Grammar-based methods have been widely used to control search in Genetic Programming and related fields; meanwhile, evolutionary methods have become important in grammar learning, in both practical application, and as a means to understand the processes of language acquisition. A small number of systems combine both aspects, learning grammars to control evolutionary search spaces. The possibilities for cross-fertilisation are immense. The aim of this special session is to bring people from all these areas together, in order to foster innovative research on the interactions of grammars, evolutionary and other natural computing systems.Scope:
We invite contributions on all aspects of Grammars in Natural Computing, including (but not limited to) the following areas:
