    Final call for Extended Abstracts / Presentations


    Aachen, Germany-- 1-4 March 2022 @inoc2022 (twitter)


    The International Network Optimization Conference (INOC 2022) provides a
    forum for researchers in the broad field of network optimization to
    present and publish their latest results and ongoing research. INOC is
    the conference of the European Network Optimization Group (ENOG), a
    working group of EURO. The conference has been held biyearly since 2003,
    the latest in Avignon (France) in 2019. INOC 2022 will be held in March
    2022, most probably in a hybrid format, physically at RWTH Aachen
    University (Aachen, Germany) and online for those who are unable to attend.

    Call for Extended Abstracts

    INOC now accepts extended abstracts for presentations at the conference
    (without publication). The extended abstracts describing recent results
    and ongoing research can be up to 2 pages long (in the format provided
    at the website). Deadline for submission is now extended to November 26,
    2021 (final).

    Contributions will be reviewed by the program committee (see for the list of committee
    members). After the conference, extended papers can be submitted to a
    special issue of the journal Networks.

    Important Dates

    Submission deadline for extended abstract: November 26, 2021 (final)
    Notification of acceptance: December 17, 2021
    Early registration deadline and final paper submission: January 17, 2022
    Rosenmontag (Carnival): February 28, 2022
