We document the program and the immediate outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 18052 "Genetic Improvement of Software". The seminar brought together researchers in Genetic Improvement (GI) and related areas of software engineering to investigate what is achievable with current technology and the current impediments to progress and how GI can affect the software development process. Several talks covered the state-of-the-art and work in progress. Seven emergent topics have been identified ranging from

Four by participants of the seminar will be presented at the GI workshop co-located with the top conference in software engineering -ICSE. Several researchers started new collaborations, results of which we hope to see in the near future.
