  abstract =     "For some problem domains, the evaluation of
                 individuals is significantly more expensive than the
                 other steps in the evolutionary process. Minimizing
                 these evaluations is vital if we want to make genetic
                 programming a viable strategy. In order to minimize the
                 required evaluations, we need to maximize the amount
                 learned from each evaluation. To accomplish this we
                 introduce a new crossover operator for genetic
                 programming, memetic crossover, that allows individuals
                 to imitate the observed success of others. An
                 individual that has done poorly in some parts of the
                 problem may then imitate an individual that did well on
                 those same parts. This results in an intelligent search
                 of the feature-space and, therefore, fewer
