Genetic Programming Theory and Practice V 15-17 May 2008

This workshop focuses on how theory can inform practice and what practice reveals about theory. The goal is to evaluate the state-of-the-art in genetic programming by discussing different theories and their value to practitioners of the art and to review problems and observations from practice that challenge existing theory.

This will be a small, invitation-only workshop on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The workshop format is informal with plenty of time for discussion.

The papers from the workshop were published as chapters in a book published by Springer (November 2008):
Riolo, Rick, Terence Soule, and Bill Worzel, eds. Genetic Programming Theory and Practice VI. Vol. XIV. Springer, 2009.
