ABSTRACT
In this paper a modification of a standard parallel ge­
netic algorithm (SPGA) is introduced which can be
run efficiently on different types of parallel comput­
ers. The purpose of the algorithm is to find optimal
morphological filters for grey scale image processing
tasks. The structure of the developed General Par­
allel Genetic Algorithm (GPGA) is based on a new
subpopulation model which uses an integral load bal­
ancing and soft synchronization mechanism. It is de­
signed to lead to good parallelization efficiencies even
on distributed workstation clusters with multi­user
operating systems. This is especially important for
