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 is 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 are compiled in an annual book published by Springer. Information about previous workshops can be found by clicking the above link.

The Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter (ICAM-I2CAM) is a distributed experiment-based multi-institutional partnership whose purpose is to identify major new research themes in complex adaptive matter--the search for an understanding of emergent behavior in hard, soft, and living matter.
UM's ICAM's goal is to help encourage the formation of a coherent community of researchers on campus grouped around the general theme of complexity, emergence, and collective effects. Information about our annual ICAM/CSCS symposia can be found by clicking the above link.
