  abstract =     "The development and use of genetic programming (GP)
                 software to synthesise true-3D artificial magnetic
                 conductor (AMC) ground planes is presented, with the
                 focus on achieving a lower frequency response
                 (particularly in the high VHF to low UHF bands),
                 low-profile, broadband designs without the use of
                 absorbing or magnetic materials. Metallic 3D patterns
                 are embedded in one or more substrate layers with a PEC
                 bottom, and the patterning in the unit cell is allowed
                 to extend into neighbouring unit cells, thus achieving
                 a lower frequency response with much smaller unit cell
                 size and thickness. Four designs synthesized using the
                 developed GP software are presented with achieved
                 bandwidths ranging from 32.7percent to 71.1percent when
                 using the plus-minus 90 degrees reflection phase
                 criterion. Further, it is shown that through the use of
                 a parametric study, the centre frequency (0 angle
                 reflection phase) of one of the designs can be reduced
                 from 381.3 MHz to 87.8 MHz, which is a 77percent
                 reduction. The edge of the square unit cell size for
                 this miniaturised design is lambda_{0}/51 and the
                 thickness is lambda_{0}/61 at 83.9 MHz.",
