Special Issue: New Trends of Combinatorial Optimization and Applications

We invite submissions of novel research articles for a forthcoming special issue of Annals of Operations Research on New Trends of Combinatorial Optimization and Applications. This special issue is open to all papers in this area. We would like to encourage, in particular, the participants of the international conference of the Tunisian Operational Research Society (TORS) that was held in Sousse, Tunisia, November 1–3, 2022 (https://torsconference.wixsite.com/tors22) to submit extended versions of their papers presented in the conference. Contributions arising from papers given at a conference should be substantially extended, and should cite the conference paper where appropriate.

High quality research papers are solicited to address theoretical as well as practical

issues of recent applications of Combinatorial Optimization. Topics of interest include,

but are not limited to

Approximation algorithms

Cutting plane algorithms

Local search algorithms

Computational complexity

Graph and network algorithms

Linear and nonlinear (mixed-) integer programming

Examples of applications

Telecommunication and Transportation, Scheduling, Logistics, Timetabling, Supply Chain Management, Portfolio Optimization, Covering and Packing, Data Mining, Lot-Sizing, Facility Location, Machine Learning, Renewable Energy, Sustainability, etc.

Instructions for authors can be found at


Authors should submit a cover letter and a manuscript by March 30, 2023 via the Journal's online submission site. Please see the Author Instructions on the web site if you have not yet submitted a paper through Springer's web-based system, Editorial Manager.
