Aim and Scope

Researchers are invited to submit papers describing their current research in Variable Neighborhood Search. The aim is to present recent developments either in theory and methodology or in applications. The following are some indicative topics:

Theory and Methodology: Applications:
Theoretical or empirical analysis of VNS Mixed integer programming
New variants of deterministic and stochastic VNS Graphs, communication networks
Continuous global VNS Clustering, data mining, location
Convergent VNS methods Inventory, routing, supply chains
Metheuristics and VNS Formulation space VNS Packing and covering
Multi-objective VNS Discovery sciences
Parallel VNS Other real world problems
VNS hybrids
