  abstract =     "Network operators are struggling to cope with
                 exponentially increasing demand. Capacity can be
                 increased by densifying existing Macro Cell deployments
                 with Small Cells. The resulting two-tiered architecture
                 is known as a Heterogeneous Network or HetNet.
                 Significant inter-tier interference in channel sharing
                 HetNets is managed by resource interleaving in the time
                 domain. A key task in this regard is scheduling User
                 Equipment to receive data at Small Cells. Grammar-based
                 Genetic Programming (GBGP) is employed to evolve models
                 that map measurement reports to schedules on a
                 millisecond timescale. Two different fitness functions
                 based on evaluative and instructive feedback are
                 compared. The former expresses an industry standard
                 utility of downlink rates. Instructive feedback is
                 obtained by computing highly optimised schedules
                 offline using a Genetic Algorithm, which then act as
                 target semantics for evolving models. This paper also
                 compares two schemes for mapping the GBGP parse trees
                 to Boolean schedules. Simulations show that the
                 proposed system outperforms a state of the art
                 benchmark and is within 17percent of the estimated
                 theoretical optimum. The impressive performance of GBGP
                 illustrates an opportunity for the further use of
                 evolutionary techniques in software-defined wireless
                 communications networks.",
