[DMANET] Call for Papers: EJCO Special Issue on Disaster Risk Management

Call for Papers

With great pleasure we announce a special issue of the EURO Journal on
Computational Optimization about "Computational Optimization in Disaster
Risk Management".

Optimization methods have been playing a successful role in all parts of
disaster risk management (DRM) for natural and man-made disasters,
including preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery. With this
special issue we aim at collecting new modeling approaches and solution
algorithms for DRM. We are looking forward to new, original research in
quantitative methods with direct reference to its practical
applications. The focus of submitted papers should be on the derivation
of new optimization models, their implementation, and computational
experiments with realistic datasets.

Invited topics for this special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Location problems
- Scheduling and logistics problems
- Routing problems
- Traffic control and contraflows
- Algorithms for decision support
- Network optimization
- Multi-objective optimization
- Optimization under uncertainty
- Data aggregation

Following the journal's high standards, we expect high quality
contributions that will undergo the strict reviewing process of EJCO.
Submission deadline is

*March 31, 2015.*
