Dear R users,

I would like to draw your attention to 'cec2013', a new package
providing R wrappers for the 28 benchmark functions defined in the
Special Session and Competition on Real-Parameter Single Objective
Optimization at CEC-2013 (http://www.cec2013.org/).

The focus of this package is to provide an open-source and
multi-platform implementation of the CEC2013 benchmark functions, in
order to make easier for researchers to test the performance of new
optimization algorithms, or improvements to existing ones, in a
reproducible way.

The original C code was provided by Jane Jing Liang, while GNU/Linux
comments were made by Janez Brest.

This package was gently authorised for publication on CRAN by
Ponnuthurai Nagaratnam Suganthan. The official documentation is
available at:


cec2013 is already available on CRAN:


you can install it from the R console with:

 > install.packages("cec2013")

For any comment or contact for collaboration do not hesitate to
