Search based software testing call for papers

Posted in conference,Software testing by testing in London on January 4, 2010


Search-based software testing is the use of random or directed search techniques (hill climbing, genetic algorithms etc.) to address problems in the software testing and verification and validation domain. There has been an explosion of activity in the search-based software testing field of late, particularly on test data generation. Recent work has also focused on other aspects such as model-based testing, real-time testing, interaction testing, testing of service-oriented architectures, test case prioritization and generation of whole tests (not only test data).

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit full papers (10 pages) to the workshop, describing original research, experience or tools. We will also welcome extended abstracts (2 pages) with new results (that may not yet have empirical support), position papers or far-out ideas. Extended abstracts can also be written to describe testing problems for which we can find search-based solutions during the workshop. We will have a poster session where authors of extended abstracts get feedback, but we will also discuss relevant extended abstracts in the main session.

Papers should address a problem in the software testing and/or verification and validation domain and should approach the solution to the problem using a search strategy. Search-based techniques are taken to include (but are not limited to) random search, local search (i.e. hill climbing, simulated annealing etc.), evolutionary algorithms (i.e. genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, genetic programming), ant colony optimization and particle swarm optimization.

Posted in conference by testing in London on December 19, 2009

From DisCoTec 10

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Languages and Models: new language and modeling concepts for distribution and concurrency including object-oriented, aspect-oriented, reflection, and meta-programming technologies; integration of language and modeling paradigms
  • Semantic Foundations: semantics for different types of languages, including programming languages, modeling languages, and domain specific languages; real-time and probability aspects; type systems and behavioural typing

QAI, an Operational Excellence consulting firm, is running its annual Software Testing Conference (STC) in Bangalore on 19-20/11/09.. The theme is “Leading Continuity and Change”. The testing conference will focus on building a leadership narrative to piece together the three cornerstones of growth and continuity – true commitment, competence and coherence and focus on the ability of the organisations, practitioners and leaders.

With over 600 delegates expected, the conference is a key player in bringing together practitioners and thought leaders from the industry, academia and government, to share ideas and learning in the area of software testing & process improvement.
