Paper Submission

Authors must strictly follow the manuscript preparation instructions:  Available Here

 

When submitting, please make sure you select "SS04: Single Objective Numerical Optimization" as the "Main Research Topic" for all papers making use of these benchmarks. Each submission should have either the learning-based or expensive or multiple-niche problems (i.e. these 3 sets of problems should not be combined into a single paper).


Paper Submission Deadline

We will follow the extended deadlines as determined by CEC 2015. (Currently 19th of Dec 2014). If you're unable to meet the final extended deadline, please inform us ( epnsugan@ntu.edu.sg  ).

 

Updates:

#2 on 7th Jan 2015

Niching Problems:   (updated on 7th Jan 2015)

Codes:
1. Test function 5, there is a bug in the code and will affect the result. Three versions have been updated.
2. Test function 7, the accuracy is increased, the former "4.1265" in the function which is used to make f(x*)=0 is updated to "4.126514". 

TR:
1. Errors in test functions 6, 7 and 8 are corrected.
2. pages are inserted.

 

#1 on 3rd Jan 2015

Learning-Based Problems(updated on 3rd Jan 2015)

lamada definded for "Rotated Expanded Scaffer’s F6 Function" in the composition function is modified since the previous one is too small to make the whole subregion has a low function values.   5e-4 is modified to 10.   Affected functions: 
page 15:  (12) Composition Function 4 
page 16:  (13) Composition Function 5
page 17: (14) Composition Function 6
page 18: (15) Composition Function 7

The codes are all updated and authors do not have to correct the results now, but for the final paper, they should rerun these four functions.

 

Niching Problems:   (updated on 3rd Jan 2015)

1. 11)Composition Function 3 bias= [0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90] is corrected to bias = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] +F11*. The codes are correct. So, not to be modified.

2.  lamada definded for "Rotated Expanded Scaffer’s F6 Function" in the composition function is modified to "100" since the previous one is too small to make the whole subregion to have low function values. Affected functions: 

11) Composition Function 3
12) Composition Function 4
13) Composition Function 5
15) Composition Function 7

The codes are all updated and authors do not have to correct the results now, but for the final paper, they should rerun these four functions.
