Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9520)


The paper deals with problems and ultramodern approaches recommended to solve various combinatorial optimization (CO) tasks, by using different types of computing environments, including various clouds (CC). A lot of new ideas have been proposed or at least outlined. Non-standard evaluation of the goal function value is also considered.
