In this paper, an implementation of vantage point local search procedure for the Bees Algorithm (BA) in combinatorial domains is presented. In its basic version, the BA employs a local search combined with random search for both continuous and combinatorial domains. In this paper, a more robust local searching strategy namely, vantage point procedure is exploited along with random search to deal with complex combinatorial problems. This paper proposes a hybridization technique which involves the Bee Algorithm (BA) and a local search technique based on Vantage Point Tree (VPTs) construction. Following a description of the Vantage Point Bees Algorithm (VPBA), the paper presents the results obtained for several local search strategies for BA, demonstrating efficiency and robustness of the VPBA.
