[DMANET] ECCO 2016 conference

EURO Working Group on Combinatorial Optimization

The 29th Conference of the European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization
May 26-28, 2016.

Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary


The 29th Conference of the European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization will be jointly organized by the Institute of Computer Science and Control of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, Hungary on May 26 - 28, 2016. ECCO (European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization) is a working group of EURO (Association of European Operational Research Societies) that provides an excellent opportunity to discuss recent and important issues in Combinatorial Optimization and its applications.

The ECCO annual meetings aim to bring together researchers in the field of Combinatorial Optimization to present their work, share experiences, and discuss recent advances in theory and applications. The primary objectives are:
*exchanging results and experiences in solving real-world combinatorial optimization problems
*reporting on development and implementation of appropriate models and efficient solution methods for combinatorial optimization problems
*establishing networking contacts between individuals and research groups working on related topics
*promoting the work on combinatorial optimization (theory and applications) to the broader scientific community
*identifying challenging research problems for the field, as well as promising research outlets (both in theory and applications)
*promoting interactions with researchers in other related fields

We seek submissions in all areas of combinatorial optimization from theory through applications.

The submission is limited to a half to one page abstract.
