Special Issue "Evolutionary Computation for Multiobjective Optimization"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2017)
The exploration of novel algorithms for multi-objective optimization is still an open issue in scientific fields. Although many successful cases have been reported in recent years through the use of evolutionary algorithms, the reliability and performance are highly dependent on the number of objectives. On the one hand, many evolutionary algorithms may achieve sufficient accuracy; on the other hand, the balance of complexity and real-time performance has the disadvantage of complicated computing processes. Notwithstanding these concerns, this kind of methodology is commonly applied in management, production quality control, and business strategy decision-making. In response to the latest trend in mobile platforms, this Special Issue stresses the practicality of evolutionary computing for multi-objective optimization on dynamic or embedded systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, novel algorithms with sufficient reliability and real-time performance for application in the following areas:
Intelligent grid management
Intelligent transport system designs
Robotic control and learning

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
