We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper 
to WCO 2014 - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer 
Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2014).

FedCSIS is an annual international multi-conference organized by the 
Polish Information Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation 
with the IEEE Region 8, IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Poland Section 
Computer Society Chapter, IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section Computer Society 
Chapter, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, ACM Lodz 
Chapter, International Federation for Information Processing, European 
Alliance for Innovation, Informatics Europe, IEEE-CIS Poland Section 
Chapter, Asociación de Técnicos de Informática, Committee of Computer 
Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Society for Business 
Informatics, Polish Chamber of Information Technology and 
Telecommunications, Polish Chamber of Commerce for High Technology and 
Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster ICT.

Many real world problems arising in engineering, economics, medicine and 
other domains can be formulated as optimization tasks. These problems 
are frequently characterized by non-convex, non-differentiable, 
discontinuous, noisy or dynamic objective functions and constraints 
which ask for adequate computational methods.
The aim of this workshop is to stimulate the communication between 
researchers working on different fields of optimization and 
practitioners who need reliable and efficient computational optimization 
We invite original contributions related to both theoretical and 
practical aspects of optimization methods.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
- unconstrained and constrained optimization
- combinatorial optimization
- global optimization
- multiobjective optimization
- optimization in dynamic and/or noisy environments
- large scale optimization
- parallel and distributed approaches in optimization
- random search algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search and other 
derivative free optimization methods
- nature inspired optimization methods (evolutionary algorithms, ant 
colony optimization, particle swarm optimization, immune artificial 
systems etc)
- hybrid optimization algorithms involving natural computing techniques 
and other global and local optimization methods
- optimization methods for learning processes and data mining
- computational optimization methods in statistics, econometrics, 
finance, physics, medicine, biology, engineering etc


Papers should be submitted by April 23, 2014 (strict deadline). 
Preprints will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the 
FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will 
be submitted to the IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore Digital Library. 
Furthermore, proceedings, published in a volume with ISBN and ISSN 
numbers will posted at the conference WWW site.  Moreover, most Events' 
organizers arrange quality journals, edited volumes, etc. and may invite 
selected extended and revised papers for post-conference publications 
(information can be found at the websites of individual events).


- Paper submission: April 23, 2014 (strict deadline)
- Position paper submission: May 12, 2014
- Acceptance decision: May 19, 2014
- Final version of paper submission: June 17, 2014
