Special Issues

 

Special Issues of Networks and of Journal of Combinatorial Optimization are associated with ISCO 2016.

The calls for papers are reported below.


 

Networks

We invite submissions of novel research articles for a forthcoming issue of Networks. The special issue is also open to papers which have not been presented at ISCO 2016. 

High quality research papers are solicited to address theoretical as well as practical issues of Combinatorial Optimization of a theoretical or practical nature involving graphs.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Approximation algorithms
- Graph coloring
- Exact algorithms
- Graph and network algorithms
- Computational complexity
- Network flow theory
- Location theory
- Vehicle routing
- Fast algorithms for special graph classes
- Scheduling algorithms

The deadline for submission of full papers is October 1, 2016.
The deadline for submission has been extended to November 30, 2016.

We aim at completing a first review of all papers by January 31, 2017.

Submission Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to the following address:

Journal of Combinatorial Optimization

We invite submissions of novel research articles for a forthcoming issue of Journal of Combinatorial Optimization on Combinatorial Optimization. The special issue is also open to papers which have not been presented at ISCO 2016.

High quality research papers are solicited to address theoretical as well as practical issues of Combinatorial Optimization.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Approximation algorithms
- Cutting-plane algorithms
- Polyhedral combinatorics
- Branch-and-cut-and-price algorithms
- Graph and network algorithms
- Linear and nonlinear (mixed-)integer programming
- Computational complexity
- Randomized algorithms
- Scheduling algorithms
- Interior point methods

The deadline for submission of full papers is October 1, 2016.

The deadline for submission has been extended to November 30, 2016.

We aim at completing a first review of all papers by January 31, 2017.

For their submissions, the authors should follow the “Instructions for Authors” of the journal website https://www.editorialmanager.com/joco/default.aspx. The article type for this issue is “S.I. : ISCO2016” and selecting this article type will ensure that the submission is sent to the editors of the special issue.
