From the reviews:

"This is a diverse collection of eleven papers that share the common theme of posing open problems and pointing out possible directions of future research, all written by leading researchers in the field of evolutionary computation (EC). ... A good starting point for readers who are not familiar with evolutionary computation is provided ... . A different approach taken by several authors is the combination of EC with different fields with the aim of enriching and developing EC theory." (Thomas Jansen, Mathematical Reviews, 2005f)
