                         search strategies is an effective algorithmic proposal for solving 
                         complex continuous optimization problems. Such hybridization 
                         becomes much more effective when the local search heuristics are 
                         applied in the most promising areas of the solution space. This 
                         paper presents a hybrid method based on Clustering Search (CS) to 
                         solve continuous optimization problems. The CS divides the search 
                         space in clusters, which are composed of solutions generated by a 
                         population meta-heuristic, called Variable Mesh Optimization. Each 
                         cluster is explored further with local search procedures.
