CALL FOR PAPERS


LION16: The 16th Learning and Intelligent Optimization Conference

June 5-10, 2022, Milos Island, Cyclades, Greece

Conference website: https://lion16.sba-research.org/

Paper submission: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lion16

Submission deadline:    February 15, 2022


Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another
journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

     Paper Format

     Please prepare your paper in English using the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) template, which is available here.

     Papers must be submitted in PDF.

     Types of Submissions

     When submitting a paper to LION16, authors are required to select one
of the following three types of papers:

     Long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 15 pages in LNCS format);
     Short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 6 pages in LNCS format);
     Work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format). For
example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant, and which may
solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.

List of Topics

LION16 welcomes high quality submissions on the broad topics of machine
learning, artificial intelligence, energy, mathematical programming,
optimization (models, algorithms, and applications) and heuristics.
Additionally, more specialized, submission topics for long and short
papers may include, but are not limited to:

     automatic solver configuration
     parallel methods for search and optimization
     hard combinatorial optimization problems
     intelligent optimization in health, e-health,
     bioinformatics and neurosciences
     machine learning and optimization methods in tourism and hospitality
     nature-inspired algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems
     hard combinatorial optimization problems in combinatorics,
     computational geometry and machine learning
     DC (difference of convex functions) learning: theory, algorithms and applications
     computational intelligence for smart cities
     computational intelligence for autonomous driving
     optimization and management in smart manufacturing
     algorithms and applied optimization for environmental data science
     machine learning and robust optimization techniques in finance applications
     machine learning and optimization methods in software engineering
