  abstract =     "This paper describes how the massive parallelism of
                 the rapidly reconfigurable Xilinx XC6216 FPGA (in
                 conjunction with Virtual Computing's H.O.T. Works
                 board) can be exploited to accelerate the
                 time-consuming fitness measurement task of genetic
                 algorithms and genetic programming. This acceleration
                 is accomplished by embodying each individual of the
                 evolving population into hardware in order to perform
                 the fitness measurement task. A 16-step sorting network
                 for seven items was evolved that has two fewer steps
                 than the sorting network described in the 1962 O'Connor
                 and Nelson patent on sorting networks (and the same
                 number of steps as a 7-sorter that was devised by Floyd
                 and Knuth subsequent to the patent and that is now
                 known to be minimal). Other minimal sorters have been
