Special issue on Bilevel Optimization

Guest Editors: Luce Brotcorne, Bernard Fortz, Martine Labbé


  • Deadline for submission: October 31, 2018


Bilevel Programming is a fairly recent branch of optimization that deals with programs whose constraints embed an auxiliary optimization problem. Bilevel programs are pervasive and are commonly found in a number of real-world problems. This includes problems in the domains of transportation, energy, economics, decision science, environmental economics, etc. Efficient exact or approximate solution algorithms for such problems must exploit the structure of the problems at hand.

The aim of the special issue is to invite high-quality manuscripts addressing bilevel optimization problems and presenting convincing numerical results.

Possible topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • Linear, convex, nonlinear, mixed integer bilevel optimization
  • Equilibrium problems
  • Stackelberg games
  • Energy applications
  • Transportation and location applications
  • Pricing problems
  • Interdiction and fortification problems

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

Submission deadline is October 31, 2018.
