[DMANET] ISCO 2018, deadline extended

Due to the pressing requests of many contributors, we extend the deadline for submission
to ISCO 2018 to January 29, 2018.

ISCO 2018
Submissions are open
New Deadline: January 29.

5th International Symposium on Combinatorial Optimization (ISCO 2018)
April 11-13, 2018 - Marrakesh - Morocco
[+Spring School on "Advanced MIP Formulations and Computations"
on April 9- 10, 2018]

ISCO is a biennial symposium whose aim is to bring together researchers from all the
communities related to combinatorial optimization, including algorithms and complexity,
mathematical programming and operations research. It is intended to be a forum for
presenting original research in these areas and especially in their intersections.
Quality papers on all aspects of combinatorial optimization, from mathematical
foundations and theory of algorithms to computational studies and
practical applications, are solicited.

The conference is organized into plenary and parallel sessions. The conference languages
is English. Each speaker can give only one talk. Proposals for invited sessions
are welcome. Researchers who are interested in organizing an invited session should
contact Ridha Mahjoub (ridha.mahjoub@)lamsade.dauphine.fr).

ISCO 2018 will be preceded by a spring school on "Advanced MIP Formulations and
Computations". Juan Pablo Vielma and Joey Huchette from MIT will give 16 hours of
lectures on April 9 and 10, 2018.

Papers presenting original unpublished results in all areas of combinatorial optimization
and its applications are welcome. The submission deadline is January 10, 2018.
Simultaneous submissions to other conferences with published proceedings or journals
are not allowed.
Two types of submissions:
Regular papers with up to 12 pages
Accepted regular papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series in a post-conference proceedings volume. The authors will
have to prepare their camera-ready version two weeks after the end of ISCO 2018.
Short papers up to 2 pages. Accepted short papers will be included in a volume
of local proceedings. More information about the submission procedure is available
on the website of the conference.

A special issue of the journal Discrete Applied Mathematics will be dedicated to ISCO 2018.
