Call For Papers


7th Workshop on Computational Optimization (WCO'14)

Warsaw, Poland, September 7-10, 2014


We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper to WCO 2014 - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2014).

FedCSIS is an annual international multi-conference organized by the Polish Information Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation with the IEEE Region 8, IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Poland Section Computer Society Chapter, IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section Computer Society Chapter, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, ACM Lodz Chapter, International Federation for Information Processing, European Alliance for Innovation, Informatics Europe, IEEE-CIS Poland Section Chapter, Asociación de Técnicos de Informática, Committee of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Society for Business Informatics, Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications, Polish Chamber of Commerce for High Technology and Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster ICT.

Many real world problems arising in engineering, economics, medicine and other domains can be formulated as optimization tasks. These problems are frequently characterized by non-convex, non-differentiable, discontinuous, noisy or dynamic objective functions and constraints which ask for adequate computational methods.
The aim of this workshop is to stimulate the communication between researchers working on different fields of optimization and practitioners who need reliable and efficient computational optimization methods.
We invite original contributions related to both theoretical and practical aspects of optimization methods.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
- unconstrained and constrained optimization
- combinatorial optimization
- global optimization
- multiobjective optimization
- optimization in dynamic and/or noisy environments
- large scale optimization
- parallel and distributed approaches in optimization
- random search algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search and other derivative free optimization methods
- nature inspired optimization methods (evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimization, particle swarm optimization, immune artificial systems etc)
- hybrid optimization algorithms involving natural computing techniques and other global and local optimization methods
- optimization methods for learning processes and data mining
- computational optimization methods in statistics, econometrics, finance, physics, medicine, biology, engineering etc


Papers should be submitted by April 23, 2014 (strict deadline). Preprints will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will be submitted to the IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore Digital Library. Furthermore, proceedings, published in a volume with ISBN and ISSN numbers will posted at the conference WWW site. Moreover, most Events' organizers arrange quality journals, edited volumes, etc. and may invite selected extended and revised papers for post-conference publications (information can be found at the websites of individual events).


- Paper submission: April 23, 2014 (strict deadline)
- Position paper submission: May 12, 2014
- Acceptance decision: May 19, 2014
- Final version of paper submission: June 17, 2014
