ICST 2016: Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce ICST 2016, the Ninth IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation. ICST is the premier conference for research in all areas related to software quality. Since modern software applications are increasingly complex and dynamic, it is very difficult to create, analyze, and predict the outcome of software quality assurance activities, and in particular software testing and analysis. The development of a software system involves human judgement and, sometimes, political, legal and social processes. As a result, software testing, verification and validation includes testing, inspections, safety certification, security, privacy and draws upon a wide spectrum of disciplines, including engineering, mathematics and also psychology. Verification and validation touches all aspects of computer science and software engineering research and impacts every software practitioner. ICST seeks to meet these challenges by bringing together researchers and practitioners for a conference that includes all aspects of software testing, verification, and validation. It provides an ideal forum where academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners can present their latest approaches for ensuring the quality of today’s complex software systems, exchange and discuss ideas, and compare experiences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: ---------------------- Testing theory and practice Testing in globally-distributed organizations Model-based testing Model-driven development and testing Domain specific testing, such as: Security testing Web-service testing Database testing Embedded software testing Testing concurrent software Testing large-scale distribute systems Testing in multi-core environments Validation testing Quality assurance Model checking Metrics and Empirical studies Fuzzing Inspections Testing and analysis tools Design for testability Testing education Technology transfer in testing Agile/iterative/incremental testing processes Testing of open source and third-party software Software reliability Performance and QoS testing Standards Formal verification Experience reports Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the ICST Program Committee. Authors of the best papers presented at ICST 2016will be invited to extend their work for possible inclusion in a special issue of Software Testing, Verification, and Reliability, a Wiley journal.
