Research in the area of Search-Based Software Engineering (SBSE) has flourishedA�in the last years. This Summer School aims to present current research inA�different topics of SBSE research organized in a series of exciting keynotes,A�talks and seminars followed by questions and debate. TheA�Summer School is openA�to participants from both Academy and Industry all around the world. WeA�particularly encourage graduates and postgraduates (especially, PhD students),A�as well as researchers and professionals interested in SBSE to join us andA�participate in the event.

The Second International Summer School on Search-Based Software Engineering (SS-SBSE 2017) is supported by SEBASENetA�(the Spanish Excellence Network on Search-BasedA�Software Engineering), SISTEDESA� (Spanish Society ofA�Software Engineering and Software Development Technologies), and it is hosted by the NEO Research GroupA�at the University of Malaga, Spain.

We hope that this will contribute to foster collaboration within this growing community of practitioners, to strengthen interactions, and increase the quality of our current and future SBSE research. Welcome to the SecondA�International Summer School on Search-Based Software Engineering and see you all soon in MA?laga, Spain!
