CFP: IEEE CEC 2019 Special Session on Multimodal Multiobjective Optimization

In multiobjective optimization problems, there may exist two or more distinct Pareto optimal sets (PSs) corresponding to the same Pareto Front (PF). These problems are defined as multimodal multiobjective optimization problems (MMOPs). Arguably, finding one of these multiple PSs may be sufficient to obtain an acceptable solution for some problems. However, failing to identify more than one of the PSs may prevent the decision maker from considering solution options that could bring about improved performance.

Given that the study of multimodal multiobjective optimization (MMO) is still in its emerging stages, although a few MMO algorithms have been proposed, there is still no public test function platform to compare these algorithms.

The organizers hope that the special session will motivate other researchers to promote the design of novel algorithms to solving MMOPs and the method for MMO test problems.
