Paper Submission Deadline
We will follow the deadlines as determined by CEC
2013 which is now extended to March 2013 as the final - firm deadline.
Updated on 29th Jan 2013:
Considering the suggestions from the researchers, we updated our competition as follows:
1. Error value smaller than 10-8 will be taken as zero.
2. 50D is added in the competition. Considering the limited time, results of 10D and 30D problems are acceptable for the review submission. However, 50D should be included in the final version. Thus 28*3 (10D, 30D and 50D) files should be zipped and sent to the organizers after the final version of the paper is submitted.
3. Equations of novel composition functions are modified for ease of understanding.
4. Some bugs have been modified:
(1) Codes for problems 3 and 4 were inconsistent with the report. Problem 3 is bent_cigar while Problem 4 is discus_func. The report has been modified.
(2) For cf05, it is similar to cf04, not cf02. The report has been modified.
(3) For cf08, lamda_5=0.1. The report has been modified.
(4) Equations for Tosz, Functions 7, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21 are corrected in the report to be consistent with the code.
(5) In the code, "sphere_func(x,&fit[i],nx,&Os[i*nx],&Mr[i*nx*nx],1)" is modified to "sphere_func(x,&fit[i],nx,&Os[i*nx],&Mr[i*nx*nx],0)";
5. A mistake in the technical report
(page 35) is corrected:
"c) The complete computing time for the algorithm with 200000 evaluations of the same D dimensional benchmark function 3 is T2. "
Here "benchmark function 3" should be "benchmark function 14" (the same as b).
Problems 3,4,21,27,28 should be run again due to the changes effected on 29th of Jan.
For Linux Users:
Please change %xx in fscanf and fprintf and do not use "WINDOWS.H".
We thank Dr. Thomas Stuetzle for suggesting items 1 & 2, and Dr Janez Brest for his comment on Linux.
Updated on 15th February 2013:
We thank Dr. Thomas Stuetzle and Dr Tianjun Liao for suggesting to change codes used to compute time T0 so that C compilers will not be able to optimize and eliminate the for-loop. This change affects only T0, not the benchmark problems.
