Working Group 4 is tasked with support for software development in the field of nature-inspired search and optimisation heuristics. Instead of developing yet another software framework for nature-inspired search and optimisation heuristics it concentrates on the development of useful rules for the development of software and the adaptation of nature-inspired search and optimisation heuristics that are based on and guided by theoretical insights in their functioning.
The group provides and maintains a repository of case studies, good practice examples and a list of software components and frameworks.
