# Five papers accepted at the 14th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature (PPSN XIV)

With four accepted papers each, Tobias Friedrich and Timo Kötzing are the most prolific authors at this years International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature (PPSN XIV). PPSN is a biennial conference that brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of Natural Computing. Our group published the following papers at PPSN this year.

Our paper **Emergence of Diversity and its Benefits for Crossover in Genetic Algorithms** is nominated for the best paper award.
