Call for papers: "Modelling and Applied Optimisation in Business and Engineering"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Operational Research.

Current activities in engineering and business involve making a series of decisions. These decisions are made by looking at the relevant data and using appropriate models. Today, companies are facing highly complex problems with important consequences. These companies have thus become aware of the importance of using mathematical models for decision making.

This special issue aims to collect recent original contributions related to developing good mathematical/optimisation models for decision problems in engineering and business. Theoretical and/or empirical contributions that make a significant contribution to this field are welcome.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Modeling, Simulation and Applied Optimization (ICMSAO’2013) (Hammamet, Tunisia, 28-30 April 28-30, 2013), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit papers for this special issue.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Analytical and stochastic modelling techniques and applications
  • Application of modelling in engineering and business
  • Applied optimisation in engineering and business
  • Combinatorial optimisation in engineering and business
  • Discrete event modelling
  • Mathematical modelling and application
  • Multiple objective optimization
  • Statistical and probabilistic modelling
  • Uncertainty and fuzziness in engineering and business decisions
Important Dates
Submission of manuscripts: 15 November, 2013
