Call For Papers

VIII ALIO/EURO Workshop on Applied Combinatorial Optimization
Montevideo, Uruguay, December 8-10, 2014


The ALIO/EURO Workshop on Applied Combinatorial Optimization series is a triennial event jointly promoted by the Association of Latin-Iberoamerican Operational Research Societies (ALIO) and the Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO), both within the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS).

The main purpose of the event is to bring together Latin American and European researchers and to stimulate activities and discussions about methods and applications in the field of combinatorial optimization. Researchers from other regions worldwide are also welcome. Previous editions of the ALIO/EURO Workshop on Applied Combinatorial Optimization were held in:
- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1989)
- Valparaiso, Chile (1996)
- Erice, Italy (1999)
- Pucon, Chile (2002)
- Paris, France (2005)
- Buenos Aires, Argentina (2008)
- Porto, Portugal (2011)

The 2014 edition of the workshop is organized by the Operations Research Department of the Computer Science Institute, Faculty of Engineering, Universidad de la República, Uruguay.


Contributions dealing with any aspect of Applied Combinatorial Optimization are welcome. This includes theoretical achievements, algorithm development and real-world implementations. Main topics of this workshop are, among others:
- Applications of Combinatorial Optimization
- Approximation algorithms
- Bio-informatics
- Branch-and-cut-and-price algorithms
- Computational complexity
- Emerging applications of OR
- Energy planning
- Graph theory
- Heuristics and metaheuristics
- Hybrid methods
- Integer programming
- Natural resource management
- Network design and analysis
- Production planning
- Telecommunications
- Transportation and logistics


- Michel Gendreau, Département de Mathématiques et de Génie Industriel, École Polytechnique de Montréal and CIRRELT, Canada
- Thomas Stützle, IRIDIA, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium
- Andres Weintraub, Departamento de Ingeniería Industrial, Universidad de Chile, Chile


- Deadline for submitting extended abstracts: June 9, 2014.
- Notification of acceptance to authors: August 11, 2014.
- Deadline for reception of final versions: September 22, 2014.
- Workshop: December 8-10, 2014.


Extended abstracts comprising up to six pages should be prepared according to the instructions given at the conference website.

A Special Issue of International Transactions in Operational Research including selected contributions from the workshop will be published.
