The work presented here is intended as an evolu- tionary task-specific module for referring expres- sion generation and aggregation to be enclosed in a generic flexible architecture. Appearances of con- cepts are considered as genes, each one encoding the type of reference used. Three genetic opera- tors are used: classic crossover and mutation, plus a specific operator dealing with aggregation. Fit- ness functions are defined to achieve elementary coherence and stylistic validity. Experiments are described and discussed.
