Call For Papers

A-MOST 2012: The 8th Workshop on Advances in Model Based Testing
April 17, 2012, Montreal, Canada
Co-located with IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST)

Important Dates:
* Paper submission: January 31, 2012

* Workshop date: April 17, 2012

About A-MOST 2012:
The increasing complexity of software results in new challenges for
testing. Model Based Testing (MBT) continue to be an important
research area, where new approaches, methods and tools make MBT
techniques more deployable and useful for industry than ever. Models
and different abstractions can ease comprehension of a complex system
and ease test generation and automation. A-MOST has proven to be a
successful workshop that brings researchers and practitioners together
discussing formal and semi-formal approaches, specification formats
and notations that contribute to simplifying complex aspects of a
system. The goal is to bring researchers and practitioners together to
discuss state of the art, practice and future prospects in MBT.

Topics of interest:
This workshop would like to encourage the submission of original
papers that deal with any of the following topics, but not limited to:
1. The models used in MBT
2. The processes, techniques, and tools that support MBT
3. Evaluation (i.e., the evaluation of software using MBT and the
evaluation of MBT) Models
4. Models for component, integration and system testing
5. Product-line models & (Hybrid) embedded system models
6. Systems-of-systems models & Architectural models
7. Models for orchestration and choreography of services
8. Executable models and simulation
9. Environment and use models
10. Non-functional models and quantitative MBT
11. Model-based test generation algorithms
12. Application of model checking techniques in model-based testing
13. Tracing from requirements model to test models
14. Performance and predictability of model-driven development
15. Test model evolution during the software lifecycle
16. Generation of testing-infrastructures from models
17. Combinatorial approaches for MBT Statistical testing
18. Estimating dependability (e.g., security, safety, reliability) using MBT
19. Coverage metrics and measurements for structural and (non-)functional models
20. Cost of testing, economic impact of MBT
21. Empirical validation, experiences, case studies using MBT

Submission and Proceedings:
Full papers should be submitted before January 31, 2012 in PDF through
easy-chair submission web-site at

Papers will be reviewed by at least three members from the program
committee and notice of accepted papers will be sent before February
24, 2012.

Accepted papers must be orally presented during the workshop to be
published within ICST proceedings. Accepted papers will be published
in the IEEE Digital Library. Additionally, the author(s) of the best
paper will be invited to publish an extended version of their work for
inclusion in the Information and Software Technology journal.
