报告题目：Evolutionary Computation for Dynamic Optimization Problems
内容简介：Evolutionary Computation (EC) encapsulates a class of stochastic ptimization algorithms, which are inspired by principles from natural and biological evolution. EC has been widely used for ptimization problems in many fields. Traditionally, EC methods have been applied for solving static problems. However, many real world problems are dynamic ptimization problems (DOPs), which are subject to changes over time due to many factors. DOPs have attracted a growing interest from the EC community in recent years due to the importance in the real-world applications of EC. This talk will first briefly introduce the concept of EC and DOPs, then review the main approaches developed to enhance EC methods for DOPs, and describe several detailed approaches developed for EC methods for DOPs. Finally, some conclusions will be made based on the work presented and the future work on EC for DOPs will be briefly discussed.
报告题目：Evolutionary Computation for Multi-objective Optimization
内容简介：Multi-objective optimization aims to optimize usually conflicting two or more objectives simultaneously. Evolutionary Computation (EC) has been successfully applied to solve multi-objective optimization problems (MOPs) for several decades with promising results. This talk will first introduce the concepts relevant to MOPs and EC for MOPs, then briefly present the performance measures and test problems used for studying EC for MOPs, and describe main approaches of designing EC methods for solving MOPs, including some detailed EC methods for MOPs. Finally, some future work on EC for MOPs will be briefly discussed.
报告题目：Evolutionary Computation for Many-objective Optimization
内容简介：Many-objective optimization problems (MaOPs) are multi-objective optimization problems (MOPs) that have four or more conflicting objectives to be optimized simultaneously. MaOPs are very challenging to solve. In recent years, studying evolutionary computation (EC) for solving MaOPs has become a very hot topic in the EC community with some promising results. This talk will first introduce the concepts to MaOPs, then describe the main approaches of designing EC methods for solving MaOPs and present some recently developed EC methods for solving MaOPs. Finally, some conclusions on EC for MaOPs will be briefly made.
