Special Issue: Computational Optimization in Disaster Risk Management

Guest Editors: Horst W. Hamacher, Marc Goerigk


  • Deadline for submission: March 31, 2015

Optimization methods have been playing a successful role in all parts of disaster risk management (DRM) for natural and man-made disasters, including preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery. With this special issue we aim at collecting new modeling approaches and solution algorithms for DRM. We are looking forward to new, original research in quantitative methods with direct reference to its practical applications. The focus of submitted papers should be on the derivation of new optimization models, their implementation, and computational experiments with realistic datasets.

Invited topics for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Location problems
  • Scheduling and logistics problems
  • Routing problems
  • Traffic control and contraflows
  • Algorithms for decision support
  • Network optimization
  • Multi-objective optimization
  • Optimization under uncertainty
  • Data aggregation

Following the journal's high standards, we expect high quality contributions that will undergo the strict reviewing process of EJCO.
