8th IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) 2015 Graz

  • Conference Call
  • We are pleased to announce ICST 2015, the 8th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation which will take place in Graz, Austria on April 13 – 17, 2015 and is organised by the Graz University of Technology (TU Graz). ICST is the premier conference for research in all areas related to software quality.

    The ever increasing complexity, ubiquity, and dynamism of modern software systems is making software quality assurance activities, and in particular software testing and analysis, more challenging. 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.

    Call for Research Papers

    We invite the submission of high-​quality papers in all areas of software testing, verification, and validation. Research papers should present original and significant work that advances the state of the art. Industrial experience reports present real world experience from which others can benefit. Tool demonstrations are also welcome, especially those openly available for others to use. Finally, we are seeking tutorials that are relevant to both practitioners and researchers. See the specific calls for more details.

    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 2015 will be invited to extend their work for possible inclusion in a special issue of Software Testing, Verification, and Reliability, a Wiley journal.
