Special Issue "Multi-Criteria Optimization Models and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020).
Interests: operations engineering; multicriteria optimization; decision sciences; green vehicle routing problems; portfolio optimization; computer science; conditional value-at-risk
The importance of strategic behavior in the human and social world is increasingly recognized in theory and practice. As a result, multicriteria optimization models and applications have emerged as a fundamental tool in pure and applied research. Multicriteria optimization models and applications strongly support decision-making processes in an interactive environment. They draw on mathematics, economics, statistics, engineering, biology, political science, operations research, and other subjects. A multioptimization occurs when multiple criteria considered by a decision maker are concerned with mathematical optimization problems involving more than one objective function to be optimized simultaneously. The decision maker considers a set of objectives in a situation in which each objective is possibly conflicting, possibly equally important, or possibly overlapping. The problem is then to determine the trade-off between objectives to support the decision-making process.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to gather a collection of articles reflecting the latest developments in the mathematical programming methods of operations research for multicriteria optimization for different fields of multicriteria optimization approaches, models, applications and techniques.

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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
