Le 20/11/2017 par ajeanjean :

Due to numerous requests we have extended the deadline for submits to December
1, 2017. Please find the last call for papers below.


The Matheuristics workshop series is proposed as a primary forum for
researchers working on exploiting mathematical programming techniques in a
(meta)heuristic framework, granting to mathematical programming approaches the
problem robustness and time effectiveness which characterize heuristics, or
exploiting the mathematical programming model formulation in the customization
of a heuristic for specific or general problems.

The seventh edition of the workshop will be hosted by the Operations Research,
Scheduling, and Transportation research group of the Université François-
Rabelais’ Computer Science Laboratory in the city of Tours (France). The
workshop aims at collecting contributions that define the state of the art for
the computational effectiveness and efficiency or the theoretical properties
of «matheuristics». The workshop will be entirely devoted to this subject of
research and to its applications. The conference program will consist of
plenary presentations, enriched by a couple of keynotes. Topics of interest
include (but are not limited to):

- Model-based metaheuristics,
- Algorithms hybridizing (meta)heuristics and exact methods,
- MIP techniques used for defining heuristic solvers (such as local branching
and RINS),
- Problem relaxations to guide (heuristic) search,
- Decompositions and lower/upper bounds exploited in metaheuristics,
- Stochastic programming and heuristic search,
- Matheuristics for stochastic problems,
- Design and configuration of matheuristic algorithms,
- Experimental analysis and modeling of algorithms,
- Real world success histories of matheuristic applications, and
- Automatic configuration of matheuristics and algorithm selection

Submissions to Matheuristics 2018 should be comprehensive and self-contained,
and relevant to the topic of the workshop. They must fall into one of the
following categories:

1. Original contributions which have not been submitted to other conferences.
These contributions must be submitted as extended abstracts between 6 to 8
pages and should be extensive enough to let referees assess the quality and
the relevance of the work. Submissions belonging to this category must be
typeset in LaTeX2e and formatted in the LNCS Springer style.

2. High-quality manuscripts that have recently, within the last six months,
been submitted or accepted for journal publication.

All contributions will be first checked to ensure fitness with the workshop
area of interest. The papers deemed consistent with the workshop focus will be
reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and
