  abstract =     "The Operator Equalisation (OE) family of bloat control
                 methods have achieved promising results in many
                 domains. In particular, the Flat-OE method, that
                 promotes a flat distribution of program sizes, is one
                 of the simplest OE methods and achieves some of the
                 best results. However, Flat-OE, like all OE variants,
                 can be computationally expensive. This work proposes a
                 simplified strategy for bloat control based on Flat-OE.
                 In particular, bloat is studied in the NeuroEvolution
                 of Augmenting Topologies (NEAT) algorithm. NEAT
                 includes a very simple diversity preservation technique
                 based on speciation and fitness sharing, and it is
                 suggested that with some minor tuning, speciation in
                 NEAT can promote a flat distribution of program size.
                 Results indicate that this is the case in two benchmark
                 problems, in accordance with results for Flat-OE. In
                 conclusion, NEAT provides a worthwhile strategy that
                 could be extrapolated to other GP systems, for
                 effective and simple bloat control.",
