  abstract =     "Evolutionary computation is a promising artificial
                 intelligence field involving the simulation of natural
                 evolution to solve problems. Given its implicit
                 parallelism and high computational requirements,
                 evolutionary computation is the perfect candidate for
                 high performance parallel computers. This paper
                 presents Distributed BEAGLE, a new master-slave
                 architecture for parallel and distributed evolutionary
                 computations. It is designed as a robust, adaptive, and
                 scalable system targeted for local networks of
                 workstations and Beowulf clusters. Results obtained
                 with a plausible deployment scenario demonstrate that
                 system performance degrades gracefully when failures
                 occurred, while still achieving near linear speedup in
                 the ideal case.",
