The optimization for sustainability theme is attracting increased interest from the Operations management, Information Management, Operations Research, Decision Support Systems and related academic communities because it gives researchers working on optimization techniques the opportunity to increase the impact of their findings by relating their work to current world-wide challenges, such as sustainability, i.e. taking into account the economic, environmental and social dimensions. Latest research including methods, models and algorithms for addressing sustainability problems are welcome to this special session. Also research on decision support systems with special emphasis on the use of mathematical models and/or algorithms required to address the principles of sustainability are encouraged.
