[DMANET] Two calls for papers with extended deadlines: MCDM Track of the EMO2023 conference and Special issue on Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization

Dear Colleagues,

Please, find below two calls for papers with extended deadlines.

- MCDM Track, a part of the EMO2023 Conference. Accepted papers will be published in a proceedings book published by Springer. New deadline: October 12, 2022.
- Special issue on "Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization" of the journal Mathematical and Computational Applications (ISSN 2297-8747) dedicated to the 60th birthday of Prof. Kalyanmoy Deb. New deadline: November 1, 2022.

Please, feel free to distribute these calls for papers further to those who may be interested in contributing.
With best regards, Iryna Yevseyeva


Call for Papers: MCDM Track of EMO2023     

12th International Conference on Evolutionary

Multi-Criterion Optimization, March 20-24, 2022, Leiden, Netherlands 


Submission deadline: October 12, 2022  


The Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) track is an integral part of the 12th edition of the International Conference on Evolutionary Multi-Criterion Optimization (EMO). We will bring together EMO and MCDM communities to emphasize the importance of the topics on the intersection of EMO and MCDM areas of research and their practical value in solving real-world problems in various fields, including government, business, and industry.  


Papers are welcome to the MCDM track on theory, methods, applications, and/or software related to any aspects relevant to multiple criteria decision making, multiobjective and many-objective optimization, modeling and incorporating preferences, interactive methods, hybrids of EMO and MCDM approaches, software development, indicators, performance evaluation, challenges of various real applications, consideration of data-driven and simulation-based problems, etc.  


Reviewed, accepted full papers (max 12 pages) will be published in a proceedings book by Springer (Lecture Notes in Computer Science series). Find detailed instructions on the webpage: 


Please submit your paper via EasyChair to the MCDM Track by October 12, 2022: 

When submitting, please indicate in the submission menu that the paper is for the MCDM Track. 


The EMO2023 conference and the MCDM Track will be held in a hybrid format. 


For further inquiries about the MCDM Track, contact the MCDM Chairs Kaisa Miettinen (University of Jyvaskyla, Finland, and Iryna Yevseyeva (De Montfort University, Leicester, UK, 



Call for Papers: Special issue on "Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization"

of the journal Mathematical and Computational Applications (ISSN 2297-8747)

dedicated to the 60th birthday of Prof. Kalyanmoy Deb.


Deadline:  November 1, 2022.


Guest Editors: Carlos Coello, Erik Goodman, Kaisa Miettinen, Dhish Saxena,

Oliver Schütze, Lothar Thiele


We welcome contributions on research areas most impacted by Prof. Deb's work. We hence invite researchers to submit high-quality articles related (but not limited to) the following topics:

Evolutionary multi-objective optimization (EMO):

- multiobjective evolutionary algorithms;
- genetic operators;
- theory of EMO;
- performance indicators and proximity measures;
- archiving strategies;
- surrogate assisted optimization;
- integration of user preferences;
- many objective optimization;
- constraint handling;
- hybrid methods;
- test functions;

Multiple criteria decision making (MCDM);

- Bi-level optimization

- AI-assisted optimization;
- Applications to real-world problems.

Both research articles and surveys are welcome.
