A new family of route formulations for split delivery vehicle routing problems

We propose a new family of formulations with route-based variables for the split delivery vehicle routing problem with and without time windows. Each formulation in this family is characterized by the maximum number of different quantities of demand that can be delivered to a customer during a vehicle visit. The larger that this number is, … Read more

Scheduling the Brazilian OR Conference

In this paper, we show how to efficiently schedule the Brazilian OR conference using a matheuristic approach. The event has traditionally around 300 presentations across a period of 3 to 4 days, and building a schedule for the technical sessions is an arduous task. The proposed algorithm integrates the concepts of iterated local search and … Read more

Conference scheduling: a clustering-based approach

Scheduling the technical sessions of scientific events is an arduous task commonly faced by many organizers worldwide. Due the particularities of each conference, there is no consensus regarding the problem definition, and researchers have tackled each specific case individually. Despite their distinct characteristics, one often expects the sessions to be composed of presentations of similar … Read more

Branch-and-Cut approaches for p-Cluster Editing

This paper deals with a variant of the well-known Cluster Editing Problem (CEP), more precisely, the \textit{p}-CEP, in which a given input graph should be edited by adding and/or removing edges in such a way that \textit{p} vertex-disjoint cliques (clusters) are generated with the minimum number of editions. We introduce several valid inequalities where some … Read more
