The IEEE Third International Conference On Artificial Intelligence
Testing (AITest 2021) is an international conference to provide a
platform for researchers, practitioners, and students to present
research results and exchanges ideas on how to test applications
empowered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how to empower software
testing methodology and techniques with AI. AI technologies are widely
used in computer applications to perform tasks such as monitoring,
forecasting, recommending, prediction, and statistical reporting. They
are deployed in a variety of systems including driverless vehicles,
robot-controlled warehouses, financial forecasting applications, and
security enforcement, and are increasingly integrated with
cloud/fog/edge computing, big data analytics, robotics,
Internet-of-Things, mobile computing, smart cities, smart homes,
intelligent healthcare, etc. Despite this dramatic progress, the
quality assurance of existing AI application development processes is
still far from satisfactory and the demand for being able to show
demonstrable levels of confidence in such systems is growing. Software
testing is a fundamental, effective, and recognized quality assurance
method which has shown its cost-effectiveness to ensure the
reliability of many complex software systems. However, the adaptation
of software testing to the peculiarities of AI applications remains
largely unexplored and needs extensive research to be performed. On
the other hand, the availability of AI technologies provides an
exciting opportunity to improve existing software testing processes,
and recent years have shown that machine learning, data mining,
knowledge representation, constraint optimization, planning,
scheduling, multi-agent systems, etc. have real potential to
positively impact on software testing. Recent years have seen a rapid
growth of interest in testing AI applications as well as the
application of AI techniques to software testing. This conference
provides an international forum for researchers and practitioners to
exchange novel research results, to articulate the problems and
challenges from practices, to deepen our understanding of the subject
area with new theories, methodologies, techniques, processes models,
etc., and to improve the practices with new tools and resources.

TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS
A. Regular Papers (8 Pages) And Short Papers (2 Pages)
Regular papers in this track describe original and significant work or
report on case studies and empirical research, and short papers that
describe late-breaking research results or work in progress with
timely and innovative ideas.


B. AI Testing in Practice Papers (8 Pages)
Papers in this track provide a forum for networking, exchanging ideas,
and innovative or experimental practices to address software
engineering research that impacts directly on practice on software
testing for AI.


C. Tool Demo Papers (4 Pages)
The tool demo track provides a forum to present and demonstrate
innovative tools and/or new benchmarking datasets in the context of
software testing for AI.


FORMAT
All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format using the
IEEE Computer Society Proceedings format (two columns, single-spaced,
10pt font). Papers must not be accepted for publication, or be under
submission to another conference or journal. Each paper will be
reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee, using a
single-blind reviewing procedure. At least one author of the accepted
paper must register for the conference and confirm that she/he will
present the paper in person. The submission site is AITest 2021 at
