                 (CBIR) systems can be improved by combining image
                 features or by weighting image similarities, as
                 computed from multiple feature vectors. However,
                 feature combination do not make sense always and the
                 combined similarity function can be more complex than
                 weight-based functions to better satisfy the users'
                 expectations. We address this problem by presenting a
                 Genetic Programming framework to the design of combined
                 similarity functions. Our method allows nonlinear
                 combination of image similarities and is validated
                 through several experiments, where the images are
                 retrieved based on the shape of their objects.
                 Experimental results demonstrate that the GP framework
                 is suitable for the design of effective combinations
