Final Call for Papers Workshop PCO 2015

Fifth Workshop on Parallel Computing and Optimization

to be held in conjunction with Symposium IEEE IPDPS, Hyderabad, India, 
May 29, 2015

New Paper Submission Deadline: January 9, 2015.


Scope of the Workshop:

The workshop on Parallel Computing and Optimization aims at providing 
aforum 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 
stockproblems, large scale linear programming problems, nonlinear 
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 
andpolynomial 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.
