Call For Papers


Xth Joint ALIO/EURO International Conference 2021 on Applied Combinatorial Optimization
November 29 to December 1, 2021
Viña del Mar, Chile


The Joint ALIO/EURO International Conference on Applied Combinatorial Optimization is a triennial event jointly promoted by the Association of Latin-Iberoamerican Operational Research Societies (ALIO) and the Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO), both of which are within the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS). The main purpose of the event is to bring together Latin American and European researchers and to stimulate activities and discussions about methods and applications in combinatorial optimization. Researchers from other parts of the world are also welcome.

The last editions of the Joint ALIO/EURO International Conference on Applied Combinatorial Optimization were held in Bologna, Italy (2018), Montevideo, Uruguay (2014), Porto, Portugal (2011), and Buenos Aires, Argentina (2008).


Contributions dealing with any aspect of Applied Combinatorial Optimization are welcome. This includes theoretical achievements, algorithm development, and real-world implementations. Main topics of this workshop are, among others: Applications of Combinatorial Optimization, Approximation algorithms, Bioinformatics, Branch-and-cut-and-price algorithms, Computational complexity, Emerging applications of OR, Energy planning, Graph theory, Heuristics and metaheuristics, Hybrid methods, Integer programming, Natural resource management, Network design and analysis, OR for sustainability, Production planning, Telecommunications, Transportation and Logistics.


ALIO Plenary Speaker: Nicolas Stier-Moses, Facebook Core Data Science
EURO Plenary Speaker: Markus Leitner, VU Amsterdam
Invited Plenary Speaker: Javiera Barrera, Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez


Deadline for Submission: May 1, 2020
Notification of acceptance: July 2021
Camera Ready: September 2021
Conference: November 29 to December 1, 2021


The authors are invited to submit their papers describing original, previously unpublished research results and not currently under review. There are two types of submissions: full papers (4-6 pages using the two-column ACM sigconf template) and extended abstracts (1-2 pages, free template). Accepted short papers will be published in open access at, with an assigned DOI and indexed in DBLP.

There will be a Feature Cluster in European Journal of Operational Research dedicated to "Recent Advances in Applied Combinatorial Optimization". We invite participants to submit papers corresponding to works presented at the conference. Submissions will be open immediately after the conference (January 2022).


Eduardo Moreno (Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, Chile), Chair.
Elena Fernández (Universidad de Cádiz, Spain), EURO Co-Chair
Javier Marenco (Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento, Argentina), ALIO Co-Chair.
