For optimization problems, various algorithms have been designed which are base donnature-inspired concepts .Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) and swarm optimization algorithms are two different classes in which nature inspired algorithms are classified. A new variant based on tournament selection called VTS-ABC (Variable Tournament Size-Artificial Bee Colony) algorithm is provided in this paper. Its performance is compared with standard ABC algorithm with different size of data on several Benchmark functions and results show that VTS-ABC provides better quality of solution than original ABC algorithm in every case.
