  abstract =     "This paper introduces a two-stage strategy for
                 multi-class classification problems. The proposed
                 technique is an advancement of tradition binary
                 decomposition method. In the first stage, the
                 classifiers are trained for each class versus the
                 remaining classes. A modified fitness value is used to
                 select good discriminators for the imbalanced data. In
                 the second stage, the classifiers are integrated and
                 treated as a single chromosome that can classify any of
                 the classes from the dataset. A population of such
                 classifier-chromosomes is created from good classifiers
                 (for individual classes) of the first phase. This
                 population is evolved further, with a fitness that
                 combines accuracy and conflicts. The proposed method
                 encourages the classifier combination with good
                 discrimination among all classes and less conflicts.
                 The two-stage learning has been tested on several
                 benchmark datasets and results are found encouraging.",
