  abstract =     "This paper presents a new robust master-slave
                 distribution architecture for multiple populations
                 Evolutionary Computations (EC). It discusses the main
                 advantages and drawbacks of master-slave models over
                 island models for parallel and distributed EC. It also
                 formulates a mathematical model of the master-slave
                 distribution policies in order to show that, contrary
                 to what is implied by current mainstream developments
                 in island models, a well designed master-slave approach
                 can be both robust and scalable (up to a certain
                 point). Finally, it introduces some of the details of a
                 new {C++} framework named Distributed BEAGLE, which
                 implements this architecture over the Open BEAGLE EC
