Genetic programming is an automatic programming technique for evolving computer programs that solve (or approximately solve) problems. Starting with a primordial ooze of thousands of randomly created computer programs, a population of programs is progressively evolved over many generations using the Darwinian principle of survival of the fittest, a sexual recombination operation, and occasional mutation.
The first annual genetic programming conference in 1996 featured 15 tutorials, 2 invited speakers, 3 parallel tracks, 73 papers, and 17 poster papers in proceedings book, and 27 late-breaking papers in a separate book distributed to conference attendees, and 288 attendees. A description of GP-96 appears in the October 1996 issue of Scientific American (http://www.sciam.com/WEB/1096issue/1096techbus3.html). This second annual conference in 1997 reflects the rapid growth of this field in which over 600 technical papers have been published since 1992. For August 5, 1996 article in E. E. Times on GP-96 conference and August 12, 1996 article in E. E Times on John Holland's invited speech at GP-96, go to http://www.techweb.com/search/search.html
Topics at the Second Annual Genetic Programming Conference to be held on July 13 - 16 (Sunday - Wednesday), 1997 at Stanford University include, but are not limited to, applications of genetic programming, theoretical foundations of genetic programming, implementation issues, technique extensions, cellular encoding, evolvable hardware, evolvable machine language programs, automated evolution of program architecture, evolution and use of mental models, automatic programming of multi-agent strategies, distributed artificial intelligence, auto-parallelization of algorithms, automated circuit synthesis, automatic programming of cellular automata, induction, system identification, control, automated design, data and image compression, image analysis, pattern recognition, molecular biology applications, grammar induction, and parallelization. Papers describing recent developments are also solicited in the following additional areas: genetic algorithms, classifier systems, evolutionary programming and evolution strategies, artificial life and evolutionary robotics, DNA computing, and evolvable hardware.
