[DMANET] Special Issue of Discrete Optimization (ISCO 2014)

(Apologies in advance for multiple postings)


Special Issue of Discrete Optimization
on Combinatorial Optimization

We invite submissions of novel research articles for a forthcoming issue
of Discrete Optimization on Combinatorial Optimization.

This special issue is associated with the International Symposium on
Combinatorial Optimization (ISCO 2014) that was held in Lisbon, Portugal, March 5-7, 2014.
However it is also open to papers which have not been presented at the conference.

High quality research papers are solicited to address theoretical as
well as practical issues of Combinatorial Optimization.
Topics of interest include, but are notlimited to:

Approximation algorithms
Cutting-plane algorithms
Polyhedral combinatorics
Branch-and-cut-and-price algorithms
Graph and network algorithms
Linear and nonlinear (mixed-) integer programming
Computational complexity
Computational geometry
Randomized algorithms
Scheduling algorithms
Interior point methods

The deadline for submission of full papers is July 31, 2014.
We aim at completing a first review of all papers by January 31, 2015.

For their submissions, the authors can send their contributions to one of the Guest Editors.
Only electronic submissions in the form of pdf files will be accepted.
All submissions will be refereed according to the standad of the journal.
The special issue will be set up if there will be sufficiently high-quality submissions to it.

Information about Discrete Optimization including author instructions is available at
Additional information about the special issue can be obtained from the
Guest Editors.
