The organizers of CMS2018 have the great pleasure of inviting you to Trondheim, Norway, 29-31 May 2018, at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Faculty of Economics, Realfagbygget NTNU, rooms R3, R4, R5, R90.. Location.

SCHEDULE: There will be a reception Monday 19:30 (NTNU Business School). The program is on the top menu.

The CMS conference is an annual meeting associated with the journal Computational Management Science published by Springer.

The conference focuses on computational management science with emphasis on valuation problems, risk management and measurement applications, including optimal risk control problems, typically employing stochastic optimization, robust and distributionally robust optimization methods as in the tradition of CMS conferences. Increasingly over the years the conference attracted scholars from different scientific communities and Euro working groups, ranging from the optimization to the statistical, econometrical and applied maths communities and touching several application domains, including energy, finance, supply chain management and logistic problems.

Best student paper award:

A Best Student Paper Prize will be awarded at the CMS conference. Papers should be nominated via e-mail by the students’ supervisors (cms2018@ntnu.no and afzal.siddiqui@ucl.ac.uk). The deadline for submissions to the student paper prize has been extended to 30 March. We now plan for two awards, a first place award of 350 EUR and a second place award of 150 EUR. The program will include a devoted session for presenting the four best papers to compete for the prize, such that the jury could make the final choice. The paper does not have to be published. The papers should be principally authored by the student, but co-authors are permitted as long as their contributions are clarified. Only registered participants’ papers will be considered for the prize.

Jury for the student best paper award:

Miloš Kopa (Chair of the EWGSO), Francesca Maggioni (UniBG), Daniel Kuhn (EPFL), Afzal Siddiqui (UCL).


All authors of accepted abstracts are invited to submit full papers for a special issue of the journal Computational Management Science (Springer). Preparation of full papers is optional. These will go through peer-review.  Deadline for full paper submission is  21 September, 2018.
