This day was dedicated to open discussions about various topics, in particular

Next steps for next BBOB - workshops

  • what is the next BBOB workshop about?
  • expensive optimization testbed
  • plus standard (previous) BBOB
  • which code is ready to be used?

Redesign of the COCO platform

  • use cases
  • integrated tests
  • allow COCO users to compile their own benchmark suites
  • analysis of work needed for implementing constraints and MO (decide on interfaces if possible, milestone M4.1 after 9 months)
  • large scale benchmarks

Expensive optimization

  • specific algorithms we would like to see benchmarked
  • what needs to be done within COCO?
  • how to choose the target values?
