  abstract =     "Genetic Programming (GP) and Inductive Logic
                 Programming (ILP) have received increasing interest
                 recently. Since their formalisms are so different,
                 these two approaches cannot be integrated easily though
                 they share many common goals and functionalities. A
                 unification will greatly enhance their problem solving
                 power. In this paper, a framework to combine GP and ILP
                 is presented. The framework is based on a formalism of
                 logic grammars and a system called LOGENPRO (the LOgic
                 grammar based GENetic PROgramming system) is developed.
                 It is so flexible that programs in different
                 programming languages such as LISP, Prolog, and C can
                 be induced. The performance of LOGENPRO in inducing
                 logic programs from noisy examples is also evaluated. A
                 detailed comparison to FOIL and mFOIL has been
                 conducted. The experiment demonstrates that LOGENPRO is
                 a promising alternative to other inductive logic
                 programming systems and sometimes is superior for
                 handling noisy data.",
