This volume contains refereed proceedings of the IX International Conference Optimization and Applications (OPTIMA 2018) held in Petrovac, Montenegro, October 1–5, 2018. The previous conferences during 2009–2017 years attracted a significant number of students, researchers, academics, and engineers working in the field of optimization theory, methods, software, and related areas. The Conference was organized by five institutions:
• The Montenegrin Academy of Sciences and Arts (Montenegro);
• Federal Research Center "Computer Science and Control" of Russian  Academy of Science (Russia);
• University of Montenegro (Montenegro); University of Evora (Portugal);
• Institute of Information and Computational Technologies (Kazakhstan).
The Conference covered many optimization related areas ranging from pure theoretic studies to software and applications. The broad scope of OPTIMA made it an excellent collaboration platform for researchers from various domains related to optimization. The conference allowed
specialists from different fields to present their work and discuss both theoretical and practical aspects of their research. Another important aim of the conference was to stimulate scientists and people from industry to benefit from the knowledge exchange and identify possible grounds for fruitful collaboration.

As a standard, DEStech will submit the technical science conference proceedings to be indexed in EI (Citation and Compendex). DEStech will submit the technical science conference proceedings to EI, Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters Web of Science) and CNKI Scholar for worldwide online citation within one month after the Proceedings is completed. Please note that DEStech does not submit Proceedings of Social Science to EI since they will not be accepted for EI Compendex. However, DEStech will submit proceedings of Social Science to Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index-Social Science & Humanities (CPCI-SSH). We also caution our editors that Proceedings containing plagiarized material and Proceedings advertised that they will definitely be accepted by EI will be rejected by EI.
