Submission Deadline



EMO 2019 is the 10th Edition of International Conference Series on Evolutionary Multi- Criterion Optimization (EMO), aiming to continue the success of previous EMO conferences. We will bring together both the EMO, multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) communities, and other related fields and, moreover, focus on solving real-world problems in government, business and industry. Michigan is the birthplace of genetic algorithms research and EMO 2019 will plan on celebrating past 50 years of research and development in evolutionary computation and 10th edition of EMO conference series.


Following the tradition of the EMO community, the conference will be in single session format, with papers provided as either oral or as poster presentations. The conference format will include:

• Keynote speeches

• Tutorial presentations

• EMO track deliberations

• MCDM track deliberations

• Industry track deliberations


The conference will take place at Michigan State University’s Kellogg Hotel and Conference center at East Lansing in Michigan, USA.


We aim to discuss all aspects of EMO development and deployment, including (but not limited to):

  • EMO for handling of continuous, combinatorial and/or mixed-integer problems

  • Constraint handling approaches

  • Uncertainty and noise handling approaches

  • Many-objective optimization

  • Theoretical foundations

  • Preference handling techniques

  • Performance evaluation and metrics

  • Multiobjectivization

  • Local search techniques

  • Hybrid approaches

    • Point and population-based hybrids

    • EMO and MCDM hybrids              

  • Stopping criteria

  • Parallel EMO models and implementations

  • Test functions and benchmark problems

  • Algorithm selection approaches

  • Comparative studies

  • Metamodeling methods in EMO

  • EMO in Bilevel and generic hierarchical optimization

  • Knowledge-driven EMO

  • Large-scale optimization

  • Real-world applications

  • EMO algorithm implementation

Springer will publish the EMO-2019 proceedings under LNCS Series. Full papers with a maximum of 12 LNCS style pages will be published. No distinction on Poster and Oral papers in terms of page length and quality will be made.


Springer has kindly instituted two Awards with award money: One Best Paper Award and one Best Student Paper Award.

Sessions Planned:

  • Keynotes

  • Tutorials

  • EMO Sessions

  • MCDM Sessions

  • Industry Sessions

  • Industry Booths for Software/Application Demonstration

  • Poster Session

  • Panel Session (to be finalized)
