Release Highlights of PlatEMO 3.5

Release Note can be found here

  • Enhance the application module, where users can define problems and save results more easily.

  • Add three decomposition based multi-objective evolutionary algorithms MOEA/D-DCWV, MOEA/D-PFE, and MOEA/D-VOV and a surrogate-assisted multi-objective evolutionary algorithm MCEA/D. There are currently 180 algorithms in the platform.

Features of PlatEMO

  • Totally Developed in MATLAB
    PlatEMO consists of a number of MATLAB functions without using any other libraries. Any machines able to run MATLAB can use PlatEMO regardless of the operating system.

  • Includes Many Popular Algorithms
    PlatEMO includes more than ninety existing popular MOEAs, including genetic algorithm, differential evolution, particle swarm optimization, memetic algorithm, estimation of distribution algorithm, and surrogate model based algorithm. Most of them are representative algorithms published in top journals after 2010.

  • Various Figure Demonstrations
    Users can select various figures to be displayed, including the Pareto front of the result, the Pareto set of the result, the true Pareto front, and the evolutionary trajectories of any performance indicator values.

  • Powerful and Friendly GUI
    PlatEMO provides a powerful and friendly GUI, where users can configure all the settings and perform experiments in parallel via the GUI without writing any code.

  • Generates Data in the Format of Excel or LaTeX
    Users can save the statistical experimental results generated by PlatEMO as an Excel table or LaTeX table, which can be directly used in academic writings.


  • [recommend] You can ask any question in issues block and upload your contribution by pulling request(PR).
  • If you want to add your MOEA, MOP, operator or performance indicator to PlatEMO, please send the MATLAB code (able to be used in PlatEMO) and the relevant literature to [email protected].
  • If you have any question, comment or suggestion to PlatEMO or the algorithms in PlatEMO, please contact Ye Tian ([email protected]) or join the group of QQ(Group number: 721627832).
