This repository contains the LaTeX source code and additional resources for a research paper that was accepted for publication at the 8th International Symposium on Search Based Software Engineering (SSBSE 2016). The source code of the paper uses the LaTeX style files provided by the organizers of the symposium and a wide variety of other packages that are normally standard with a modern LaTeX distribution such a TeXLive 2015.

You are invited to use this repository as a means for learning more about preparing papers in the field of search-based software engineering and as a way to investigate the results and writing in our paper. If you find this repository useful, could we trouble you to star this repository and then acknowledge it in your own research efforts? If you would like to learn more about research in the field of search-based software engineering, then you can check out gkapfham/research-bibliography and AVMf/avm-bibliography. If you would like to download the tool used to conduct the experiments presented in this paper, then please visit the AVMf/avmf repository.
