  abstract =     "Writing software is a difficult and expensive task.
                 Its automation is hence very valuable. Search
                 algorithms have been successfully used to tackle many
                 software engineering problems. Unfortunately, for some
                 problems the traditional techniques have been of only
                 limited scope, and search algorithms have not been used
                 yet. We hence propose a novel framework that is based
                 on a co-evolution of programs and test cases to tackle
                 these difficult problems.This framework can be used to
                 tackle software engineering tasks such as automatic
                 refinement, fault correction,improving non-functional
                 criteria and reverse engineering.While the programs
                 evolve to accomplish one of these tasks, test cases are
                 co-evolved at the the same time to find new faults in
                 the evolving programs.",
