Call for Participation CEC2015 Competition "Dynamic Multi-objective Optimization"

Aim

Most real-world optimization problems have more than one objective, with at least two objectives that are  in conflict with one another. Furthermore, in many real-world situations the environment does not remain  static, but is dynamic and changes over time. However, in recent years most research was focussed on  either static multi-objective optimization problems (MOOPs) or dynamic single-objective optimization  problems (SOOPs). When solving dynamic MOOPs(DMOOPs) an algorithm has to track the changing POF  over time, while finding solutions as close as possible to the true POF and maintaining a diverse set of
solutions.

The aim of the competition is to address the lack of a comprehensive comparison of dynamic multi-objective optimization (DMOO)algorithms by providing a common platform for a fair comparison of DMOO algorithms. The competition enables participants to run their DMOO algorithms on 12 benchmark functions  with a range of characteristics and complexity for 8 different environments (8 different change frequency
and change severity combinations).

Researchers are welcome to evaluate their DMOO algorithms on the benchmark functions of this competition and to report their results by submitting a paper to the associated special session on DMOO.

Participants of the competition should follow the process outlined in the Competition Process to enter the  competition. The required format ofthe POS and POF files will be added to the website soon.

It should be noted that by entering the competition you agree that we are allowed to share your data with fellow researchers in the field. Therefore, this competition will provide DMOO researchers with experimental data to compare their algorithms against in future.

Please let us know if you intend to take part in the competition so that we can add you to our mailing list.


Deadline

The competition deadline is 15 February 2015.

Take note that if you want to submit your results as a paper to the special session on DMOO, the deadline for paper submission is 19 December 2015
