[DMANET] Call for Papers: EURO Special Issue in Optimization

Optimization: A Journal of Mathematical Programming and Operations Research
Call for Papers

Special Issue: Making an Impact with Optimization
Deadline: 31 October 2015

On the occasion of the 27th European Conference on Operational Research, EURO XXVII, which takes place on July 12-15, 2015, in Glasgow, the journal Optimization invites you to submit high quality original research papers to a special issue on Optimization models and techniques for making an impact, corresponding to a major theme of EURO XXVII.

The special issue focuses primarily on papers developing new optimization models, modeling features and/or solution techniques that were driven by the need of a partiular application, as well as showing the impact these models and algorithms had for the application.

Techniques can be drawn from all areas of optimization, including:
- linear programming
- semidefinite and conic programming
- semi-infinite programming
- stochastic programming
- global optimization
- nonlinear and nonsmooth optimization
- multiobjective optimization
- robust optimization
- integer and mixed-integer programming
- mixed-integer non-linear programming
- game theory
- dynamic optimization and stochastic control

In order to publish in Optimization, a strong theoretical contribution of the submitted paper is required.

Optimization is abstracted and indexed in the following databases: Astrophysics Data System, SciBase, British Library Inside, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, EBSCO Databases, ISI Current Contents, Physical, Chemical and Earth Sciences, Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet, New Jour, Science Citation Index Expanded, Zentralblatt MATH/Mathematics Abstracts and Zetoc.

Guest Editors: Dr. Kerem Akartunali, Dr. Marco Laumanns, Prof. Dr. Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber

Important Dates: Submission deadline of full papers: October 31, 2015.

Submission Instructions
Participants of EURO XXVII are cordially invited to submit high quality original research papers. Please note that only contributions of registered participants can be accepted. The format of manuscripts for Optimization as well as guidelines and templates can be found on the journal's webpage. Each manuscript has to be submitted via the online submission system: Detailed instructions are provided during the submission process.

During the submission process authors have to answer the question 'Is the manuscript a candidate for a special issue?' Please tick 'yes' and select EURO 2015 from the list.
