The X International Workshop on Locational Analysis and Related Problems will take place during January 23-24, 2020 in Seville (Spain). It is organized by the Spanish Network on Location and Related Problems and GELOCA, the SEIO working group on Location. The Spanish Location Network is a group of more than 140 researchers organized in 6 thematic nodes and distributed among several Spanish universities. Every year, the Network organizes a meeting to promote the communication among its members and between them and other researchers, and to contribute to the development of the location field and related problems. The last meeting took place in Cádiz, January 30- February 1, 2019.

The topics of interest are location analysis and related problems. This includes location models, networks, transportation, logistics, exact and heuristic solution methods, and computational geometry, among others.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present works in the form of oral communications or posters. For the participation, the submission of a short abstract is required.
