  abstract =     "Hyper-heuristics is an emergent technology that has
                 proven to be effective at solving real-world problems.
                 The two main categories of hyper-heuristics are
                 selection and generation. Selection hyper-heuristics
                 select existing low-level heuristics while generation
                 hyper-heuristics create new heuristics. At the
                 inception of the field single point searches were
                 essentially employed by selection hyper-heuristics,
                 however as the field progressed evolutionary algorithms
                 are becoming more prominent. Evolutionary algorithms,
                 namely, genetic programming, have chiefly been used for
                 generation hyper-heuristics. Implementing evolutionary
                 algorithm hyper-heuristics can be quite a
                 time-consuming task which is daunting for first time
                 researchers and practitioners who want to rather focus
                 on the application domain the hyper-heuristic will be
                 applied to which can be quite complex. This paper
                 presents a Java toolkit for the implementation of
                 evolutionary algorithm hyper-heuristics, namely,
                 EvoHyp. EvoHyp includes libraries for a genetic
                 algorithm selection hyper-heuristic (GenAlg), a genetic
                 programming generation hyper-heuristic (GenProg), a
                 distributed version of GenAlg (DistrGenAlg) and a
                 distributed version of GenProg (DistrGenProg). The
                 paper describes the libraries and illustrates how they
                 can be used. The ultimate aim is to provide a toolkit
                 which a non-expert in evolutionary algorithm
                 hyper-heuristics can use. The paper concludes with an
                 overview of future extensions of the toolkit.",
