Special Issue on Exact and Heuristic Solutions for Optimization Problems

 

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 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
