The fourth evolutionary/adaptive computing conference at the University of Plymouth again explores the utility of various evolutionary/adaptive search algorithms and complementary computational intelligence techniques within design and manufacturing. The content of the following chapters represents a selection of the diverse set of papers presented at the conference that relate to both engineering design and also to more general design areas. This expansion has been the result of a conscious effort to recognise generic problem areas and complementary research across a wide range of design and manufacture activity. There has been a major increase in both research into and utilisation of evolutionary and adaptive systems within the last two years. This is reflected in the establishment of major annual joint US genetic and evolutionary computing conferences and the introduction of a large number of events relating to the application of these technologies in specific fields. The Plymouth conference remains a long-standing. event both as ACDM and as the earlier ACEDC series. The conference maintains its policy of single stream presentation and associated poster and demonstrator sessions. The event retains the support of several UK Engineering Institutions and is now recognised by the International Society for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation as a mainstream event. It continues to attract an international audience of leading researchers and practitioners in the field.
