Second International Workshop on Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization Design and Application (EMODA'06)

held in conjunction with

Sixth International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA2006)

October 16-18, 2006, Jinan, Shandong, China

Workshop chairs:

Crina Grosan (Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania)

Ajith Abraham (Chung Ang University, Seoul, South Korea)

Optimization problems occur often in our daily life.  In a multiobjective optimization problem (MOP) many (sometimes conflicting) objectives have to be satisfied simultaneously. Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) (and, generally, evolutionary techniques) have proved their efficiency in dealing with problems having more than one objective. Over the past few years there has been an explosion with respect to the interest in Multiobjective EAs (MOEAs) and the number of publications generated increase each year. At almost each conference on Evolutionary Computation there is at least one MOEAs section.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on MO to discuss about their work and to exchange research ideas in this field.


Topics include, but are not limited to:

Theoretical developments:

- Swarm Intelligence for Multiobjective Optimization

- Multiobjective Evolvable Hardware

-Comparative studies of MOEAs

- New Algorithms for Multiobjective Optimization

- Test Data for Multiobjective Optimization Algorithms

- Performance Measures for Multiobjective Optimization Algorithms

- Hybrid MOEAs

Real world applications of MOEAs

- Image and Signal Processing

- Control and Automation
- Bioinformatics
- Data Mining
- E-commerce applications
- Internet Modeling, Communication and Networking
- Decision Support Systems
- Information Retrieval
- Virtual Reality
- Other Engineering Applications

Paper Submission: May 22, 2006 (extended)

Notification of Acceptance: June 15, 2006

Final Paper Submission: July 10, 2006


EMODA papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society. The manuscripts should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings, which will be maximum 6 pages in IEEE double column format. Please format your paper, as described in the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines where you can find instructions (Word, PDF, Postscript ).

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least THREE independent referees of the international program committee of EMODA'06. Submitted papers should not have been published elsewhere or being currently under consideration by any other conference/workshop.

Submission procedure is supported by Conference Management Tool (CMT). To submit a paper first register on the submission Web site ( Note, that not all file formats are accepted by the system - there are no problems with compressed files (e.g. zip). After uploading the paper through the conference web site, please also send a copy of the paper to <>

Correspondence concerning submission process and participation in the conference or in one of the workshops should be sent to workshop organizers.

Special issue of an International Journal

Best papers from the EMODA'06 workshop will be considered for a special issue of an International Journal.

Best student paper award

The program committee will select the best student paper of EMODA'06. The best paper award winner will receive a copy of the book: "Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization: Theoretical Advances and Applications", published by Springer Verlag London, 2005.

Previous event:



The organizers received 10 full papers and after the peer review process 3 full papers were accepted for the EMODA'05 workshop programme. Our special thanks to all the contributors, referees and program committee members.
