    Title: Adaptive Configurations of Evolutionary Optimization Algorithms

    Abstract: Over the last few decades, Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) have shown tremendous success in solving many complex optimization problems. The success of any EAs is dependent on the choice of its search operators as well as parameters. Many studies have been conducted to select the appropriate operators and parameters for EAs but with very little success. An algorithm, with a given set of operators and parameters, may work well for a problem or a set of problems, but that may perform badly with other problems. To ensure good performance of EAs over a wide range of problems, it requires a new strategy for configuring EAs. In this talk, different configurations of EAs will be discussed and their performance will be analysed by reporting the results of a wide range of test and practical constrained optimization problems.
