As I promised, I gave a talk about Parameter Setting (Control and Tuning) to other GeNeura members (and invited!). This talk is based mainly in a cool (and easy to read!) work of A. E. Eiben and S.K. Smit (download draft here), but recently a new version with more information and stuff has been published in Journal of Swarm and Evolutionary Computation (you can download the paper directly from Eiben’s webpage here). The first one is more introductory but the second delves into the more technical aspects.
The slides are here (sorry, they are in Spanish :( )
Also you can download the Keynote (.key) file from here. It includes EPIC mega-hella-awesome-mac-transitions! (yeah, I have to admit I was willing to give a talk just to show my new Mac’s awesomeness, sorry).
