  abstract =     "An adaptive method for fitness evaluation is described
                 that dynamically guides genetic programming to grow and
                 prune program trees. The method is based on the minimum
                 description length principle and evolves parsimonious
                 solutions while preventing premature convergence. The
                 effectiveness of the adaptive fitness functions is
                 shown by evolving neural programs for modelling
                 technical and environmental systems.",
