[DMANET] EURO 2016 Stream on Discrete Optimization under Uncertainty

*** Inivitation to submit an abstract at EURO 2016 ***

At EURO 2016 - the 28th European Conference on Operational Research - I am organizing a stream on

Discrete Optimization under Uncertainty

In recent years, optimization under uncertainty, or robust optimization, is an ermerging field of research within the OR community. In particular for discrete optimization problems, it is worth to investigate different robustness concepts, uncertainty sets, and algorithmic ideas for both classical combinatorial optimization problems and novel applications. In this stream, it is intended to have sessions focussing on these developments, providing a forum of knowledge exchange for those working in the field and those interested in entering this exciting research area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
- theory of robust integer programming
- complexity results for classical discrete optimization problems w.r.t. novel uncertainty sets
- robustness concepts like light robustness, recoverable robustness, etc.
- two-stage robustness
- applications of robust optimization, e.g., network design or energy system planning

If you would like to contribute to this stream by submitting an abstract
for oral presentation, please use submission code d9983646 at or contact me by email to

EURO 2016 ( ) is organized July 3-6, 2016
in Poznan (Poland).
