  abstract =     "In this work we introduce Templar, a software
                 framework for customising algorithms via the generative
                 technique of template-method hyper-heuristics. We first
                 discuss the need for such an approach, presenting
                 Quicksort as an example. We provide a functional
                 definition of template-method hyper-heuristics,
                 describe how this is implemented by Templar, and show
                 how Templar may be invoked using simple client-code.
                 Finally, we describe experiments using Templar to
                 define a hyper-quicksort with the aim of reducing power
                 consumption. The results demonstrate that the generated
                 algorithm has significantly improved performance on the
                 test set.",
