Summary:     In this paper, an algorithm for the automatic selection of an ad-equate test for the survival curves comparison is developed. Theintroduced procedure is an adaptation of the double minimum algo-rithm for the bandwidth selection in the smoothed nonparametrick-sample tests. The simulation study which was carried out, sug-gests us that the proposed method, although never is as good as thebest one of the considered tests, is the most regular of them.
