Abstract The first Cross-domain Heuristic Search Challenge (CHeSC 2011) seeks to bring together practitioners from operational research, computer science and artificial intelligence who are interested in developing more generally applicable search methodologies. The challenge is to design a search algorithm that works well, not only across different instances of the same problem, but also across different problem domains. This article overviews the main features of this challenge.
