[DMANET] Special issue of EJCO on Bilevel Optimisation - Call for papers

Special issue of the EURO Journal on Computational Optimization on Bilevel Optimization

Bilevel Programming is a fairly recent branch of optimization that deals with programs whose constraints embed an auxiliary optimization problem. Bilevel programs are pervasive and are commonly found in a number of real-world problems. This includes problems in the domains of transportation, energy, economics, decision science, environmental economics, etc. Efficient exact or approximate solution algorithms for such problems must exploit the structure of the problems at hand.

The aim of the special issue is to invite high-quality manuscripts addressing bilevel optimization problems and presenting convincing numerical results.

Possible topics include, but are not restricted to:

• Linear, convex, nonlinear, mixed integer bilevel optimization

• Equilibrium problems

• Stackelberg games

• Energy applications

• Transportation and location applications

• Pricing problems

• Interdiction and fortification problems.

Following the journal high standards, we expect high quality contributions that will undergo the strict reviewing process of EJCO.

Submission deadline is September 30, 2018.

In order to submit a paper for the special issue,

1. Log on the editorial manager using the <Author Login> via the website

2. Select <Submit New Manuscript> in the main menu.

3. In the drop down list associated with <Choose Article Type> select the desired special issue

(« SI: Bilevel Optimisation »). Note that all entries corresponding to the special issues start with SI.

We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.
