GP bib URL of your papers before December 1, 2020

As mentioned in my blog posting of 8 June 2020, due to the pandemic, maintenance of the genetic programming bibliography fell behind at the start of this year. I am now pleased to be able to say that I have completed a major new release and would like to encourage everyone to check that their entry in the GP bibliography http://gpbib.cs.ucl.ac.uk/ is up to date and especially that it contains URLs for their GP papers and, if it includes GP, their PhD thesis.

Thank you

The Genetic Programming Bibliography: Move and Mirror

The genetic programming bibliography has been successfully moved
and is since summer 2019 has been hosted by the UCL Computer Science department at
In the long term there may be other hosting arrangements.

Thanks to Jason H. Moore an automated mirror has been established at
http://gpbib.pmacs.upenn.edu hosted by the University of Pennsylvania,
Penn Medicine Academic Computing Services.  Additional mirrors,
perhaps in the far east, may be established (see daily cron job mirror
script http://gpbib.cs.ucl.ac.uk/tools/gpbib_ucl_mirror.bat ).

The bibliography can be search with google, eg:
earthquake site:gpbib.cs.ucl.ac.uk

Due to the pandemic, regular maintenance, especially additions, has
fallen behind in the last few months.  GP authors are invited to send
new references in BibTex, or to suggest updates, e.g. URLs, or
