[Mycolleagues] CFP: Joint EURO/ORSC/ECCO Conference 2017 on Combinatorial Optimization -- ECCO XXX

Call for Papers

Joint EURO/ORSC/ECCO Conference 2017 on Combinatorial Optimization

Koper, Slovenia, May 3rd - 6th, 2017

The conference is jointly organized by EURO and ORSC. For more
details, please, visit the conference site as the information is added

Aims and objectives

The joint conference aims to bring together researchers, in
particularly from Europe and China, in the field of Combinatorial
Optimization to present their work, share experiences, and discuss
recent advances in theory and applications. The primary objectives
- exchanging results and experiences in solving real-world
combinatorial optimization problems
- strengthen the collaboration between researchers in Combinatorial
Optimization from Europe and China
- reporting on development and implementation of appropriate models
and efficient solution methods for combinatorial optimization
- 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

Scope and Topics

We seek submissions in all areas of combinatorial optimization from
theory through applications. Suggested, but not exclusive, topics

- theory and applications of combinatorial optimization
- exact solution algorithms, approximation algorithms, heuristics, and
meta-heuristics for combinatorial optimization problems
- integer programming, global optimization, stochastic integer
programming, multi-objective programming, graph theory and network
- application areas include logistics and supply chain optimization
manufacturing, energy production and distribution, land
consolidation telecommunications, bioinformatics, finance, discrete
tomography, discrete and hybrid dynamical systems, and other fields

Abstract submission

Only electronic submissions will be accepted (in pdf format), via EURO
online system:

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

Two special issues (Journal of the Operations Research Society of
China, snd Discrete Applied Mathematics) will be dedicated to the

Important dates
