[DMANET] Special Issue "Scheduling Theory and Algorithms for Sustainable Manufacturing"

*Call for papers**

This Special Issue was initiated at the 10th IFAC triennial conference
MIM 2022 ( concerning the topics
of combinatorial optimization and scheduling and corresponding sessions
and tracks.

Following their presentation at the conference, some authors were
invited to submit an extended version of their work to this Special
Issue. However, the Special Issue is also open to papers that were not
presented at the conference if they are in the scope of the issue.

The aim of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the art
mathematical models and algorithms providing efficient solutions for
practical planning and scheduling issues in sustainable manufacturing
and logistics. Currently, the production and logistics systems for goods
and services are faced with both production cost optimization and
scarcity of resources. Scheduling plays a central role and offers the
possibility to:

* Reduce production waste,
* Manage efficiently and limit the consumption of material resources
and energy,
* use efficiently new energy sources, especially renewable ones.

Potential topics to be addressed in this issue on the contributions of
scheduling theory and algorithm for sustainable manufacturing include,
but are not limited to, the following:

* Consideration of energy constraints in scheduling and planning;
* Green scheduling approaches in Industry 4.0;
* Advanced scheduling and planning algorithms for minimization of waste;
* Contributions of scheduling and planning theory for minimization of
the carbon emissions;
* Multi-objective scheduling problems taking into account the
sustainability criteria.
* Exact and approximate models and methods for sustainable scheduling
and planning;
* Industrial applications of advanced scheduling and planning algorithms.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: *20 June 2023*
