  abstract =     "The Age-Layered Population Structure (ALPS) paradigm
                 is a novel meta heuristic for overcoming premature
                 convergence by running multiple instances of a search
                 algorithm simultaneously. When the ALPS paradigm was
                 first introduced it was combined with a generational
                 Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) and the ALPS-EA was shown
                 to work significantly better than a basic EA. Here we
                 describe a version of ALPS with a steady-state EA,
                 which is well suited for use in situations in which the
                 synchronisation constraints of a generational model are
                 not desired. To demonstrate the effectiveness of our
                 version of ALPS we compare it against a basic
                 steady-state EA (BEA) in two test problems and find
                 that it outperforms the BEA in both cases.",
