Special Issue on: "Models and Algorithms for Applied Optimisation Problems"

Guest Editors:
Chefi Triki, Sultan Qaboos University, Oman and University of Salento, Italy
Mehiddin Al-Baali, Sultan Qaboos University, Oman

Optimisation techniques are extensively used for solving a wide range of problems related to engineering, science and business. This special issue aims to be a valuable collection of original contributions proposing novel mathematical models and solution algorithms to solve challenging problems. Works devoted to solving real-life optimisation problems are particularly welcome.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 3rd International Conference and Numerical Analysis and Optimization (NAO2014), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Linear programming
  • Network models
  • Integer and mixed formulations
  • Stochastic programming
  • Non-linear programming
  • Heuristic techniques

Notes for Prospective Authors

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper has been completely re-written and if appropriate written permissions have been obtained from any copyright holders of the original paper).

All papers are refereed through a peer review process.

All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please read our Submitting articles page.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: 31 December, 2014

Notification to authors: 30 April, 2015

Final versions due by: 31 June, 2015
