  abstract =     "As programmers, we like to think of software as the
                 product of our intelligent design, carefully crafted to
                 meet well-specified goals. In reality, software evolves
                 inadvertently through the actions of many individual
                 programmers, often leading to unanticipated
                 consequences. Large complex software systems are
                 subject to constraints similar to those faced by
                 evolving biological systems, and we have much to gain
                 by viewing software through the lens of evolutionary
                 biology. The talk will highlight recent research that
                 applies the mechanisms of evolution quite directly to
                 the problem of repairing software bugs.",
