  abstract =     "Plague, a new technique that allows Genetic
                 Programming to save computing resources, has been
                 proposed. By removing some individuals every
                 generation, plague aims at compensating for the
                 increase in size of individuals, thus saving computing
                 time when looking for solutions. By means of some test
                 problems, we show that the technique is also useful
                 when employing a parallel version of GP, such as that
                 based on the island model.",
