Recently, Genetic Programming (GP) and related soft computing methods have gained significant attention from the research community. They have been used to solve various real-world problems, such as problems related to scheduling, transportation, electrical engineering, and many other domains. The reason for their popularity lies in their flexibility and ability to obtain high-quality solutions to complex machine learning and optimization problems in a reasonable amount of time. Recent trends in this area include the study of multi-objective optimization, the application of hyper-heuristics for various combinatorial optimization problems, and solving large-scale and difficult real-world problems. Due to the wide range of applications, as well as the recent advances made in the field of genetic programming and soft computing, it is expected that this area of research will continue to attract the attention of the research community and lead to new significant advances.
This Special Issue provides an opportunity for researchers to publish their new work in the field of genetic programming and soft computing. Relevant research should apply solution approaches that incorporate genetic programming and metaheuristics (evolutionary computation, local search methods) as well as soft computing techniques (neural networks, fuzzy systems). Submissions dealing with novel algorithms, improvements or hybridization of existing methods, application of relevant methods to various problems, and surveys of existing literature are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
