Conference Call for Papers

The 16th Annual International Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications (COCOA 2022) will be held during December 11-13, 2022 in Dallas, Texas, USA. Original research papers in the areas of combinatorial optimization and its applications are solicited. In addition to theoretical results, we are particularly interested in submissions that report on experimental and applied research of general algorithmic interest. Special consideration will be given to research that is motivated by real-world problems. Experimental and applied papers are expected to show convincingly the usefulness and efficiency of the algorithms discussed in a practical setting.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

Algorithms and Data Structures
Approximation Algorithms
Operation Research
Communication Network Optimization
Energy Efficient Wireless Sensor Networks

Overview

Top Research Topics at Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications?

  • Combinatorics (50.75%)
  • Discrete mathematics (29.08%)
  • Mathematical optimization (16.19%)

The conference tackles a plethora of topics, such as Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Mathematical optimization, Time complexity and Approximation algorithm. The Combinatorics study featured in the conference draws connections with the study of Bounded function. The study on Discrete mathematics presented is investigated in conjunction with research in Parameterized complexity.

Mathematical optimization research featured in Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications incorporates concerns from various other topics such as Algorithm and Scheduling (computing), Job shop scheduling. Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications focuses on Chordal graph as well as the interrelated topic of Indifference graph. Many of the studies tackled connect Indifference graph with a similar field of study like 1-planar graph.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Energy minimizing vehicle routing problem (214 citations)
  • Positive Influence Dominating Set in Online Social Networks (49 citations)
  • Solving the Connected Dominating Set Problem and Power Dominating Set Problem by Integer Programming (41 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications:

The conference publications mainly tackle studies in Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Mathematical optimization, Algorithm and Integer programming. The most cited articles with studies in Combinatorics featured incorporate elements of Bounded function and Constant (mathematics). The conference publications explore topics in Mathematical optimization which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Routing (electronic design automation), Connected dominating set, Spanning tree, Benchmark (computing) and Function (mathematics).

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2015 edition, 0.00% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 25.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 3.33% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 25.00% of all publications and 46.67% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
