The optimization and 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.
