Special issue on Computational Discrete Optimization

Guest Editors: Arie Koster and Clemens Thielen


  • (Extended) Deadline for submission: October 31, 2019


In a world where decisions are made on the basis of ever-growing amounts of available data, computational efficiency is a key property of almost every modern optimization algorithm. The aim of this special issue to be published on the occasion of EURO 2019 is to collect high-quality manuscripts with a computational focus from the broad area of discrete optimization and (mixed) integer programming. Both theoretical and more applied manuscripts are welcome, provided the computational contribution is significant. Submissions are not restricted to work presented at EURO 2019.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • algorithms for (mixed) integer programming
  • approximation algorithms for discrete optimization problems
  • decision diagrams and discrete optimization
  • decomposition techniques
  • exact algorithms for discrete optimization problems
  • graph algorithms
  • multi-objective discrete optimization
  • novel (mixed) integer programming formulations
  • primal-dual algorithms for discrete optimization problems
  • robust discrete optimization
  • scheduling and packing algorithms
  • shortest path and routing algorithms
  • valid inequalities for discrete optimization problems

Following the journal's high standards, all contributions will undergo the strict reviewing process of EJCO. Submission deadline is 31 October 2019.
