Abstract: 
We introduce a multiple subpopulation approach for parallel evolutionary algorithms the migration scheme of which follows a SOM-like dynamics. We succesfully apply this approach to clustering in both VLSI-design and psychotherapy research. The advantages of the approach are shown which consist in a reduced communication overhead between the subpopulations preserving a non-vanishing information flow.
