Call For Papers

The 7th International Conference on Variable Neighborhood Search (ICVNS 2019) will be co-organized by the EURO Working Group on Metaheuristics (EWG EU/ME) and the Laboratory of Information Systems, Intelligent Systems and Mathematical Modeling (SI2M) of the National Institute of Statistics and Applied Economics (INSEA).
The main goal of the ICVNS 2019 is to provide a stimulating environment in which researchers coming from various scientific fields can share and discuss their knowledge, expertise and ideas related to the VNS Metaheuristic and its applications. The aim of the 7th edition of the ICVNS is to allow specialists and practitioners on Variable Neighborhood Search to effectively screen papers and participate in lively debates.
