cms 2014  

The deadline for submission of abstracts and papers is now extended to February, 28th. Contributed abstracts, of no more than 300 words, are welcome as well as conference papers, between 2 to 6 pages, to be published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, by Springer. Conference papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee. If you wish, just click here to proceed directly to submission.

We would also like to invite you to consider the organization of one or more sessions on a topic of your interest. Sessions should include 3 presentations, of 30 minutes each (20 minutes + 10 minutes for follow-up questions). We would be delighted to include your sessions on the program. Just send an email to the conference chairs with a proposed session.

You will find all the information and details on the CMS 2014 conference website, where you are also able to register for the conference and benefit from the "early bird" fees. Hotel bookings and other accommodation arrangements can be made through the conference website, following registration. We remind that each speaker must be registered, otherwise it won't be possible to include the talk in the book of abstracts. Likewise, at least one of the authors from each paper must be registered in the conference for it to be included in the conference book, to be published by Springer. We also remind that each participant may at most be the speaker of one presentation.

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.

Do not miss this opportunity to embark 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.
