Recent Research Topics in Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization: A Personal Perspective

In this talk, some research topics that are worth exploring (from the personal perspective of the speaker) in evolutionary multi-objective optimization will be briefly discussed. Such topics include scalability of multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (both in objective and in decision variable space), indicator-based selection, hyper-heuristics, parallelism and scalarizing functions. In the final part of the talk, some personal thoughts about the future of the field will also be briefly discussed.
