This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Artificial Evolution, EA 2007, held in Tours, France in October 2007. The 27 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 62 submissions during two rounds of reviewing and improvement. The papers cover all aspects of artificial evolution: genetic programming, swarm intelligence, combinatorial and multi-objective optimization, theory in genetic algorithms and evolutionary systems, as well as applications of evolutionary algorithms.
