Call for Papers Workshop PCO 2014

Fourth Workshop on Parallel Computing and Optimization
http://conf.laas.fr/PCO14/index.html <http://conf.laas.fr/PCO13/>

to be held in conjunction with Symposium IEEE IPDPS, Phoenix, USA, May 23,

Paper Submission Deadline: January 6, 2014.


Scope of the Workshop:

The workshop on 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
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
problems like cooperative methods for integer programming problems and
polynomial optimization methods. Aspects related to Combinatorial
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,
and computational biology will be considered.

* Integer programming, linear programming, nonlinear programming.
* Global optimization, polynomial optimization.
* Exact methods, heuristics.
* Graph partitioning, preconditioning, Combinatorial Scientific Computing,
* Parallel algorithms for combinatorial optimization.
* Parallel metaheuristics.
* Distributed optimization algorithms.
* Hybrid computing and the solution of optimization problems.
* Peer-to-peer computing and optimization problems.
* Applications: planning, logistics, manufacturing, finance,
telecommunications, computational biology,
combinatorial algorithms in high performance computing.
