3rd Call for Papers of STOPROG-2012

Dear Colleague,

the Organizers of the Special Workshop of Stochastic Programming  
Community and EURO "Stochastic Programming for Implementation and  
Advanced Applications" (StoProg-2012) have a pleasure inviting you to  
take part in this Workshop, which will held in Neringa, Lithuania, on  
3-6 July, 2012, http://www.mii.lt/STOPROG-2012.

The programme of workshop consists of tutorials, streams, invited and  
contributed papers. We encourage those interested in the following  
topics to overview the trends and gain a common attitude towards:
stochastic linear programming;
stochastic nonlinear programming;
stochastic integer programming;
stochastic programming in equilibrium problems;
stochastic gaming;
stochastic approximation;
stochastic heuristic algorithms;
chance – constrained optimization;
large-scale stochastic optimization;
risk measures and stochastic dominance;
complexity and efficiency of optimization algorithms;
stochastic optimization in data mining;
modeling support and model management for stochastic programs;
data visualization for stochastic programs;
analysis and engineering of algorithms
applications in finance;
applications in energy planning;
applications in transportation and logistics;
applications in agriculture and forestry;
applications in oil and gas industry;
applications in environment and sustainable development;
software development.

Abstracts must be written in English and contain no more than 600  
characters (no formulas or mathematical notations are allowed). Each  
attendee is allowed to present ONE paper at the conference.

The proceedings of the workshop published by an international  
publisher and abstracted/referenced in the Thompson ISI Web of Science  
DB will be delivered during the workshop. The special issues of papers  
on the subject of the workshop will be published in top- rating  
journals, too.

Location and Time
The workshop will be held on July 3-6, 2012, in the Baltic sea-side  
resort Nida, Neringa, (http://www.visitneringa.com/en), Lithuania  
(http://neris.mii.lt/indexe.php). Neringa, situated on the sandy  
peninsula at the Baltic Sea, is a nice corner of Europe that has to be  
Neringa ideally suits for scientific meetings because of the special  
status of United Nations for Neringa a quiet natural environment,  
limited urbanization and public attendance composes with modern  
organizational infrastructure and convenient connection through  
Klaipeda and Vilnius with many cities.

Venue and Accommodation
The venue of our workshop is Hotel "JURATE", Pamario str. 3, LT-  
93121, Nida, Lithuania,
The sittings of the workshop will be held in the Conference center of  
hotel “Jurate” and Nida‘s Culture and Tourism Information Center  
“Agila”, Taikos str. 4, LT-93121, Nida, Lithuania,  
Participants will be mainly accommodated in hotel “Jurate”, however we
