  abstract =     "The design of efficient algorithms for difficult
                 combinatorial optimisation problems remains a
                 challenging field. Many heuristic, meta-heuristic and
                 hyper-heuristic methods exist. In the specialized
                 literature, it is observed that for some problems, the
                 combined algorithms have better computational
                 performance than individual performance. However, the
                 automatic combination of the existing methods or the
                 automatic design of new algorithms has received less
                 attention in the literature. In this study, a method to
                 automatically design algorithms is put into practice
                 for two optimisation problems of recognised
                 computational difficulty: the travelling salesman
                 problem and the automatic clustering problem. The new
                 algorithms are generated by means of genetic
                 programming and are numerically evaluated with sets of
                 typical instances for each problem. From an initial
                 population of randomly generated algorithms, a
                 systematic convergence towards the better algorithms is
                 observed after a few hundred generations. Numerical
                 results obtained from the evaluation of each of the
                 designed algorithms suggest that for each set of
                 instances with similar characteristics, specialized
                 algorithms are required.",
