Special Session on Many-Objective Optimization

Evolutionary algorithms are particularly suited to solve multi-objective optimization problems because they can find a set of Pareto optimal solutions in a single run of the algorithm. So far, multi-objective EAs have been successfully applied mostly in two and three objectives problems. However, multi-objective EAs face several difficulties when we try to solve many-objective optimization problems, which optimize four or more objective functions simultaneously. At least, the following difficulties have been recognized in recent researches of evolutionary many-objective optimization.

1. The convergence deterioration of solutions toward Pareto front
2. The approximation of high dimensional entire Pareto front with a limited number of solutions
3. The presentation of obtained solutions in the high dimensional objective space and the decision making of a single final solution from them
4. The search performance evaluation of search algorithms
5. This special session focus on evolutionary many-objective optimization to tackle problems in many-objective optimization including the above mentioned difficulties.

-Algorithm design
-Preference based search
-Dimensionality reduction of the objective space
-Benchmark problems
-Visualization of high dimensional space and decision making
-Search performance metrics
