AUST 2022 : The First Workshop on Autonomous Software Testing (co-located with ASE 2022)
Call For Papers
We have recently seen a shifting paradigm from Test Automation to Autonomous Software Testing (AUST). While Test Automation aims to automate the important tasks in a software testing process, Autonomous Software Testing aims to make the process as full control, decision making, and operation by the machine. This paradigm shift has been made possible due to the advances in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
The First Workshop on Autonomous Software Testing is a forum for researchers and industry experts and professionals to share recent advancements and discuss future directions and opportunities towards more autonomous software testing approaches and tools. The workshop will feature paper and tool presentations as well as a panel discussion shared by researchers and experts in the field of software testing.
July 22, 2022: Deadline for abstract and paper submission.
August 12, 2022: Notification of acceptance.
September 2, 2022: Camera-ready submission.
October 10, 2022: Autonomous Software Testing Workshop
