The course will cover the fundamental concepts related to multi-objective optimization, as well as different techniques to solve these problems and also a number of standard techniques that are used throughout to assess performance of multi-objective  metaheuristics. Although the course will emphasize the research work done on multi-objective evolutionary algorithms, it will also put light on other bio-inspired metaheuristics (e.g., particle swarm optimizers, tabu search, artificial immune systems, and differential evolution, among others).

The schedule of the course will be:

  • 9:15hrs to 11:15hrs (May 6th to May 9th)

  • 9:15hrs to 10:55hrs (May 10th)

Topics to be covered include:

  • Basic Concepts
  • A review of multi-objective evolutionary algorithms
  • Techniques to maintain diversity
  • Test problems
  • Performance indicators
  • Hybrid approaches
  • Other bio-inspired metaheuristics
