[DMANET] Call for Papers - Special session on Multiobjective Optimization at META-2010

Special session on Multiobjective Optimization

as a part of

META 2010
International Conference on Metaheuristics and Nature Inspired Computing
October 28-30, 2010 - Djerba, Tunisia

Important dates
- Submission (2-page abstract): May 15, 2010
- Notification of acceptance: July 15, 2010
- Camera-ready version: September 15, 2010
- Conference: October 28-30, 2010

The scope of the special session includes (but is not limited to):
- Adaptation of metaheuristics to multiobjective optimization:
local search, simulated annealing, tabu search, iterated local search,
evolutionary algorithms, swarm optimization, scatter search.
- Algorithmic aspects of metaheuristics for multiobjective optimization:
search strategies, fitness assignment, diversity preservation, elitism,
constraint handling, implementation issues, analysis.
- Hybridization with other techniques:
hybrid metaheuristics for multiobjective optimization, cooperation with
exact approaches, interaction with multicriteria decision making.
- Performance assessment of metaheuristics for multiobjective
new performance indicators, theoretical properties and relation between
- Theoretical aspectsof metaheuristics for multiobjective optimization:
landscape analysis, problem properties.
- Application of metaheuristics for multiobjective optimization to
academic and real-world multiobjective optimization problems:
transportation, scheduling, timetabling, bioinformatics.

Submission of papers should be in shape of a 2-page abstract (including
figures, tables, and references). Templates are available on the website:
Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in
the following journals: COR (Computers and Operations Research), ITOR
(International Transactions in Operational Research), JMMA (Journal of
Mathematical Modelling and Algorithms).
