The workshop “Recent Advances in Multi-Objective Optimization” focuses on latest advances in exact methods in multi-objective (mixed) integer optimization.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Multi-objective discrete/combinatorial problems
  • Multi-objective mixed integer (non)-linear problems
  • Multi-objective continuous non-linear problems
  • Multi-objective branch-and-bound algorithms
  • Multi-objective branch-and-cut algorithms
  • Column generation and branch-and-price algorithms
  • Objective space algorithms
  • Stochastic multi-objective optimization
  • Robust multi-objective optimization
  • Complexity analysis of multi-objective optimization algorithms
  • Parallelization of exact algorithms in multi-objective optimization

Presentations will be given in English.

Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Küfer, Head of Department "Optimization", speaks about »Industrial Applications of Multicriteria Decision Support«:

17:00 – 17:30
