Title: Design Issues for Multi-objective Memetic Algorithms

Abstract: This overview work presents the main concepts related to Multi-objective Memetic Algorithms (MMA). The focus is on advanced design aspects when constructing MMAs; through application examples, some issues like genetic encoding, the choice of an appropriate local searcher and alternative ways to balance resources, among other, are discussed.
