Scope of the Workshop

Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization (EMO), i.e., the simultaneous optimization of 2 or more objective functions by means of bio-inspired search heuristics, has become one of the main research fields in evolutionary computation in recent years and as such also gained interest from the classical field of multicriteria decision making. Together with the rapid development in practice, also theoretical analyses of EMO gained more and more interest recently.

To foster this growing interest, the PPSN 2012 workshop on Theoretical Aspects of EMO aims at bringing together both theoreticians working in the field of EMO and from single-objective optimization and EMO practitioners. Besides presenting the newest theoretical results about EMO, the workshop aims at providing hands-on sessions in which practitioners and theoreticians work in collaboration on selected open questions proposed by the audience.

In this regard, we would like to invite both theoreticians and practitioners to either present an open problem or discuss about the latest developments in the field of theoretical analysis of evolutionary multiobjective optimization. The workshop covers all theoretical topics of EMO, including but not limited to

The workshop is a follow-up of a GECCO'2010 workshop on the same topic ( and is hopefully a step forward towards a regular meeting of researchers interested in both evolutionary multiobjective optimization and theory.
