Call For Papers

VST 2023 -- 6th International Workshop on
Validation, Analysis and Evolution of Software Tests

March 21, 2023 - co-located with SANER 2023, Macau, China


Software projects accumulate large sets of test cases, encoding valuable expert
knowledge about the software under test to the extent of many person years.
Over time the reliability of the tests decreases, and they become difficult to
understand and maintain. Extra effort is required for repairing broken tests
and for adapting test suites and models to evolving software systems.

The International Workshop on Validation, Analysis and Evolution of Software
Tests (VST) is a unique event bringing together academics, industrial
researchers, and practitioners for exchanging experiences, solutions and new
ideas in applying methods, techniques and tools from software analysis,
evolution and re-engineering to advance the state of the art in test
development and maintenance.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Test minimization and simplification
* Fault localization and automated repair
* Change analysis for software tests
* Test visualization and validation
* Documentation analysis
* Bug report analysis
* Test evolution
* Test case generation
* Model-based testing
* Combinations of the topics above


We encourage submission of papers on the topics mentioned above: Full papers (8 pages
maximum), position papers and tool demonstration papers (2 to 4 pages maximum).
Papers must conform to the IEEE proceedings paper format guidelines. If the paper is
accepted, at least one author must attend the workshop and present the paper. Accepted
papers will be published in the IEEE Digital Library along with the SANER proceedings.

Submission via EasyChair:

Program chairs:

Rudolf Ramler, Software Competence Center Hagenberg GmbH, Austria
Christian Macho, University of Klagenfurt, Austria
Martin Pinzger, University of Klagenfurt, Austria
