             abstract = "The efficiency in image classification tasks can be improved using 
                         combined information provided by several sources, such as shape, 
                         color, and texture visual properties. Although many works proposed 
                         to combine different feature vectors, we model the descriptor 
                         combination as an optimization problem to be addressed by 
                         evolutionary-based techniques, which compute distances between 
                         samples that maximize their separability in the feature space. The 
                         robustness of the proposed technique is assessed by the 
                         Optimum-Path Forest classifier. Experiments showed that the 
                         proposed methodology can outperform individual information 
                         provided by single descriptors in well-known public datasets.",
