GPEM 11:3/4, Anniversary Special Issue, FREE for a limited time

I am pleased to announce that the Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines "Tenth Anniversary Issue: Progress in Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines," edited by Julian Miller and Riccardo Poli, is now available online.

This is a really nice special issue containing some excellent summaries of the state of the field and directions in which it is expected to move in the near future.

I am also happy to announce that the entire issue is FREE online for the month of July, 2010. In addition, two of the issue's articles (the one by Koza and the one by Langdon Gustafson) are published under Open Access and will therefore be free forever.

The articles in this issue are:

  1. Since the free download option expires in a few days, I've just sent a bunch of messages on 9 or 10 google and yahoo groups.

  2. RIccardo: Great. BTW although the free download window is closing I've asked Springer about other ways we can promote the issue. Also do note that 2 of the articles are open access even after the free window closes.
