Welcome to the public home page of the research project “AESOP: Algorithms for Expensive Simulation-Based Optimization Problems”, funded by PGMO for the 2017-2018 period.

Our open access policy will allow you to read here about our progress towards benchmarking and designing (blackbox) optimization algorithms for expensive problems. Via the menu at the top left of this page, you can access for example information about the team consortium, our scientific publications, our contribution to scientific events, and our project meetings.

One main aim of the AESOP project is to exploit our Comparing Continuous Optimizers platform COCO and extend its reach towards the Bayesian/expensive/simulation-based/surrogate-model-based optimization community.
