              Call for Papers
              Workshop PCO'12

Parallel Computing and Optimization


to be held in conjunction with IEEE IPDPS, Shanghai, China, May 21-25, 2012


New Submission Deadline: January 13, 2012


Scope of the Workshop:

The workshop on new trends in Parallel Computing and Optimization aims at
providing a forum for scientific researchers
and engineers on recent advances in the field of parallel or distributed
computing for difficult combinatorial optimization
problems, like 0-1 multidimensional knapsack problems and cutting stock
problems, large scale linear programming
problems, nonlinear optimization problems and global optimization problems.
Emphasis will be placed on new techniques
for the solution of these difficult problems like cooperative methods for
integer programming problems and polynomial
optimization methods. Aspects related to Combinatorial Scientific Computing
(CSC) will also be treated. Finally, the
use of new approaches in parallel computing like GPU or hybrid computing,
peer to peer computing and cloud computing
will be considered. Application to planning, logistics, manufacturing,
finance, telecommunications and computational biology
will be considered.
