Special Issue on "Scalable and High-Performance Architectures for Large-Scale Data Management” - RITA

 
In the last years the overwhelming growth in the data generated and its dynamism have created challenging scenarios where Scalable and High-Performance architectures are fundamentals to process and extract knowledge in an efficient manner. The Revista de Informática Teórica e Aplicada (RITA - ISSN 2175-2745) seeks submissions for a special issue on Scalable and high-performance architectures for large-scale data management.

Papers must be written in English, according to the RITA formatting guidelines. Only full papers are accepted for submission. Papers will be refereed through a blind process for technical merit and content. 

Topics of Interest (but not limited to):

Computing Performance Scalability for Big Data
Online, Active, Decentralized Large-scale Data Processing
Processing Large-scale Datasets Using HPC
Batching and Streaming for Large-scale Data Processing

Special Issue on "Exact and Heuristic Solutions for Optimization Problems” - Revista de Informática Teórica e Aplicada (RITA) - Extended Deadline

 
Many real-world problems may be formulated as optimization problems, and high-quality solutions for solving hard optimization problems are required. This Special Issue on Exact and Heuristic Solutions for Optimization Problems focuses on publishing original and high-quality papers that significantly contribute to the areas of Combinatorial Optimization, Continuum Optimization and with the design and Application of algorithms for solving real-life optimization problems.

Papers must be written in English, according to the RITA (ISSN 2175-2745)  formatting guidelines. Only full papers are accepted for submission. Papers will be refereed through a blind process for technical merit and content. 

Topics of Interest (not limited to):

Operational Research Applications
Combinatorial Optimization Methods
Continuous Optimization Methods
Dynamic Optimization Problems
Constraint Programming
Exact, Metaheuristic, and Matheuristic Methods
Multi-Objective Optimization
Valid Inequalities and Decompositions
Heuristics Combined with Machine Learning Techniques 
Parallel and Cooperative Metaheuristics
Evolutionary Algorithms


Papers will be submitted to the journal following the traditional online submission process but authors should select the Special Issue – ”Exact and Heuristic Solutions for Optimization Problems”. Full details of submission procedures and requirements are available at http://seer.ufrgs.br/rita
