[DMANET] 2nd Call for Papers for IPCO 2016

2nd Call for Papers for the Eighteenth
Conference on Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization
IPCO XVIII, June 1-3, 2016
to be held at University of Liège in Liège, Belgium.

Submission deadline : November 20, 2015 (23:59 CET)

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.

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of their recent work by November 20, 2015 (23:59 CET); see the submission guidelines for more information. The Program Committee will select the papers to be presented on the basis of the submitted extended abstracts. Contributions are expected to be original, unpublished and not submitted to journals or conferences with proceedings before the notification date (January 31, 2016). Papers violating these requirements will not be considered by the Program Committee.

During the conference, approximately 33 papers will be presented in single-track sessions. Each lecture will be 30 minutes long. The proceedings will be published as a volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science. They will contain extended abstracts of all accepted submissions. Each participant will receive a copy of the proceedings at the conference. It is expected that revised and extended versions will subsequently be submitted for publication in appropriate journals. In particular, there will be a special issue of Mathematical Programming B associated with IPCO 2016.

More information can be found on the conference webpage.
