(Single parameter-operator set based case)

This round, we are making use of the older problems developed for CEC 2015 and CEC 2014. The distinction between #2 and #4 is that #2 allows you to tune parameters separately for each problem while #4 requires you to use the same parameter setting for all problems. Authors are asked to participate in each of the above separately, i.e. a single paper is expected to tackle only one class of problems above. 

Software and Data: Click on the title of the technical report or paper in #1 to #4 to obtain the codes.
