Welcome to the APMOD Conference 2012
APMOD 2012 is the tenth conference in the series of successful events covering mathematical optimization and modeling, theory as well as applications.
Contributions from modeling, solving methods and software as well as applications of optimization are very welcome. Relevant application areas include, but are not restricted to finance, transportation, supply chain planning and management, energy and infrastructure. The models may be deterministic or stochastic, and aspects considering robustness or disruption management are very welcome. The methodological focus of the previous conferences has been on mathematical programming including stochastic programming. In APMOD 2012 the scope will be extended to include other methods as well, such as heuristics, metaheuristics or simulation.
