VST 2024 -- 7th International Workshop on
Validation, Analysis and Evolution of Software Tests

March 12, 2024 - co-located with SANER 2024, Rovaniemi, Finland


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 code analysis and validation
* Test execution monitoring and visualization
* Test results analysis and bug reporting
* Fault detection and localization
* Change impact analysis for software tests
* Co-evolution of tests and code
* Automated repair for test code
* Clone detection for tests
* Metamorphic relations for testing
* Test generation and amplification
* Regression test selection and prioritization
* Test minimization and simplification
* Model-based testing
* Combinations of the topics above


We encourage submission of papers on the topics mentioned above: Full papers
(8 pages), position papers and tool demonstration papers (2 to 4 pages).
Papers must conform to the IEEE proceedings paper format guidelines and need
to be prepared for a full double-blind review process. If the paper is accepted,
at least one author must attend the workshop and present the paper.

Submission is done via EasyChair (

Program chairs:

Christian Macho, University of Klagenfurt, Austria
Martin Pinzger, University of Klagenfurt, Austria
