Workshop on Computational Optimization  (WCO'09)

Mr�?gowo, Poland, October 12-14, 2009

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 and multimodal optimization
  • dynamic and noisy optimization
  • large scale optimization
  • parallel and distributed approaches in optimization
  • random search algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search and other derivative free optimization methods
  • interval 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
  • memetic algorithms
  • optimization methods for learning processes and data mining
  • computational optimization methods in statistics, econometrics, finance, physics, medicine, biology, engineering etc.

 



Papers Submission

  • Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file).
  • The total length of a paper should not exceed 8 pages (IEEE style). IEEE style templates are available here.
  • Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop.
  • Accepted and Presented paper will be published in the Conference Proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore® database.
  • Authors of selected papers accepted and presented during the WCO Workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions to be published in Mathematica Balkanica.
  • At the first edition of the Workshop on Computational Optimization (WCO 2008) were received 14 submissions from which 8 were accepted for presentation. Extended versions of 5 of the presented papers were accepted for publication in "Analele UVT".
