Papers Based on Previous Benchmarks

If authors make use of benchmark problems from recent-past competitions and obtain top results, such papers can also be submitted to CEC-75 special session associated with this competition. We will coordinate the review and update the comparison slides. But, there is no competition on other benchmark problems at CEC 2019. Authors are asked to clearly identify the benchmark used in the abstract of each submission. Recent Competitions of interest are listed below:
