  abstract =     "The recent availability of cheap Beowulf clusters has
                 generated much interest for Parallel and Distributed
                 Evolutionary Computations (PDEC). Another often
                 neglected source of CPU power for PDEC are networks of
                 PCs, in many case very powerful workstations, that run
                 idle each day for long periods of time. To exploit
                 efficiently both Beowulfs and networks of heterogeneous
                 workstations we argue that the classic master-slave
                 distribution model is superior to the currently more
                 popular island-model. Results obtained with a plausible
                 deployment scenario demonstrate that system performance
                 degrades gracefully when failures occurred, while still
                 achieving near linear speedup in the ideal case.",
