 EuroGP 2001 18-20 April 2001
 Lake Como (Milan), Italy

EuroGP2001 -- 4th European Conference on Genetic Programming

Registration is now available at :

There is just a single registration for EuroGP2001 and
EvoWorkshops2001, which includes attendance at all sessions over the
three days. There is a substantial discount on registrations made
before March 15.

A complete list of oral and poster presentations is available at :

Genetic programming:(noun) 1. a means of automatically generating
computer programs to perform certain tasks, in which the principles of
Darwinian natural selection are used to drive adaptation and
learning. 2. a robust and flexible automated procedure ideally suited
for design, pattern recognition and control problems.

EuroGP2001:(noun) 1. the largest European event entirely devoted to
Genetic Programming. 2. an annual conference frequented by a lively
and diverse population of researchers and practitioners. 3. a forum
for intellectual exchange - a breeding ground, where ideas recombine
and mutate, and where new developments are presented. 4. the next
iteration of the GP meta-algorithm.

GP applications areas:(phrase) 1. those areas of human activity in
which theoretical research into genetic programming has been
successfully applied, as for example: financial data mining, robotic
and engineering control, signal and image processing, electronic
circuit synthesis, bio-informatics, engineering design, music and
art. 2. areas that broadly mirror the range of current scientific
endeavour - from gene sequencing to satellite imaging and the design
of control systems for humanoid robots.

human competitive results:(phrase) 1. in the case of genetic
programming, results that offer the best available solution, or are
equivalent or superior to results produced by humans. 2. for genetic
programming an informal benchmark used to establish the effectiveness
and utility of the technique.

topics of interest:(phrase) 1. fundamental issues within the field of
genetic programming, as for example: scalability, code bloat,
performance measures, automatic modularisation and code reuse. 2. new
theoretical findings. 3. novel applications.

Lake Como:(noun) 1. area of outstanding natural and tranquil beauty,
within easy reach of Milan. 2. region famed for medieval architecture,
and archaeological and artistic museums. 3. location for EuroGP2000.

previous events:(phrase)
1. EuroGP98 in Paris.
2. EuroGP99 in Goteburg.
3. EuroGP2000 in Edinburgh.
