Abstract
The GECCO Workshop on Real-Parameter Black-Box Optimization Benchmarking Series is a series of benchmarking workshops held every year since 2009 that evaluates the performance of new optimization algorithms. Originally, the workshop organizers provided results for every year the workshop took place. In this article, we directly compare algorithms from every workshop held from 2009 to 2018. We analyze the compared algorithms on the noiseless benchmark function set using the competition's official empirical approach, and with a statistical approach called Deep Statistical Comparison.
