  abstract =     "Classification is a relevant task in the cyber
                 security domain, but it must be able to cope with
                 unbalanced and/or incomplete datasets and must also
                 react in real-time to changes in the data. Ensemble of
                 classifiers are a useful tool for classification in
                 hard domains as they combine different classifiers that
                 together provide complementary information. However,
                 most of the ensemble-based algorithms require an
                 extensive training phase and need to be re-trained in
                 case of changes in the data.

                 This work proposes a Genetic Programming-based
                 framework to generate a function for combining an
                 ensemble, having some interesting properties: the
                 models composing the ensemble are trained only on a
                 portion of the training set, and then, they can be
                 combined and used without any extra phase of training;
                 furthermore, in case of changes in the data, the
                 function can be recomputed in an incrementally way,
                 with a moderate computational effort.

                 Experiments conducted on unbalanced datasets and on a
                 well-known cyber-security dataset assess the goodness
                 of the approach.",
