Special Issue: Recent advances and applications of multi-objective optimization

Guest Editors: Dr. Gül┼čah Karakaya, Dr. Banu Lokman

  • Deadline for submission: January 31, 2023

Special issue information:

In today’s organizations, the decision makers (DMs) usually have to deal with multiple criteria that are conflicting with each other. Hence, multi-criteria decision making and optimization have been included in the fastest-growing subfields of operational research with their applications in diverse domains such as healthcare, sustainability, energy, logistics, and supply chain.

The aim of this special issue is to publish a collection of original research articles on recent advances and applications of multi-objective optimization for improved decision-making processes. Methodological developments and practical applications involving multi-objective modelling and optimization are welcome. High quality manuscripts developing new theory, algorithms, and real-life applications in the context of multi-objective optimization that address today’s challenges in decision processes are especially encouraged to be submitted.

Although this Special Issue is planned on the occasion of the 26th International Conference on MCDM, it is not limited to the research that has been presented at the conference.
