Evolutionary algorithms (as well as a number of other metaheuristics) have become a popular choice for solving problems having two or more (often conflicting) objectives (the so-called multi-objective optimization problems). This area, known as EMOO (Evolutionary Multi-Objective Optimization) has had an important growth in the last 15 years, and several people (particularly newcomers) get the impression that it is now very difficult to make contributions of sufficient value to justify, for example, a PhD thesis. However, a lot of interesting research is still under way. In this talk, we will review some of the research topics on evolutionary multi-objective optimization that are currently attracting a lot of interest (e.g., handling many objectives, hybridization, indicator-based selection, use of surrogates, etc.) and which represent good opportunities for doing research. Some of the challenges currently faced by this discipline will also be delineated.
Carlos Artemio Coello Coello received a PhD in Computer Science from Tulane University (USA) in 1996. His research has mainly focused on the design of new multi-objective optimization algorithms based on bio-inspired metaheuristics, which is an area in which he has made pioneering contributions. He currently has over 470 publications which, according to Google Scholar, report over 43,900 citations (with an h-index of 83). He has received several awards, including the National Research Award (in 2007) from the Mexican Academy of Science (in the area of exact sciences), the 2009 Medal to the Scientific Merit from Mexico City’s congress, the Ciudad Capital: Heberto Castillo 2011 Award for scientists under the age of 45, in Basic Science, the 2012 Scopus Award (Mexico’s edition) for being the most highly cited scientist in engineering in the 5 years previous to the award and the 2012 National Medal of Science in Physics, Mathematics and Natural Sciences from Mexico’s presidency (this is the most important award that a scientist can receive in Mexico). He is also the recipient of the prestigious 2013 IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award, “for pioneering contributions to single- and multiobjective optimization techniques using bioinspired metaheuristics” and of the 2016 The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) Award in “Engineering Sciences”. Since January 2011, he is an IEEE Fellow. He is also Associate Editor of several journals including the two most prestigious in his area: IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation and Evolutionary Computation. He is currently Vicepresident for Member Activities of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS), an IEEE CIS Distinguished Lecturer and Full Professor with distinction at the Computer Science Department of CINVESTAV-IPN in Mexico City, Mexico.
Ottawa Life Member Affinity Group presents: Ottawa L5, the first integrated Connected & Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) test environment in North America.
The Ottawa L5 private test track is a 1,866 acre, fenced and gated private facility with 16 kilometres of paved roads. The largest secure test facility for CAVs in Canada, the Ottawa L5 private test track creates an ideal proving ground for the safe and productive pre-commercial development, testing, validation and demonstration of CAV technologies. The Ottawa L5 testing facilities are equipped with GPS (RTK), dedicated short range communications (DSRC), Wi-Fi, 4G/LTE and 5G telecommunications and networking infrastructure, making it the first integrated CAV test environment of its kind in North America. Find more information at: https://www.investottawa.ca/ottawal5
Tour will last about an hour involving a walk around the site and a group discussion of various technical aspects of the L5 facility. An additional treat is the possibility of an autonomous shuttle ride at the site for some attendees.
Please register in advance with firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday October 11. Priority will be given to Life members. All members and family are welcome. There is an online liability waiver to be signed. The link will be provided to registrants.

Topic: #TechnologyNorth – the gold standard
Suzanne envisions a world where a Made in Canada #TechnologyNorth seal is the global gold standard of quality, synonymous with leather shoes Made in Italy, grapes harvested in Champagne, and autos designed and manufactured in Germany. Canada’s world class innovators have delivered excellence decade over decade. Without adequate support of the sector through COVID19, this vision may be a non-starter. During economic difficulties Canada has traditionally bailed out traditional auto and airline industries, and innovative technologies like the AVRO Arrow, Nortel, Research In Motion, Cognos and aspiring young companies were orphaned. By failing to protect our innovators, Canada traded in future traction of Canada’s valuable intellectual property. America, Europe and the Middle East hungry to prosper from our bargain IP and talent came out the winners. Each downturn has taken at least a decade for technology to reinvent itself and rebound.
We have a track record of great beginnings and a more mature Canada can weather the storms and aim for bigger commercial finish lines, where prosperity and job abundance translate to big returns. Before COVID19 struck, we were hitting our stride with record venture investments and sought after talent from leading education institutions. Canada’s Innovation Agenda demonstrated a maturing future view aiming to lead. This is no time to retreat! The government has invested on behalf of Canadians and accountable for a $36B year over year injection into innovation via universities and commercialization. This investment is at risk. Toronto was the fastest growing tech hub in North America with ICT and advanced technologies outpacing job and economic growth rates by almost twice the national average. As we look beyond COVID19, our technology sector, adequately supported through this crisis, can be the catalyst to jump start Canada’s future economy. With a troubled oil and gas sector, Canada will need agile, fast movers doing the heavy lifting to fund our social, health and education programs and rebuild the nation’s balance sheet.
And as we get back to shipping products and services, a more sophisticated approach to sales, branding, advocacy and public relations, layered with Canada’s science, technology, engineering and maths genius can place Canada out in front in multiple lanes. The digitization revolution just got a bump up and opportunities and demand will remain for trillion dollar market frontiers. Data, Internet of things and machine learning are golden. Demand for artificial intelligence, environmental, medical and space solutions will continue to accelerate. Winning the future will take more collaboration, agility, commercial savvy and embracing diverse talent sets and creativity. We’ve got this Canada!
