  abstract =     "We proposed a distributed approach for parallelising
                 Genetic Programming on the Internet. The approach
                 harnesses the wealth of computing resources available
                 on the Internet to provide the computing power required
                 by Genetic Programming to solve hard problems. A
                 distributed genetic programming system termed DGP is
                 developed in the Java progamming language to
                 demonstrate the feasibility of our approach. Features
                 of the DGP system include the use of Java Servlets to
                 handle communication between distributed machines and
                 the use of a population pool to facilitate migrations.
                 In addition, the DGP system has an interactive user
                 interface for controlling the run and graphical
                 displays of the evolution process. The DGP system has
                 been implemented live over the Internet and the results
                 prove that the approach is feasible. An experiment was
                 conducted to determine the performance of the DGP
                 system and results showed that the DGP system has a
                 much higher probability of finding solutions than the
                 distributed approaches taken in our previous work and
