  abstract =     "In this paper we propose a new method for implementing
                 the crossover operator in Genetic Programming (GP)
                 called Semantic Similarity based Crossover (SSC). This
                 new operator is inspired by Semantic Aware Crossover
                 (SAC) [20]. SSC extends SAC by adding semantics to
                 control the change of the semantics of the individuals
                 during the evolutionary process. The new crossover
                 operator is then tested on a family of symbolic
                 regression problems and compared with SAC as well as
                 Standard Crossover (SC). The results from the
                 experiments show that the change of the semantics
                 (fitness) in the new SSC is smoother compared to SAC
                 and SC. This leads to performance improvement in terms
                 of percentage of successful runs and mean best
