    The Algorithm Selection Problem seeks to select the most suitable algorithm for a given problem. For solving it, the algorithm selection systems have to face the so-called cold start. It concerns the disadvantage that arises in those cases where the system involved in the selection of the algorithm has not enough information to give an appropriate recommendation. Bearing that in mind, the main goal of this work is two-fold. On the one hand, a novel meta-learning-based approach that allows selecting a suitable algorithm for solving a given logistic problem is proposed. On the other hand, the proposed approach is enabled to work within cold start situations where a tree-structured hierarchy that enables to compare different metric dataset to identify a particular problem or variation is presented.
