Software pervasiveness in Modern Systems strongly affects both industry and digital society. As a notable recent example, the proliferation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies is continuously leading to emerging needs and expectations from both software producers and consumers. At the same time, infrastructures, software components, and applications aim to hide their increasing complexity in order to appear more human-centric. However, the potential risk from design errors, poor integration, and time-consuming engineering phases can result in unreliable solutions that can barely meet their intended objectives. In this context, Software Engineering processes keep demanding for the investigation of novel and further refined approaches to Software Quality Assurance (SQA).

Software testing automation is a discipline that has produced noteworthy research in the last decades. The search for solutions to automatically test any concept of software is critical, and it encompasses several areas. These include generating test cases, test oracles, and test doubles (e.g., dummies, stubs, mocks, fakes); defining test selection and prioritization criteria; engineering infrastructures governing and optimizing the execution of testing sessions locally or remotely in the cloud.

The special issue aims to collect high quality contributions concerning research methods, empirical evaluations, or industrial case studies on software test automation. Specifically, the main focus of the special issue is on "Software Quality for Modern Systems" where modern systems include but are not limited to: AI Applications, ML-based Solutions, X-AI Approaches, MultiAgent Systems, Adaptive Systems, Ambient Intelligent Frameworks, Cloud Platforms, Distributed IoT Scenarios, or Blockchain Technologies. Software quality attributes that are covered by the special issue are: robustness, safety, explicability, accountability, reproducibility, trustworthiness, privacy, legal,
and equitable.
