The Stochastic Programming E-Print Series (SPEPS) is intended to serve as an
online repository of recent results in the area of Stochastic Programming
(SP). By SP, we mean decision and control models in which data evolves over
time, and are subject to significant uncertainty.
The goal of SPEPS is to provide a service to the SP community by managing
rapid dissemination of results in the SP area. In general, papers will be
screened (reviewed lightly), and will be either accepted or rejected based
on the reports. That is, SPEPS will typically not consider multiple rounds
of reviews. However, in those rare cases in which we suggest that the
authors do submit a revised manuscript, the suggested revisions will be
minimal. In keeping with these goals, the review/screening process for SPEPS
will take no longer than three months from the date of submission.
Furthermore, this process is not stringent enough for a paper to be
considered error-free. Thus, the authors are encouraged to submit their
paper to an archival journal.
All papers will be submitted electronically, in either pdf or ps format.
Only one file should be submitted, and it should contain a title page
listing the title of the paper, the authors, and the e-mail addresses of all
authors. The pdf/ps file must be sent as an attachement to a "cover letter"
expressing an interest in posting it on SPEPS. This e-mail should be
adressed to one of the co-editors (Sen or Römisch).
Unlike an archival journal, this E-Print series will post accepted papers on
this web site for four years from acceptance or until they are accepted for
publication in a journal, and copyright is transferred from the authors to
the publisher. At that point, it will be incumbent upon the authors to
inform the Editorial Assistant to retire the paper from SPEPS. Failure to do
so is a violation of SPEPS policies, and the editorial board will not be
responsible for any copyright violations resulting from such negligence.
By posting a paper, the author is consenting to have any subscriber of SPEPS
download the paper for his/her use. However, papers downloaded from this
site are not to be distributed without the consent of the author.
