  abstract =     "This paper proposes a new evolutionary algorithm-based
                 methodology for optimal crowd evacuation planning. In
                 the proposed methodology, a heuristic-based evacuation
                 scheme is firstly introduced. The key idea is to divide
                 the region into a set of sub-regions and use a
                 heuristic rule to dynamically recommend an exit to
                 agents in each sub-region. Then, an evolutionary
                 framework based on the Cartesian Genetic Programming
                 algorithm and an agent-based crowd simulation model is
                 developed to search for the optimal heuristic rule. By
                 considering dynamic environment features to construct
                 the heuristic rule and using multiple scenarios for
                 training, the proposed methodology aims to find generic
                 and efficient heuristic rules that perform well on
                 different scenarios. The proposed methodology is
                 applied to guide people's evacuation behaviours in six
                 different scenarios. The simulation results demonstrate
                 that the heuristic rule offered by the proposed method
                 is effective to reduce the crowd evacuation time on
                 different scenarios.",
