EC Bestiary: A bestiary of evolutionary, swarm and other metaphor-based algorithms

Felipe Campelo; Claus Aranha

The Evolutionary Computation Bestiary (https://github.com/fcampelo/EC-Bestiary) is an initiative to catalogue the (mostly counterproductive) exhuberance of metaphor-based metaheuristics in the peer-reviewed literature. The project was started and is coordinated by Felipe Campelo (UFMG, Brazil) and Claus Aranha (Univ. Tsukuba, Japan), but it has benefited from contributions by several collaborators, who submit entries to the list. As of 2018 June 19, the list of contributors include (in alphabetical order):
