  abstract =     "This work presents a new evolutionary ensemble method
                 for data classification, which is inspired by the
                 concepts of bagging and boosting, and aims at combining
                 their good features while avoiding their weaknesses.
                 The approach is based on a distributed
                 multiple-population genetic programming (GP) algorithm
                 which exploits the technique of coevolution at two
                 levels. On the inter-population level the populations
                 cooperate in a semi-isolated fashion, whereas on the
                 intrapopulation level the candidate classifiers
                 coevolve competitively with the training data samples.
                 The final classifier is a voting committee composed by
                 the best members of all the populations. The
                 experiments performed in a varying number of
                 populations show that our approach outperforms both
                 bagging and boosting for a number of benchmark
