  abstract =     "Motivated by difficulties in engineering adaptive
                 distributed systems, we consider a method to evolve
                 cooperation in swarms to model dynamical systems. We
                 consider an information processing swarm model that we
                 find to be useful in studying control methods for
                 adaptive distributed systems and attempt to evolve
                 systems that form consistent patterns through the
                 interaction of constituent agents or particles. This
                 model considers artificial ants as walking sensors in
                 an information-rich environment. Grammatical Evolution
                 is combined with this swarming model as we evolve an
                 ant's response to information. The fitness of the swarm
                 depends on information processing by individual ants,
                 which should lead to appropriate macroscopic spatial
                 and/or temporal patterns. We discuss three primary
                 issues, which are tractability, representation and
                 fitness evaluation of dynamical systems and show how
                 Grammatical Evolution supports a promising approach to
                 addressing these concerns",
