[DMANET] computational optimization

Call for Papers

10th International Workshop on Computational Optimization (WCO17)
Prague, Czech Republic, September 4-7, 2017

FedCSIS - 2017


We invite original contributions related to both theoretical and
practical aspects of optimization methods. The list of topics
includes, but is not limited to:

* combinatorial and continuous global optimization
* unconstrained and constrained optimization
* multiobjective and robust optimization
* optimization in dynamic and/or noisy environments
* optimization on graphs
* large-scale optimization, in parallel and distributed computational
* meta-heuristics for optimization, nature-inspired approaches and any
other derivative-free methods
* exact/heuristic hybrid methods, involving natural computing
techniques and other global and local optimization methods

The applications of interest are included in the list below, but are
not limited to:

* classical operational research problems (knapsack, traveling salesman, etc)
* computational biology and distance geometry
* data mining and knowledge discovery
* human motion simulations; crowd simulations
* industrial applications
* optimization in statistics, econometrics, finance, physics,
chemistry, biology, medicine, and engineering.


Best paper award

The best WCO17 paper will be awarded during the social dinner of FedCSIS2017.
The best paper will be selected by WCO17 co-Chairs by taking into
consideration the scores suggested by the reviewers, as well as the
quality of the given oral presentation.


Submission and Publication

* Authors should submit draft papers in PDF format.
* The total length of a paper should not exceed 10 pages for regular
paper and 4 pages for short papers (IEEE style). IEEE style templates
are available at
* Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their
scientific merit and relevance to the workshop.
* Accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference
Proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore database and submitted for
different indexations (Position paper will only appear in the
conference proceedings).
* Extended versions of selected papers presented at WCO17 will be
published in edited books of the series "Studies of Computational
Intelligence", Springer.
