In the search for binary systems inspiral signal in interferometric gravitational waves detectors, one needs the generation and placement of a grid of templates. We present an original technique for the placement in the associated parameter space, that makes use of the variation of size of the isomatch ellipses in order to reduce the number of templates necessary to cover the parameter space. This technique avoids the potentially expensive computation of the metric at every point, at the cost of having a small number of ``holes in the coverage, representing a few percent of the surface of the parameter space, where the match is slightly lower than specified. A study of the covering efficiency, as well as a comparison with a very simple regular tiling using a single ellipse is made. Simulations show an improvement varying between 6% and 30% for the computing cost in this comparison.
