Special Issue: Nonlinear and Combinatorial Methods for Energy Optimization

Guest Editors: Claudia D'Ambrosio, Antonio Frangioni, Andrea Lodi, Martin Mevissen


  • Deadline for submission: January 31, 2015


Following the recent successful "Workshop on Mathematical Models and Methods for Energy Optimization (CWM^3EO)"


of the EU COST-Action TD1207 on "Mathematical Optimization in the Decision Support Systems for Efficient and Robust Energy Networks (ICT)"


and in anticipation of the forthcoming PGMO-COST "Workshop on Validation and Software"


we are glad to announce a special issue of the EURO Journal on Computational Optimization (EJCO) about "Nonlinear and Combinatorial Methods for Energy Optimization".

Energy optimization is among the biggest challenges of our time, since energy is a scarce resource whose efficient production and fair
distribution is associated with many technical, economical, political and ethical issues like environmental protection and people health. Optimization problems arise at different levels: planning, production, transmission, distribution, maintenance, only to mention a few.

We are looking for papers related to the themes of optimization methods applied to the energy optimization context. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Energy markets
  • Unit commitment
  • Economic dispatch
  • Nuclear reactors outage
  • Infrastructure planning
  • Energy distribution
  • Smart grid optimization
  • Integration of renewables
  • Nonlinear and discrete methods for energy related challenges

All interested researchers are invited to submit by January 31, 2015 high quality contributions to the website
