Submission instruction

Submissions to Matheuristics'2016 should be comprehensive and self-contained, and relevant to the topic of the workshop.

Submissions can be done HERE through Easychair in one of three categories:

  1. Contributed long article of up to 12 pages. These will be distributed (in case authors agree) in informal proceedings for the workshop in the IRIDIA Technical Report series (ISSN 1781-3794).
  2. Short abstract of up to 4 pages. They should be extensive enough to let referees judge the quality of the work and the relevance of the work.
  3. Work that has recently been published or submitted elsewhere and is relevant for the workshop for oral presentation only (free format).

All contributed articles must be written in English, typeset in LaTeX2e and formatted in the LNCS Springer style. To provide a uniform look to the informal proceedings, please use the LNCS package (zip, 218 Kb) for LaTeX2e and the instruction file (pdf, 160 Kb) directly from Springer web site.

All submitted papers 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 clarity. The authors of all contributed articles will be asked to improve their papers on the basis of reviewers' comments by June 30, 2016.

By submitting a camera-ready accepted manuscript, authors agree that at least one of them is committed to attend the workshop and to present their paper.

Publication details

The workshop will have informal proceedings in the IRIDIA Technical Report series (ISSN 1781-3794) that will be distributed through the Matheuristics 2016 webpage.
