  abstract =     "Genetic Improvement Programming (GIP) is concerned
                 with automating the burden of software maintenance, the
                 most costly phase of the software life cycle. We
                 describe Gen-O-Fix, a GIP framework which allows a
                 software system hosted on the Java Virtual Machine to
                 be continually improved (e.g. make better predictions;
                 pass more regression tests; reduce power consumption).
                 It is the first exemplar of a dynamic adaptive GIP
                 framework, i.e. it can improve a system as it runs. It
                 is written in the Scala programming language and uses
                 reflection to yield source-to-source transformation.
                 One of the design goals for Gen-O-Fix was to create a
                 tool that is user-centric rather than
                 researcher-centric: the end-user is required only to
                 provide a measure of system quality and the URL of the
                 source code to be improved. We discuss potential
                 applications to predictive, embedded and
                 high-performance systems.",
