For this special issue we invite original research contributions to the theory, computation, and practice of multiobjective optimization. We welcome high quality papers falling within the a posteriori paradigm of multicriteria decision making (MCDM). The papers may address any type of multiobjective optimization problem, may propose methods and algorithms for multiobjective optimization and their supporting mathematical theory, and may describe important applications of multiobjective optimization in practice. The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2020.
This special issue is connected but not restricted to two current events organized within the MCDM community. The participants of the 25th International Conference on Multiple Criteria Decision Making, MCDM2019, Istanbul, Turkey, June 15–21, 2019, and the participants of the Dagstuhl Seminar on Scalability in Multiobjective Optimization, in Dagstuhl, Germany, January 12–17, 2020, are invited to submit their papers. Contributions arising from papers given at a conference should be substantially extended, and should cite the conference paper where appropriate. Furthermore, all researchers worldwide working on the topics indicated above are also invited to contribute.
Authors should follow the Instructions for Authors of Annals of Operations Research at (https://www.springer.com/journal/10479/submission-guidelines) and submit their high quality manuscript via Springer’s web-based system, Editorial Manager www.editorialmanager.com/anor/ by April 30, 2020. When prompted, please select the special issue’s title, Theory, Computation, and Practice of Multiobjective Optimization, to ensure that it will be reviewed for this special issue.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. The submitted manuscripts are sent to reviewers as they arrive but the editors reserve the right to reject any manuscript that does not present a high level of scholarship before the manuscript is sent to reviewers.
Accepted papers will be published online individually, before print publication. Further inquiries should be sent to the Guest Editors:
