Combinatorial optimization emerges as mathematical models and algorithmic solution techniques of a wide variety of real life problems which can be considered as discrete ones.
European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization within EURO (The Association of European Operational Research Societies) organizes annual conferences to promote the newest results in the field.
In the year 1995 the eighth ECCO Conference will be held in Poznan, Poland,
a place which seems easily accessible for scientists, researchers and
practitioners both from the West and East.
