*Hi there! If you got here looking for our contributions to Adaptive Operator Selection using Multi-Armed Bandits, the latest method (AUC-MAB) is described in the GECCO'10 and PPSN'10 conference papers. A journal paper about it is being prepared. You can also check my PhD thesis for a more comprehensive description and analysis of all the proposed methods. And of course, please don't hesitate to contact me in case you have any questions, comments, ideas, etc... Thanks.
