IJOR 2014 : CALL FOR PAPERS: A special issue of the International Journal of Operational Research on « Modeling and Applied Optimization in Business and Engineering »
Call For Papers
Current activities in engineering and business involves making a series of decisions. These decisions are made by looking at the relevant data and using appropriate models. Nowadays companies are facing highly complex problems with important consequences. Therefore, these companies became aware of the importance of using mathematical models for decision making.
This special issue aims to collect recent original contributions related to developing good mathematical/optimization models for decision problems in Engineering and Business.
The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected manuscripts presented at International Conference on Modeling, Simulation and Applied Optimization (ICMSAO’2013), Hammamet, Tunisia, April 28-30, 2013 (see http://www.icmsao.org).
We encourage researchers who cannot participate in the conference to submit papers for this special issue. All papers are refereed through a peer review process. All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please read the journal information on preparing and submitting papers.
Theoretical and/or empirical contributions that make a significant contribution to this field are welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Analytical and Stochastic Modeling Techniques and Applications
- Application of Modeling in Engineering and Business
- Applied Optimization in Engineering and Business
- Combinatorial Optimization in Engineering and Business
- Discrete Event Modeling
- Mathematical Modeling and Application
- Multiple objective Optimization
- Statistical and Probabilistic Modeling
- Uncertainty and fuzziness in Engineering and Business decisions
Notes for Prospective Authors
