Two new PhD’s

Congratulations to David Lynch and Stefan Forstenlechner who both successfully defended their PhD theses this month on “Automated Self-Optimisation in Heterogeneous Wireless Communications Networks using Techniques from Evolutionary Computation” (Lynch) and “Program Synthesis with Grammars and Semantics in Genetic Programming” (Forstenlechner).

Handbook of Grammatical Evolution

To celebrate 20 years since the first publication on Grammatical Evolution at the First EuroGP in 1998 in Paris, France the original authors and inventors of Grammatical Evolution have joined forces to bring together a collection of chapters contributed by leading researchers in the field of Genetic Programming.
