  abstract =     "Search Based Software Engineering has high potential
                 for optimising non-functional properties such as
                 execution time or power consumption. However, many
                 non-functional properties are dependent not only on the
                 software system under consideration but also the
                 environment that surrounds the system. This
                 necessitates a support for online, in situ
                 optimisation. This paper introduces the novel concept
                 of amortised optimisation which allows such online
                 optimisation. The paper also presents two case studies:
                 one that seeks to optimise JIT compilation, and another
                 to optimise a hardware dependent algorithm. The results
                 show that, by using the open source libraries we
                 provide, developers can improve the speed of their
                 Python script by up to 8.6percent with virtually no
                 extra effort, and adapt a hardware dependent algorithm
                 automatically for unseen CPUs.",
