Relevant Journals

Evolutionary Computation

Evolutionary Computation is the leading journal in its field. It provides an international forum for facilitating and enhancing the exchange of information among researchers involved in both the theoretical and practical aspects of computational systems drawing their inspiration from nature, with

IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation

IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation publishes archival quality original papers in evolutionary computation and related areas including nature-inspired algorithms, population-based methods, and optimization where selection and variation are integral, and hybrid systems where these paradigms are combined. Purely theoretical papers

Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines

Methods for artificial evolution of active components are rapidly developing branches of adaptive computation and adaptive engineering. They entail the development, evaluation and application of methods that mirror the process of neo-Darwinian evolution. Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines reports innovative
