Call for Papers: IEEE Workshop PCO 2016

Sixth IEEE Workshop on Parallel Computing and Optimization


to be held in conjunction with Symposium IEEE IPDPS, Chicago USA, May 23, 2016

New Submission Deadline: January 12, 2016.


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 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.
In particular, we solicit submissions of original manuscripts on sparse 
matrix computations and relatives (including graph algorithms); and 
related methods and tools for their efficiency on different parallel systems.
Finally, the use of new approaches in parallel computing like GPU, MIC, 
peer to peer computing and cloud computing will be considered.
Application to planning, logistics, manufacturing, finance,
telecommunications 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.
* GPU, MIC, Cloud computing.
* Applications: planning, logistics, manufacturing, finance,
telecommunications, computational biology,
combinatorial algorithms in high performance computing.
