Dear Colleagues

We would like to draw your attention to an upcoming special issue of 
Mathematical Programming B on Optimization Models and Algorithms for 
Data Science.

Data and decisions are more strongly linked in the information age than 
ever before. This special issue focuses on modelling and optimization 
approaches that deal with large data sets, as well as applications from 
business analytics and machine learning that have emerged in the last 
decades as data accumulates from multiple sources such as internet 
traffic, social and sensor networks.

Successful submissions to this call are expected to provide a 
substantial methodological contribution to

  * /data-related modelling issues in optimization/, such as tractable
    reformulations of problems involving uncertain data (e.g. using
    stochastic, robust or data-driven optimization techniques); or
  * /numerical solution schemes for optimization problems involving
    large data sets/, such as solution approaches for large, sparse
    optimization problems or real-time optimization methods.

This call is being advertised via the British-French-German Conference 
on Optimization 2015 (optimisation.doc.ic.ac.uk/bfg2015). Attendance at 
the conference is not a pre-requisite for submitting a paper to the 
special issue, however.

Authors should submit their papers via 
http://www.editorialmanager.com/mapr/ and select article type "S.I.: 
Data Science — Series B" for consideration in this special issue.

Papers will be refereed according to the standards of Mathematical 
Programming, Series A. We are requesting that all papers be submitted 
using MP style files, and conform to a maximum of 25 pages. The 
necessary LaTeX files can be downloaded at 
www.eng.cam.ac.uk/~dr241/MPB/MPB- Springer-latex-style-files.zip.

** *Deadline for submission of full papers:* December 1, 2015. We aim at 
completing a first review of all submissions by May 15, 2016.
