cms 2014  

We are pleased to announce the 11th International Conference on Computational Management Science (CMS) to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, in May of 2014.

With its unique mixture of cultural and social activities, Lisbon will undoubtedly provide the perfect discussion forum for academia and industry to exchange knowledge, ideas and results.

The CMS conference is an annual meeting associated with the journal of Computational Management Science published by Springer. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for theoreticians and practitioners from academia and industry to exchange knowledge, ideas and results in a broad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of computational methods, models and empirical analysis for decision making in economics, engineering, finance and management. This year the CMS conference will place particular emphasis on computational methods and tools relevant for two important areas: Energy and Finance.

We hope you accept this invitation to embark with us on a journey of discovery in the computational side of management science in the city that spawned many other journeys of discovery – Lisbon!

  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– computational economics, finance and statistics;
– energy;
– scheduling;
– supply chains;
– design, analysis and applications of optimization algorithms;
– deterministic, dynamic, stochastic, robust and combinatorial optimization models;
– solution algorithms;
– learning and forecasting such as neural networks and genetic algorithms;
– models and tools of knowledge acquisition, such as data mining;
– all other topics in management science with the emphasis on computational paradigms.
  Participants are invited to submit a short abstract (approximately 300 words). Participants may, in addition, submit a short conference paper (2-6 pages) to be published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, by Springer. A selection from all presentations will also be considered for publication as full papers in a special issue of Computational Management Science.
