Combinatorial Optimization


Session on Combinatorial Optimization


  Original research papers in the areas of combinatorial optimization and its applications are solicited. In addition to theoretical results, we are interested in submissions that report on experimental and applied research of general algorithmic interest. Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

  • Algorithms and data structures
  • Approximation algorithms
  • Bioinformatics
  • Communication networks
  • Computational biology
  • Computational financing
  • Computational game theory
  • Computational geometry
  • Computational learning theory
  • Computational number theory
  • Graph theory
  • Network flow problems
  • Operation research
  • Optimal resource management
  • Scheduling


  Papers are invited from prospective authors with interest on the related areas. Each paper should follow the Springer - Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (AISC, format with title, author's names, affiliation, email addresses, abstract at least 70 and at most 150 words, and a one-column body with single-spaced 10 pages at most and with font size at 10. The attachment includes author guidelines and template. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only and be mailed to: Prof. Tao-Ming Wang at

Important Dates:

Deadline for paper submission: 2014-02-10   extended to 2014-03-17
Notification of acceptance: 2014-02-28   extended to 2014-03-20
Deadline for camera-ready manuscript submission: 2014-03-01   extended to 2014-03-28

  CMCSN proceedings is working to be published by Springer-Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (AISC) which is typically indexed by IET INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISTP, and DBLP. Exceptional quality papers will also be invited for further extension, and be considered for publication on journals and book series that are strongly associated with the conference series.
