  abstract =     "Software Product Lines (SPLs) are families of related
                 software systems that provide different combinations of
                 features. Extensive research and application attest to
                 the significant economical and technological benefits
                 of employing SPL practices. However, there are still
                 several challenges that remain open. Salient among them
                 is reverse engineering SPLs from existing variants of
                 software systems and their subsequent evolution. In
                 this paper, we aim at sketching connections between
                 research on these open SPL challenges and ongoing work
                 on Genetic Improvement. Our hope is that by drawing
                 such connections we can spark the interest of both
                 research communities on the exciting synergies at the
                 intersection of these subject areas.",
