Call For Papers

The Fourth Workshop on Computational Optimization, Modelling and Simulation (COMS 2013)
June 5-7, 2013, Barcelona, Spain.

The 4th workshop "Computational Optimization, Modelling and Simulation (COMS 2013)'' will be a part of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2013). This will be the 4th event of the COMS workshop series with the first held during ICCS 2010 in Amsterdam, the second held during ICCS2011 in Singapore and the third at ICCS2012 in USA. COMS 2013 intends to provide a forum and foster discussion on the cross-disciplinary research and development in computational optimization, computer modelling and simulation.

COMS2013 will focus on new algorithms and methods, new trends, and latest developments in computational optimization, modelling and simulation as well as applications in science, engineering and industry.

Topics include (but not limited to):
· Computational optimization, engineering optimization and design
· Bio-inspired computing and algorithms
· Metaheuristics (ant and bee algorithms, cuckoo search, firefly algorithm, genetic algorithms, PSO, simulated annealing etc)
· Simulation-driven design and optimization of computationally expensive objectives
· Surrogate- and knowledge-based optimization algorithms
· Scheduling and network optimization
· Integrated approach to optimization and simulation
· Multiobjective optimization
· New optimization algorithms, modelling techniques related to optimization
· Design of experiments
· Application case studies in engineering and industry.

Scientific Program Committee:
· D. Echeverría, Stanford University, USA
· Z. W. Geem, Gachon University, Korea
· G.A. Gray, Sandia National Labs, USA
· O. Kolb, Technical University Darmstadt, Germany
· R. S. Parpinelli, University of Santa Catarina State, Brazil
· B. Protas, McMaster University, Canada
· J. Sklenar, University of Malta, Malta
· L. Wright, National Physical Laboratory, UK
· Q. J. Zhang, Carleton University, Canada

Authors are invited to submit their original, unpublished manuscripts before Dec 31, 2012, using the online submission system of the ICCS 2013 conference (select "Computational Optimization, Modeling and Simulation (COMS 2013)" in the "Workshop" field).

All accepted papers will be published in Elsevier's Procedia Computer Science series as part of the ICCS2013 proceedings.
