2018 Handbook of Heuristics  
We present a general picture of the parallel meta-heuristic search for optimization. We recall the main concepts and strategies in designing parallel metaheuristics, pointing to a number of contributions that instantiated them for neighborhoodand population-based meta-heuristics, and identify trends and promising research directions. We focus on cooperation-based strategies, which display remarkable performances, in particular on asynchronous cooperation and advanced cooperation strategies that
