Combinatorial Optimisation Conference 2024

25th – 28th June 2024

CO2024 is the 22nd edition of the Combinatorial Optimization Conference Series. It will be held at the University of Southampton (Sir James Matthew Building, Above Bar Street, Southampton City centre, UK) on June 25th – 28th, 2024, with the aim of bringing together researchers and practitioners of Combinatorial Optimization.

The meeting aims to bring together researchers in the field of Combinatorial Optimization to present their work, share experiences, and discuss recent advances in theory of methods and applications.

Topics of interest

  • Development of methods such as exact optimization methods, approximation algorithms, network flows, integer programming, global optimisation, stochastic optimisation multi-objective optimisation, heuristics/metaheuristics, hyperheuristics, matheuristics, decomposition-based algorithms, column generation, bilevel/multi-level programming, graph theory.
  • Developments in application areas such as game theory, cutting and packing, vehicle routing, scheduling, timetabling, pricing.
  • Applications in areas such as production/manufacturing, supply chain optimisation, finance, energy, telecommunication, sports.
