  abstract =     "GENR8 is an architect's design tool that generates
                 surfaces. It is powerful and innovative because it
                 fuses expressively powerful universes of growth
                 languages with evolutionary search. Developed via the
                 API of Alias|Wavefront's Maya, it combines 3D map
                 L-systems, that are extended to an abstract physical
                 environment, with Grammatical Evolution. GENR8
                 addresses key issues arising from exploiting
                 evolutionary adaption within a creative interactive
                 tool framework. EAs typically adapt off-line but GENR8
                 is designed to sensitively accommodate the nature of
                 the back and forth control exchange between user and
                 tool during on-line evolutionary adaptation. It
                 addresses how users may interrupt, intervene and then
                 resume an EA tool. It also forgoes interactive
                 subjective design evaluation for computational
                 multi-criteria evaluation that permits wider search in
                 shorter time spans.",
