In this paper, a new approach to the topology configuration problem in the Island Model (IM) is proposed. The mechanism proposed works with a pool of candidates for migration and the choice of immigrants is performed using the usual selection techniques of evolutionary algorithms. Computational tests on IM versions of the Differential Evolution show positive effects of the proposed approach in terms of the number of function evaluations required for convergence.
