This paper presents the results of the second edition of the Wind Farm Layout Optimization Competition, which was held at the 22nd Genetic and Evolutionary Computation COnference (GECCO) in 2015. During this competition, competitors were tasked with optimizing the layouts of ve generated wind farms based on a sim-plied cost of energy evaluation function of the wind farm layouts. Online and oine APIs were implemented in C++, Java, Matlab and Python for this competition to oer a common framework for the competitors. e top four approaches out of eight participating teams are presented in this paper and their results are compared. All of the competitors' algorithms use evolutionary computation.
