Abstract

This book contains the contributions of the International Conference on Optimization and Decision Science (ODS2018), held in Taormina (Messina), Italy, from September 10 to 13, 2018. ODS2018 was the 48th annual meeting of AIRO, the Italian Operations Research Society, and was organized in cooperation with the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (DMI) of the University of Catania. ODS2018 was addressed to the entire Operations Research community working in the field of optimization, problem-solving, and decision-making methods. Its aim was to bring together scholars and decision-makers from both the academic and the industrial domain in order to present results with the potential to solve concrete problems and to provide new insights, bridging the researcher– practitioner gap. This book presents state-of-the-art knowledge relating to optimization, decisions science, and problem-solving methods, as well as a large variety of applications of extreme importance in relation to computer science, mathematical physics, engineering, statistics, and economics. It constitutes a fine collection of methodological and application-oriented papers that characterize the current research in challenging and worthwhile areas. The papers included in this volume present new developments in topics of great interest, such as scheduling, routing, heuristics and metaheuristics, logistics, health care, Bayesian optimization, supply chain management, and game theory. The selection of papers also provides novel applications in the optimal design of photovoltaic installations, parking pricing problems, industrial IoT networks, cybersecurity investments, and autonomous driving. Combining new methodological advances with a wide variety of real applications, this volume is certainly of great value not only to researchers and practitioners working in these areas but also to the Operations Research community. The work includes international contributions attesting to the success and global dimension of the project. Some papers were selected for publication as full papers, and some were accepted as short presentations. The peer-review process was conducted by experts in Operations Research and related fields. All the abstracts can be found at the website: http://www.airoconference.it/ods2018/. internationally distinguished professors, namely Nicholas Hall (Ohio State University, USA), Panos Pardalos (University of Florida, USA), and Maria Grazia Speranza (University of Brescia, Italy), which increase the overall quality of the book and provide a deeper understanding of the fields of interest faced here.
