About these proceedings
The volume contains the papers selected for presentation at IPCO 2008, the 13th International Conference on Integer Programming and Combinatorial - timization that was held in Bertinoro (Italy), May 26–28, 2008. The IPCO series of conferences, sponsored by the Mathematical Progr- ming Society, highlights recent developments in theory, computation, and app- cation of integer programming and combinatorial optimization. The ?rst conf- ence took place in 1990; starting from IPCO 1995, the proceedings are published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The 12 previous IPCO conferences were held in Waterloo (Canada) 1990, Pittsburgh (USA) 1992, Erice (Italy) 1993, Copenhagen (Denmark) 1995 [LNCS 920], Vancouver (Canada) 1996 [LNCS 1084], Houston (USA) 1998 [LNCS 1412], Graz (Austria) 1999 [LNCS 1610], Utrecht (The Netherlands) 2001 [LNCS 2081], Boston (USA) 2002 [LNCS 2337], New York (USA) 2004 [LNCS 2986], Berlin (Germany) 2005 [LNCS 3509], and Ithaca (USA) 2007 [LNCS 4168]. The c- ference is not held in the years when the International Symposium of the Ma- ematical Programming Society takes place.
