Plan (future work)

1. Implementation of some (at least the most influential) variants of PSO. This implementation should be modular and flexible enough to generate ad-hoc(according to problems characteristics) PSO versions and incorporate hybrid approaches easily. The language of choice will be C in order to reuse code developed by others. 2. Comparison of all the different PSO variants and other EC techniques including ACOR on a variety of benchmark problems. Some of them are already coded and some others are proposed in the literature. This will contrast with previous and current practices in which only a small number of benchmark problems are used. 3. Propose a PSO variant based on the F-Race technique. If the implementation is modular, it should be possible to consider various aspects such as neighborhood topologies as variables to be tuned and therefore, we could get ad-hoc PSO algorithms for specific applications.
