Abstract

This extended abstract presents preliminary work on reusable automatically generated heuristics for the 2D strip packing problem. It builds on our previous work, where the heuristics were not shown to be reusable. The best constructive heuristic for this problem in the literature is 'best-fit', and the motivation of this work is to obtain heuristics which are comparable to the performance of this heuristic.
