Single objective optimization algorithms are the basis of the more complex optimization algorithms such as multi-objective, niching, dynamic, constrained optimization algorithms and so on. Research on the single objective optimization algorithms influence the development of these optimization branches mentioned above. In the recent years, various kinds of novel optimization algorithms have been proposed to solve real-parameter optimization problems. At CEC 2015, we will organize competitions on the following 3 single objective classes:
- Learning based single objective global optimization where a separate algorithm can be used for each problem class.
- Expensive optimization problems by using (or without using) surrogates / metamodels / fitness landscape approximation.
- Multiple-Solution optimization (niching) problems.
Results of 30D problems are acceptable for the first review submission. However, other dimensional results (as specified in the respective technical report) should also be included in the final version, if space permits. Thus, final results for all dimensions in the format introduced in the technical report should be zipped and sent to the organizers after the final version of the paper is submitted. Please Note that in this competition error values smaller than 10^-8 will be taken as zero.
You can download the C, JAVA and Matlab codes for CEC’15 test suites from the website given below:
We now invite you give your feedback on the test suite and participate in this competition.
