  abstract =     "One of the obstacles to Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs)
                 fulfilling their promise as easy to use general-purpose
                 problem solvers, is the difficulty of correctly
                 configuring them for specific problems such as to
                 obtain satisfactory performance. Having a mechanism for
                 automatically configuring parameters and operators of
                 every stage of the evolutionary life-cycle would give
                 EAs a more widely spread popularity in the non-expert
                 community. This paper investigates automatic
                 configuration of one of the stages of the evolutionary
                 life-cycle, the parent selection, via a new concept of
                 semi-autonomous parent selection, where mate selection
                 operators are encoded and evolved as in Genetic
                 Programming. We compare the performance of the EA with
                 semi-autonomous parent selection to that of a manually
                 configured EA on three common test problems to
                 determine the 'price' we pay for user-friendliness.",
