Q15.1: What digests are there?

Digests are regulated, moderated, information sources in which many contributions are combined together before being posted out to subscribers, usually on a regular basis (eg. weekly). Mailing lists are listed in Q15.2.

Genetic Algorithm Digest

The GA research community exchanges news, CFP's, etc. through this (approximately weekly) digest, currently moderated by Mitchell Potter and Annie Wu (formerly by Bill Spears). The digest is also posted to the comp.ai.genetic newsgroup.

Artificial Life Digest

This digest no longer appears to exist. In the past, the ALIFE research community exchanged news, CFP's, etc. through this digest, edited by Liane Gabora and Rob Collins of the ARTIFICIAL LIFE Research Group at UCLA. Administrative requests used to go to <alife- REQUEST@cognet.ucla.edu>, and there was an anonymous FTP archive at: ftp://ftp.cognet.ucla.edu/pub/alife/

If anyone knows what happened to this digest, please let us know.

Evolutionary Programming Digest

This digest no longer appears to exist. In the past, the digest was intended to promote discussions on a wide range of technical issues in evolutionary OPTIMIZATION, as well as provide information on upcoming conferences, events, journals, special issues, and other items of interest to the EP community. Discussions on all areas of EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION were welcomed, including ARTIFICIAL LIFE, EVOLUTION STRATEGIEs, and GENETIC ALGORITHMs. The digest was meant to encourage interdisciplinary communications.

The subscription address was <ep-list-REQUEST@magenta.me.fau.edu> The digest was moderated by N. Saravan of Florida Atlantic University.
