Special Issue: Computational Advances in Locational Analysis

Guest Editors: Boglárka G.-Tóth, Justo Puerto, Francisco Saldanha da Gama


  • Deadline for submission: January 15, 2016


This special issue intends to gather the scientific community working in Locational Analysis (LA). We aim at collecting new modeling approaches and solution algorithms. We are looking forward to new, original research with computational methods for practical applications. The focus of submitted papers should be on the derivation of new optimization models, their implementation, and computational experiments with realistic datasets.


We invite papers from all areas related to computational location theory including (but not limited to):


  • Marketing related problems;
  • Competitive Location;
  • Obnoxious Location;
  • Hub Location;
  • Location-routing and location-arc routing;
  • Advanced Location Models;
  • Location Applications (e.g., logistics network design, etc.)


Articles investigating continuous, discrete or network location problems are all welcome. Solution methods may be either exact or approximate. This feature issue will be a privileged outlet for the contributions presented at EWGLA XXII (the 22nd meeting of the EURO Working Group on Location Analysis, held in Budapest, May 20-22, 2015), but not limited to them.

All articles will be thoroughly refereed according to the high standards of the EURO Journal on Computational Optimization.
