The Metaheuritic Optimization Group @ CityU HK

Our major research focus is to combine ideas and techniques from evolutionary computation, traditional mathematical programming and machine learning for designing efficient metaheuristic algorithms for dealing with hard search and optimization problems in fields ranging from engineering design to e-commence and management planning. The group has an excellent research track record. The multiobjective evolutionary optimization algorithms based on decomposition (MOEA/D) developed by us has become one of the most widely used algorithmic framework in the area of multiobjective evolutionary computation.
