Search Based Software Engineering (SBSE) has proved to be a very effective way of optimising software engineering problems. Nevertheless, its full potential as a means of dynamic adaptivity remains under explored. This paper sets out the agenda for Dynamic Adaptive SBSE, in which the optimisation is embedded into deployed software to create self-optimising adaptive systems. Dynamic Adaptive SBSE will move the research agenda forward to encompass both soft- ware development processes and the software products they produce, addressing the long-standing, and as yet largely unsolved, grand challenge of self-adaptive systems.
