[DMANET] Joint EURO/ORSC/ECCO Conference 2017 -- Last CFP

Please, see the attached last CFP for a Joint EURO/ORSC/ECCO Conference
2017 in Combinatorial Optimization. Note also, that the registration is
now open (https://ecco2017.euro-online.org/en/registration). We also
advise you to hurry with booking the hotel as the conference follows May
1st break and there can be quite some demand on the rooms.

All the best and CU in Koper!

Call for Papers

Joint EURO/ORSC/ECCO Conference 2017 on Combinatorial Optimization
(ECCO XXX)

Koper, Slovenia, May 3rd - 6th, 2017
http://ecco2017.euro-online.org
mailto:ecco-xxx@iam.upr.si

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


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
are:
- 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
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


Scope and Topics
----------------

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

- 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
flows
- 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:

https://www.euro-online.org/conf/ecco2017/

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
conference.


Important dates
---------------

Abstract submission starts: December 1st, 2016
Abstract submission closes: March 1st, 2017
Notification of acceptance: March 19th, 2017
Deadline for early registration: April 1st, 2017
Conference: May 3rd-6th, 2017
