Black-box Optimization Benchmarking (BBOB)

Users: 1 - Average Rating: 3.00

The Black-box Optimization Benchmarking (BBOB) workshop series provides an easy-to-use toolchain for benchmarking black-box optimization algorithms for continuous and mixed-integer domains and a place to present, compare, and discuss the performance of numerical black-box optimization algorithms. The former is realized through the Comparing Continuous Optimizers platform (Coco).

Actually, many box constrained optimization benchmarks exist in literature. This is a recent one, but does not refer a lot to other existing benchmarks.
