Section: Application Domains


It is hard to find an aspect of our modern-day economy whose design, management and control do not critically depend on the solution of one or more CS decision problems. Even if they are pervasive, many of them are still not “satisfactorily” solved and constitute a strong challenge to research teams nowadays. The innovative research goals of INOCS have, without doubt, a strategic importance in the application field. CS problems appear in a broad range of application fields such as the next one cited hereafter.

  1. the energy sector where decisions of distinct nature such as production and distribution are jointly determined;

  2. supply chain management where location and routing decisions have to be defined jointly even if they refer to different time horizons;

  3. revenue management where the determination of prices for services or products requires to take explicitly into account the strategic consumers' behaviour.
