      abstract =  "Grammars have attracted the attention of researchers
         within the Evolutionary Computation field, specially
         from the Genetic Programming community. The most
         successful example of the use of grammars by GP is
         Grammatical Evolution (GE). In spite of being widely
         used by practitioners of different fields, GE is not
         free from drawbacks. The ones that are most commonly
         pointed out are those linked with redundancy and
         locality of the representation. To address these
         limitations Structured Grammatical Evolution (SGE) was
         proposed, which introduces a one-to-one mapping between
         the genotype and the non-terminals. In SGE the input
         grammar must be pre-processed so that recursion is
         removed, and the maximum number of expansion
         possibilities for each symbol determined. This has been
         pointed out as a drawback of SGE and to tackle it we
         introduce Dynamic Structured Grammatical Evolution
         (DSGE). In DSGE there is no need to pre-process the
         grammar, as it is expanded on the fly during the
         evolutionary process, and thus we only need to define
         the maximum tree depth. Additionally, it only encodes
         the integers that are used in the genotype to phenotype
         mapping, and grows as needed during evolution.
         Experiments comparing DSGE with SGE show that DSGE
         performance is never worse than SGE, being
         statistically superior in a considerable number of the
         tested problems.",

      abstract =  "Structured grammatical evolution (SGE) is a new
         genotypic representation for grammatical evolution
         (GE). It comprises a hierarchical organization of the
         genes, where each locus is explicitly linked to a
         non-terminal of the grammar being used. This one-to-one
         correspondence ensures that the modification of a gene
         does not affect the derivation options of other
         non-terminals. We present a comprehensive set of
         optimization results obtained with problems from three
         different categories: symbolic regression, path
         finding, and predictive modelling. In most of the
         situations SGE outperforms standard GE, confirming the
         effectiveness of the new representation. To understand
         the reasons for SGE enhanced performance, we scrutinize
         its main features. We rely on a set of static measures
         to model the interactions between the representation
         and variation operators and assess how they influence
         the interplay between the genotype-phenotype spaces.
         The study reveals that the structured organization of
         SGE promotes an increased locality and is less
         redundant than standard GE, thus fostering an effective
         exploration of the search space.",

      abstract =  "Grammars have attracted the attention of researchers
         within the Evolutionary Computation field, specially
         from the Genetic Programming community. The most
         successful example of the use of grammars by GP is
         Grammatical Evolution (GE). In spite of being widely
         used by practitioners of different fields, GE is not
         free from drawbacks. The ones that are most commonly
         pointed out are those linked with redundancy and
         locality of the representation. To address these
         limitations Structured Grammatical Evolution (SGE) was
         proposed, which introduces a one-to-one mapping between
         the genotype and the non-terminals. In SGE the input
         grammar must be pre-processed so that recursion is
         removed, and the maximum number of expansion
         possibilities for each symbol determined. This has been
         pointed out as a drawback of SGE and to tackle it we
         introduce Dynamic Structured Grammatical Evolution
         (DSGE). In DSGE there is no need to pre-process the
         grammar, as it is expanded on the fly during the
         evolutionary process, and thus we only need to define
         the maximum tree depth. Additionally, it only encodes
         the integers that are used in the genotype to phenotype
         mapping, and grows as needed during evolution.
         Experiments comparing DSGE with SGE show that DSGE
         performance is never worse than SGE, being
         statistically superior in a considerable number of the
         tested problems.",

         and not surprisingly, they have attracted the attention
         of Evolutionary Computation (EC) researchers to enforce
         problem restrictions. Context-Free-Grammar GP (CFG-GP)
         established the foundations for the application of
         grammars in Genetic Programming (GP), whilst
         Grammatical Evolution (GE) popularised the use of these
         approaches, becoming one of the most used GP variants.
         However, studies have shown that GE suffers from issues
         that have impact on its performance. To minimise these
         issues, several extensions have been proposed, which
         made the distinction between GE and CFG-GP less
         noticeable. Another direction was followed by
         Structured Grammatical Evolution (SGE) that maintains
         the separation between genotype and phenotype from GE,
         but overcomes most of its issues. Our goal is to
         perform a comparative study between CFG-GP, GE and SGE
         to examine their relative performance. The results show
         that in most of the selected benchmarks, CFG-GP and SGE
         have a similar performance, showing that SGE is a good
         alternative to GE.",

         environments and study their performance using three
         dynamic benchmark problems, from the areas of Symbolic
         Regression, Classification and Path Planning.
         Furthermore, we apply the best algorithm we found in
         the navigation of an Erratic Robot through a dynamic
         Santa Fe Ant Trail and compare its performance to the
         standard GP algorithm. The results, statistically

      abstract =  "Maritime domain awareness deals with the situational
         understanding of maritime activities that could impact
         the security, safety, economy or environment. It
         enables quick threat identification, informed decision
         making, effective action support, knowledge sharing and
         more accurate situational awareness. In this paper, we
         propose a novel computational intelligence framework,
         based on genetic programming, to predict the position
         of vessels, based on information related to the vessels
         past positions in a specific time interval. Given the
         complexity of the task, two well known improvements of
         genetic programming, namely geometric semantic
         operators and linear scaling, are integrated in a new
         and sophisticated genetic programming system. The work
         has many objectives, for instance assisting more
         quickly and effectively a vessel when an emergency
         arises or being able to chase more efficiently a vessel
         that is accomplishing illegal actions. The proposed
         system has been compared to two different versions of
         genetic programming and three non-evolutionary machine
         learning methods, outperforming all of them on all the
         studied test cases.",
