5th International Symposium on Combinatorial Optimization (ISCO 2018)
Wednesday, 10 January 2018

April 11-13, 2018 - Marrakech - Marocco

Spring School on “Advanced MIP Formulations and Computations”

on April 9- 10, 2018




ISCO is a biennial symposium whose aim is to bring together researchers from all the communities related to combinatorial optimization, including algorithms and complexity, mathematical programming and operations research. It is intended to be a forum for presenting original research in these areas and especially in their intersections. Quality papers on all aspects of combinatorial optimization, from mathematical foundations and theory of algorithms to computational studies and practical applications, are solicited.



The conference is organized into plenary and parallel sessions. The conference languages is English. Each speaker can give only one talk. Proposals for invited sessions are welcome. Researchers who are interested in organizing an invited session should contact  Ridha Mahjoub (ridha.mahjoub@)



ISCO 2018 will be preceded by a spring school on "Advanced MIP Formulations and Computations”. Juan Pablo Vielma and Joey Huchette from MIT will give 16 hours of lectures on April 9 and 10, 2018.



Papers presenting original unpublished results in all areas of combinatorial optimization and its applications are welcome.  The submission deadline is January 10, 2018. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences with published proceedings or journals are not allowed. 

Two types of submissions:

Regular papers with up to 12 pages

Accepted regular papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series in a post-conference proceedings volume. The authors will have to prepare their camera-ready version two weeks after the end of ISCO 2018.

Short papers up to 2 pages. Accepted  short  papers  will  be  included  in  a  volume  of  local proceedings.

More information about the submission procedure is available on the website of the conference.



A special issue of the journal Discrete Applied Mathematics will be dedicated to ISCO 2018.
