Talk Abstract
Parallel and Distributed Evolutionary Algorithms

Kenneth De Jong, George Mason University

Although many of our evolutionary algorithms (EAs) are serial algorithms with centralized control mechanisms, there is a growing interest in parallel and decentralized EAs capable of exploiting coarsely and finely grained parallel architectures. This presentation will survey the basic parallel and distributed evolutionary models which have been developed and discuss some of the interesting open issues. Some specific details regarding recent progress on finely grained EAs will be presented.
