  abstract =     "We propose and motivate the use of vicinity-risk
                 minimisation (VRM) for training genetic programming
                 classifiers. We demonstrate that VRM has a number of
                 attractive properties and demonstrate that it has a
                 better correlation with generalisation error compared
                 to empirical risk minimisation (ERM) so is more likely
                 to lead to better generalisation performance, in
                 general. From the results of statistical tests over a
                 range of real and synthetic datasets, we further
                 demonstrate that VRM yields consistently superior
                 generalisation errors compared to conventional ERM.",
