Benchmarks for Evaluation of Evolutionary Algorithms

We organized several competitions on benchmarking evolutionary algorithms. Recently, we also developed several composition functions to evaluate evolutionary algorithms. The objective of this work is explained in our Swarm Intelligence Symposium 2005 paper and also in the CEC Invited Session / Competition pages listed below.
