  abstract =     "Two real-world problems of the medical domain are
                 addressed in this work using a novel approach belonging
                 to the area of neural-symbolic systems. Specifically,
                 we apply evolutionary techniques for the development of
                 neural logic networks of arbitrary length and topology.
                 The evolutionary algorithm is consisted of grammar
                 guided genetic programming using cellular encoding for
                 the representation of neural logic networks into
                 population individuals. The application area is
                 consisted of the diagnosis of patient postoperative
                 treatment and the diagnosis of the Breast cancer. The
                 extracted solutions maintain their interpretability
                 into simple and comprehensible logical rules. The
                 overall system is shown capable to generate arbitrarily
                 connected and interpretable evolved solutions leading
                 to potential knowledge extraction.",
