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


* Autonomous test generation with little or no human intervention
* AI/ML for optimized test suites and test cases selection
* AI/ML for prioritization of test cases and test configurations
* Detecting and fixing flaky test cases and scripts
* Autonomous test case repair and maintenance
* Autonomous test suite evolution
* Autonomous test script reuse
* Intelligent test visualization and analytics
* Test impact analysis
* Test result analysis
* Intelligent test execution and validation


* Regular Paper – Submitted papers must be written in English, with the page limit from 6 to 8 pages.
* Short Paper – Submitted papers must be written in English, with a maximum length limit of 4 pages.


The workshop also calls for proposals to present and/or demo tools from industry experts and professionals. These presentations and discussions will help foster better collaborations between the research community and software testing industry.
We invite submissions for industry presentations and tool demonstration in forms of:
* Extended abstract (1-2 pages) - Submitted extended abstracts describe industry advancements, ideas, open problems, thought-leadership content, etc.
* Tool demonstration(1-2 pages) – Submitted tool demonstrations describe a research tool or an industrial tool suite.
