Replicating and comparing computational experiments in applied evolutionary computing may sound like a trivial task. Unfortunately, it is not so. Namely, many papers do not document experimental settings in sufficient detail, and hence replication of experiments is almost impossible. Additionally, some work fails to satisfy the thumb rules for Experimentation throughout all disciplines, such that all experiments should be conducted and compared under the same or stricter conditions. Also… CONTINUE READING
