    Third Call for Papers - Extended Deadline


    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.

    Invited speakers

    Markus Leitner (VU Amsterdam) - Influence maximization in (social) networks

    Anita Sch??bel (Frauenhofer ITWM, TU Kaiserslautern) -
    Robust multi-objective optimization: Concepts, results and applications

    J. Cole Smith (Syracuse University) - The Current and Future Waves of
    Interdiction Models and Algorithms

    Topics of Interest

    INOC solicits contributions in the broad field of Network Optimization,
    from the areas of Mathematical Optimization, Operations Research, and
    Graph Theory. Also application-oriented network optimization from areas
    like Telecommunications, Routing, and Logistics are most welcome. Topics
    include but are not restricted to:

    Algorithmic Game Theory on Networks
    Approximation Algorithms
    Combinatorial Optimization
    Connectivity Problems
    Graph Algorithms
    Graph Theory
    Heuristics and Meta-heuristics
    Mixed Integer Linear Programming
    Mixed Integer Nonlinear Optimization
    Multi-objective Optimization
    Multicommodity Flows
    Network Design
    Network Flows
    Network Interdiction
    Network Optimization
    Network Reliability
    Path and Tree Problems
    Robust Optimization
    Routing Algorithms
    Stochastic Networks
    Supply Chain Network Optimization
    Sustainable Mobility and Transportation
    Telecommunication Networks
    Transportation Networks
    Vehicle Routing

    Submission Guidelines

    INOC accepts both full papers to be published in the proceedings and
    extended abstracts to be published at the conference only:

    - Full papers describing original, not yet published or submitted work
    can be up to 6 pages (with two columns) long.

    - Extended abstracts describing recent results and ongoing research can
    be up to 2 pages long.

    All submission have to be formatted with the templates provided at the
    submissions webpage. Contributions will be peer reviewed by the program
    committee (see for the list of
    committee members). The proceedings will be published at OpenProceedings.

    After the conference, extended papers can be submitted to a special
    issue of the journal Networks.
