[DMANET] CFP: EC+DM@GECCO-2022 - Workshop on Evolutionary Computation and Decision Making




Workshop on

Evolutionary Computation and Decision Making (EC+DM)

The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2021), July 9-13,
2022, Boston, USA. Please note that the conference will be held as a hybrid
conference. More details will be provided soon.



About the workshop

Solving real-world optimisation problems typically involve an expert or
decision-maker. Decision-making tools have been found to be useful in
several such applications e.g. health care, education, environment,
transportation, business, and production. In recent years, there has also
been growing interest in merging Evolutionary Computation (EC) and
decision-making techniques for several applications. This workshop will
showcase research that is both at the interface of EC and decision making.

The workshop on Evolutionary Computation and Decision Making to be held in
GECCO 2022 aims to promote research on theory and applications in the field.
Topics of interest (but not limited to) include:

§ Interactive multiobjective optimization or decision-maker in the loop

§ Visualization

§ Aggregation/trade-off operators & algorithms

§ Fuzzy logic-based decision-making techniques

§ Bayesian and other decision-making techniques

§ Interactive multiobjective optimization for (computationally) expensive problems

§ Using surrogates (or metamodels) in decision making

§ Hybridization of EC and decision making

§ Scalability in EC and decision making

§ Decision making and machine learning

§ Decision making in Big data

§ Decision making in real-world applications

§ Use of psychological tools to aid the decision-maker


We invite papers up to 8 pages relevant to the workshop and position papers
of up to 2 pages showing preliminary results. We also welcome posters,
demonstrations or presentations on ground-breaking theoretical and
application results in the field.
