From Ant Colonies to Artificial Ants (ANTS'98),
the 1st Int. Workshop on Ant Colony Optimization, will be held
in Brussels on 15-16Oct98. It's about models of ant behavior,
plus a growing number of Ant Colony Optimization (ACO)
distributed algorithms -- clustering, sorting, traveling
salesman, telecom routing -- inspired by ant behavior.

John Koza is collecting a list of genetic-programming
"technique extensions," dissertations, and books for his
Genetic Programming III book. He wants techniques that move
GP toward automatic programming, or that have extended the
mechanics and techniques of GP. (In other words, not just
great applications.) Check with to see
if your work has been overlooked. [genetic-programming, 24Feb98.
