  abstract =     "We describe a new Genetic Programming system called
                 EC-Star. It is supported by an open infrastructure,
                 commercial-volunteer-client parallelisation framework.
                 The framework enables robust and massive-scale
                 evolution and motivates the hub and spoke network
                 topology of EC-Star's distributed GP model. In this
                 model an Evolution Coordinator occupies the hub and an
                 Evolutionary Engine occupies each spoke. The Evolution
                 Coordinator uses a layered framework to dispatch high
                 performing, partially evaluated candidate solutions for
                 additional fitness-case exposure, genetic mixing, and
                 evolution to its Evolutionary Engines. It operates
                 asynchronously with each Evolutionary Engine and never
                 blocks waiting for results from an Evolutionary
