This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of three workshops on the application of evolutionary programming and algorithms in various domains; these workshops were held in conjunction with the 5th European Conference on Genetic Programming, EuroGP 2002, in Kinsale, Ireland, in April 2002.
The 33 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected by the respective program committees. In accordance with the three workshops EvoCOP, EvoIASP, and EvoSTIM/EvoPLAN, the papers are organized in topical sections on combinatorial optimization problems; image analysis and signal processing; and scheduling, timetabling, and AI planning.
