  abstract =     "Hyper-Heuristics is a recent area of research
                 concerned with the automatic design of algorithms. In
                 this paper we propose a grammar-based hyper-heuristic
                 to automate the design of an Evolutionary Algorithm
                 component, namely the parent selection mechanism. More
                 precisely, we present a grammar that defines the number
                 of individuals that should be selected, and how they
                 should be chosen in order to adjust the selective
                 pressure. Knapsack Problems are used to assess the
                 capacity to evolve selection strategies. The results
                 obtained show that the proposed approach is able to
                 evolve general selection methods that are competitive
                 with the ones usually described in the literature.",
