Call for papers.
Conference on Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization
IPCO XX1, June 8–10, 2020
London School of Economics and Political Science
Submission deadline: November 29, 2019 (23:59 EST)
IPCO is a forum for researchers and practitioners working on various
aspects of integer programming and combinatorial optimization. The aim is
to present recent developments in theory, computation, and applications.
The scope of IPCO is viewed in a broad sense, to include algorithmic and
structural results in integer programming and combinatorial optimization as
well as revealing computational studies and novel applications of discrete
optimization to practical problems.
Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of their recent work by
November 29, 2019 (23:59 EST); see the submission guidelines below for more
information. The Program Committee will select the papers to be presented
on the basis of the submitted extended abstracts. Contributions are
expected to be original, unpublished and not submitted to journals or
conferences with proceedings before the notification date (January 31,
2020). Papers violating these requirements will not be considered by the
During the conference, approximately 33 papers will be presented in
single-track sessions. Each lecture will be 30 minutes long. The
proceedings will be published as a volume of Springer Lecture Notes in
Computer Science. They will contain extended abstracts of all accepted
submissions. It is expected that revised and extended versions will
subsequently be submitted for publication in appropriate journals.

Best Paper Award
For the first time in its history, IPCO will present a Best Paper Award, to
be chosen by the program committee.
The extended abstract — in Springer LNCS format — should not exceed 10
pages plus references. An appendix of at most 2 pages for more detailed
proofs (e.g., main lemma) and / or detailed computational results is
welcome and, if present, will be refereed and published. Submissions not
following these guidelines will not be considered. Full versions of the
submitted papers freely accessible in on-line repositories are welcome.
The first page should contain the title, the authors with their
affiliations, and a short abstract. The introduction should be a broadly
accessible exposition of the main ideas and techniques used to achieve the
results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. In
particular, the introduction should convey to the non-expert why the paper
should be accepted to IPCO. Submitted extended abstracts will be refereed
according to the standards of top tier refereed conferences. The main
acceptance criteria used by the Program Committee are the quality and
originality of the research, plus its interest to people working in the
field. It is crucial that the importance of the work is understood by the
committee. The claimed results must be correct and new.
A paper will not be considered in any of the following cases:
it has been already published;
it has been submitted to a journal or to another conference with
proceedings before the notification date;
it has a member of the Program Committee among its authors;
it is submitted after the submission deadline.
Authors must use LaTeX2e together with the LNCS class file from Springer.
