EC lab Activities
The Genetic Algorithms Group
Under the direction of
Kenneth A. De Jong
George Mason University
, the Genetic Algorithms
Group (GAG) is comprised of students, academicians, and representatives from
industry in the Washington, D.C. metro area who share an interest in evolutionary
computation (EC). Group members are working on a variety of research projects
including EC theory, coevolutionary algorithms, decentralized EAs, representation
issues, the application of EAs to molecular biology, and EA-based machine
GAG meetings tend to be help on Thursdays, but not definitively so.
We arrange meetings when there are members who would like to address
the group about some research project. Below is a list of talks
scheduled in the very near future.
- Thursday, August 14 at 3pm
Topic: Finding multiple solutions with GAs.
Presenters: John Grefenstette
This talk covers some new ideas for modifying GAs to find multiple
distinct solutions to optimization problems.
We maintain a very informal mail list to inform members of upcoming
meetings and other notifications. If you wish to be informed
electronically or are simply interested in learning more about the
Genetic Algorithms Group, contact
