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 a yearly international multi-conference organized by the 
Polish Information Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation 
with the IEEE Region 8, IEEE Poland Section Computer Society Chapter, 
IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section Computer Society Chapter, ACM Special 
Interest Group on Applied Computing, International Federation for 
Information Processing, European Alliance for Innovation, IEEE-CIS 
Poland Section Chapter, Informatics Europe, 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.

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 11, 2014. 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.  Since 2012, Proceedings of the 
FedCSIS conference are indexed in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science. 
Moreover, extended versions of selected papers presented during the 
conference will be published as a volume in the Studies in Computational 
Intelligence series.
