============================================
FINAL DEADLINE: February 10, 2019

Journal Special Issue invitation for selected best papers
============================================


Scope:
======
The IEEE Workshop on Parallel / Distributed Combinatorics and Optimization aims at providing a forum for scientific researchers and engineers on recent advances in the field of parallel or distributed combinatorics for difficult optimization problems, ranging from theoretical to applied problems. The latter include for instance 0-1 multidimensional knapsack problems and cutting stock problems, large scale linear programming problems, nonlinear optimization problems, global optimization and scheduling problems.

Emphasis will be placed on new techniques for solving difficult optimization problems, like cooperative methods for integer programming problems, nature-inspired techniques and hybrid methods. Aspects related to Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC) will also be treated. We also solicit submissions of original manuscripts on sparse matrix computations and related topics (including graph algorithms); and related methods and tools for their efficiency on different parallel systems. Applications combining traditional parallel and distributed combinatorics and optimization techniques as well as theoretical issues (convergence, complexity, etc.) are welcome.

Application domains of interest include (but are not limited to) cloud computing, planning, logistics, manufacturing, finance, telecommunications and computational biology.


Topics:
=======
* Exact methods, heuristics, metaheuristics, hybrid methods;
* Parallel / distributed algorithms for combinatorial optimization;
* Parallel / distributed metaheuristics;
* Nature inspired parallel / distributed computing;
* Integer programming, linear programming, nonlinear programming;
* Global optimization, polynomial optimization;
* Cooperative methods, hybrid methods;
* Parallel sparse matrix computations, graph algorithms, load balancing;
* Applications: cloud computing, planning, logistics, manufacturing, finance, telecommunications, computational biology, combinatorial algorithms in high performance computing.
