This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications, COCOA 2007, held in Xi'an, China in August 2007. The 29 revised full papers presented together with 8 invited papers and 2 invited presentations were carefully reviewed and selected from 114 submissions. The papers feature original research in the areas of combinatorial optimization - both theoretical issues and and applications motivated by real-world problems thus showing convincingly the usefulness and efficiency of the algorithms discussed in a practical setting.
