Call for Papers

The Fourth International Conference on Computational Sciences and Optimization (CSO 2011)
Kunming and Lijiang, Yunnan, China, April 15-19, 2011

(Papers Due: October 15, 2010)

Accepted papers will be published in the conference CD proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society, which is indexed by EI Compendex and ISTP.
Computational Sciences and Optimization are two important disciplines in modern sciences concerned with many areas ranging from engineering, management, finance, and economics, to arts and humanities. Currently some new challenges arise in the modeling of complex systems, sophisticated algorithms, advanced scientific and engineering computing and associated problem-solving environments. Because the solution of complex problems must cope with tight timing schedules, powerful computational algorithms and complex optimization techniques are inevitable for solving some practical problems.

In order to strengthen academic exchanges and discussions on the fields of computational sciences and optimization, the Fourth International Conference on Computational Sciences and Optimization (CSO 2011) will be held on 15-19 April 2011 in Kuming and Lijiang, Yunnan, China. The main theme of this conference is “Computational Sciences and Optimization for Engineering Practice”. We are pleased to invite you to attend this important event and to submit papers and workshop proposals. All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society (EI and ISTP indexed). Some selected high-quality papers will be published in the special issues of several SCI/SCI-E indexed main-stream international journals.
