 CONFERENCE APPROACH

      This meeting, the seventh in the series of IPCO conferences held
      every year in which no MPS International Symposium takes place,
      is a forum for researchers and practitioners working on various
      aspects of integer programming and combinatorial optimization.
      The aim is to present recent developments in theory, computation,
      and applications of integer programming and combinatorial
      optimization. Topics include, but are not limited to:

            * polyhedral combinatorics
            * integer programming
            * cutting planes
            * branch and bound
            * geometry of numbers
            * semidefinite relaxations
            * matroids and submodular functions
            * computational complexity
            * graph and network algorithms
            * approximation algorithms
            * on-line algorithms
            * scheduling theory and algorithms

      In all these areas, we welcome structural and algorithmic
      results, revealing computational studies, and novel
      applications of these techniques to practical problems. The
      algorithms studied may be sequential or parallel, deterministic
      or randomized.

      During the three days, approximately thirty-six papers will be
      presented, in a series of sequential (non-parallel) sessions.
      Each lecture will be thirty minutes long. The program
      committee will select the papers to be presented on the basis
      of extended abstracts to be submitted as described below.

      The proceedings of the conference will be published in the
      Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will
      contain full texts of all presented papers. Copies will be
      provided to all participants at registration time.

 PAPER SUBMISSION

      An extended abstract (up to 10 pages) must be submitted by
      NOVEMBER 15, 1998. Electronic submissions (in PostScript) are
      strongly encouraged. Please refer to the Conference Web Site
      for further submission instructions.

      If an electronic submission is not possible, submit 8 copies
      by regular mail by NOVEMBER 1, 1998. Your submission must
      include author's name, affiliation, and e-mail address.

      Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by
      JANUARY 20, 1999. The final full version of the accepted paper,
      for inclusion in the conference proceedings, is due by
      MARCH 7, 1999.
