Welcome to the MCO 2021 webpage!

MCO 2021 is the fourth event in the series of conferences on Modelling, Computation and Optimization in Information Systems and Management Sciences. The first three editions (MCO 04, MCO 2008 and MCO 2015) were traditionally organized in Metz, France by the Laboratory of Theoretical and Applied Computer Science (LITA),  University of Lorraine (LITA has became now the Computer Science and Applications Department (IA), LGIPM, University of Lorraine). Exceptionally, the fourth edition, MCO 2021, will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam on December 13-14, 2021.

MCO 2021 is co-organized by Computer Science and Applications Department (IA), LGIPM, University of Lorraine, France, Academy of Cryptography Techniques, Vietnam, Data science and Optimization of complex systems (DataOpt) Laboratory,  International School, Vietnam National University, Hanoi, Vietnam, and Vietnam National University, Hanoi, Vietnam.

MCO 2021 will cover several fields of Management Sciences and Information Systems: Computer Sciences, Information Technology, Mathematical Programming, Optimization & Operations Research, and related areas. The conference should allow researchers and practitioners to discuss recent developments in models and solutions methods for decision making in Engineering and Information Systems. Contributions to the solution of real-life problems are particularly appreciated.        

Call for Participation

The MCO 2021 invites all researchers and practitioners working in areas related to modelling, computation and optimization and their applications to submit works for consideration. We encourage all types of contributions including theory, algorithms, and applications, in particular on emergent domains such as Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Big Data, Robotics, ...
