring together contributions in
multidisciplinary fields, considering mathematical and computational
problems related to the concept of distance arising from different
areas of knowledge and applications. The topics of interest are
theory, algorithms, and applications of the concept of distance
related, but not limited, to the following areas:
- Astronomy;
- Big data;
- Coding theory;
- Computer networks;
- Data visualization;
- Geometric structures;
- Graph theory;
- Molecular structure;
- Nanostructures;
- Pattern recognition;
- Psychology;
- Robotics;
- Statistics;
- Theory of Distance Geometry.

Although we strongly encourage the submission of papers presented at
the workshop on "Many Faces of Distances", this Call for Papers is
also open to the entire community of academics and practitioners in
Operations Research and in the the above areas.

All papers will be peer-reviewed according to the editorial policy of
ITOR (http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/118505725/home),
published by the International Federation of Operational Research
Societies (IFORS). Papers should be original, unpublished, and not
currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. They should
be prepared according to the instructions to authors that can be found
on the journal's homepage. Authors should upload their contributions
using the submission site http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/itor,
indicating in their cover letter that the paper is intended for this
special issue. The deadline for submissions is February 28,
2015. Other inquiries should be sent directly to any of the Guest
