This quantity includes contributions from the eleventh overseas convention on administration technology (CMS 2014), held at Lisbon, Portugal, on may perhaps 29-31, 2014. Its contents mirror the extensive scope of administration technology, overlaying diversified theoretical facets for a relatively different set of purposes. Computational administration technology offers a special standpoint in proper decision-making tactics via targeting all its computational elements. those comprise computational economics, finance and records; power; scheduling; offer chains; layout, research and functions of optimization algorithms; deterministic, dynamic, stochastic, powerful and combinatorial optimization types; resolution algorithms, studying and forecasting reminiscent of neural networks and genetic algorithms; versions and instruments of information acquisition, resembling information mining; and all different issues in administration technology with the emphasis on computational paradigms.
