THE DESIGN OF INNOVATION is Here!
- GP Colleagues,
A few weeks ago, I announced the pre-publication of my new book "THE DESIGN
OF INNOVATION: Lessons from and for Competent Genetic Algorithms" from
Kluwer Academic Publishers. The purpose of this note is to let you know
that the book is now available and shipping. Moreover, for a limited time
only, Kluwer is making the book available at a 25% discount.
More information about the book is available at the book web site
http://www-doi.ge.uiuc.edu/. The web site contains a book summary, a table
of contents, and full text of advance praise for DOI from such notables as
John Holland, John Koza, and Lotfi Zadeh. The web site also announces an
8-lecture on-line short course to be available for registration after August
1, 2002. Short course information is also available at
Those individuals seeking an autographed copy of the book can obtain one by
making a contribution to the Illinois Genetic Algorithms Laboratory web site
(http://www-illigal.ge.uiuc.edu/) using the on-line secure Friends of
IlliGAL page (http://www-illigal.ge.uiuc.edu/illigal_friend.php3).
More information about my book and the other books in the Kluwer Series on
Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computation is also available at the
series web site (http://www.wkap.nl/prod/s/GENA).
I hope you will consider joining the growing group of colleagues who are
reading and enjoying "The Design of Innovation" today. Moreover, if you act
before September 1, 2002, you will save 25% off the list price.

Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), which is collocated
this year with KDD (at the Westin), UAI (at the Telus Centre and the
University of Alberta), SARA (at Kananaskis Mountain Lodge), and
ISMB (at the Shaw Centre).
A student picked TDOI up for me at GECCO-2002 and it is truly
excellent and a pleasure to read. I'll post a more detailed review
AAAI-2002 is just wrapping up today, and I'm not sure whether Kluwer
has displays at UAI and SARA, but I expect they will be at ISMB.
One can obtain a conference discount order form that is good for 30
There are also a number of satellite workshops of ISMB (Biopathways
on gene expression modeling; BOSC on bioinformatics software
engineering; Text-Mining on mining textual corpora in
bioinformatics, WEB-02 on bioinformatics education; and Bio-
Ontologies on representations, semistructured data, and markup
languages for computational biology and bioinformatics) that are all
at the Shaw Centre as far as I can tell.
