This round, we are introducing new problems for the single objective bound constrained and single objective constrained optimization benchmarking. Authors are asked to participate in each of the above separately, i.e. a single paper is expected to tackle only one class of the problems above. 

Software and Data: Click on the title of the technical report in #1 to #3 to obtain the codes.

 

Paper Submission

Authors must strictly follow the manuscript preparation instructions:  http://www.CEC2017.org/  (paper submission has opened)

 

When submitting, please make sure that you select "SS26" as the "Main Research Topic" for all papers making use of these benchmarks.

 

Paper Submission Deadline

We will follow the extended deadlines as determined by CEC 2017.

 

Request for Feedback

If you have suggestions to improve the technical report or if you find any potential bug in the codes, please inform us ( epnsugan@ntu.edu.sg  ).

 

 

Revisions

1. Problem 2 in bound constrained set was changed (30th Nov).

2. Tech Report of the constrained competition is edited to reduce the numerical tables in the CEC paper (5th Dec).
