GPLAB – A Genetic Programming Toolbox for MATLAB
FCT, Universidade de Coimbra –
Genetic Programming (GP) is the automated learning of computer programs. Basically a search process, it is capable of solving complex problems by evolving populations of computer programs, using Darwinian evolution and Mendelian genetics as inspiration.
GPLAB is a Genetic Programming toolbox for MATLAB. Besides most of the traditional functionalities used in GP, it also implements two additional features: (1) a method for automatically adapting the genetic operator probabilities in runtime, allowing the use of the toolbox as a test bench for new genetic operators; (2) several of the best state-of-the-art techniques for controlling the well known bloat problem, including some that result in automatic resizing of the population in runtime to save computational resources. Combining a highly modular and adaptable structure with the concern for automatic setting of most parameters, GPLAB suits all kinds of users, from the layman who wants to use it as a ‘black box’, to the advanced researcher who intends to build and test new functionalities. The toolbox and its documentation are freely available for download at http://gplab.sourceforge.net. The latest version ensures minimal compatibility with Octave.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
