Different tasks in forensic anthropology require the use of three-dimensional models of forensic objects. Since range scanners do not allow to capture the whole object in a single image, multiple scans from different views are needed to supply the information to construct the 3D model. Range image registration methods study the accurate integration of the different views acquired by these scanners. Specifically, pair-wise image registration methods manage every adjacent pair of scanned views. Our proposal is based on the adaptation of a previous work in order to apply the scatter search evolutionary algorithm to pair-wise image registration in forensic anthropology applications. To measure the performance of this adaptation, we design an experimental setup considering some of the most recent and accurate evolutionary techniques for the problem to compose a 3D model of one skull from our Physical Anthropology Lab.
