  abstract =     "Evolutionary Computation (EC) introduces a new
                 paradigm for solving problems in Artificial
                 Intelligence, representing solution candidates as
                 individuals and evolving them based on Darwin's Theory
                 of Natural Selection. Genetic Algorithms (GA) and
                 Genetic Programming (GP), two important EC techniques,
                 have been successfully applied both in theoretical
                 scenarios and practical situations. This work discusses
                 an issue of great relevance and impact on this type of
                 algorithm: the automatic adjustment of the parameters
                 that control the search process. Based on a recent
                 research, a method that controls the population size in
                 a GA is adapted and implemented in GP. A series of
                 classic experiments has been performed before and after
                 the modifications, showing that this method can improve
                 the algorithms' robustness and reliability. The data
                 allow a discussion about the method and the importance
                 of the adaptation of parameters in EC algorithms.",
