Outcome Evaluation and Pricing in Superiorization and in Multiobjective Optimization

During this workshop high-level internal and external specialists, from various fields, come together to discuss the optimization of the »quality/price« ratio when solving complex real-world problems with feasibility-seeking, constrained optimization and superiorization, which involves many algorithmic decisions on the part of the user. These range from choice of the modeling approach to scaling and tuning permissible parameters.

If complete characterization conditions of the solution that is sought after are available, they can be used to evaluate and price the outcome of any algorithm that is applied. In the more commonly encountered situation when the latter is not applicable, we need tools to evaluate the quality of solutions. At the same time, we would also like to price various possible outcomes so that intelligent decisions can be made about how to run algorithms and optimize quality and price.
