  abstract =     "This paper investigates the use of genetic programming
                 in automatized synthesis of heuristics for the parallel
                 unrelated machines environment with arbitrary
                 performance criteria. The proposed scheduling heuristic
                 consists of a manually defined meta-algorithm which
                 uses a priority function evolved separately with
                 genetic programming. In this paper, several different
                 genetic programming methods for evolving priority
                 functions, like dimensionally aware genetic
                 programming, genetic programming with iterative
                 dispatching rules and gene expression programming, have
                 been tried out and described. The performance of the
                 suggested approach is compared to existing scheduling
                 heuristics and it is shown that it mostly outperforms
                 them. The described approach could prove useful when
                 used for optimizing scheduling criteria for which no
                 adequate scheduling heuristic exists.",
