The IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and
Validation (ICST) is the premier conference for research in all areas related to
software quality. The ever increasing complexity, ubiquity, and dynamism of
modern software systems is making software quality assurance activities, and in
particular software testing and analysis, more challenging. ICST provides an
ideal forum where academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners can
present their latest approaches for ensuring the quality of today's complex
software systems, exchange and discuss ideas, and compare experiences. In this
spirit, ICST welcomes both research papers that present high quality original
work and industry reports from practitioners that present real world experiences
from which others can benefit.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the ICST Program
Committee. Authors of the best papers presented at ICST 2013 will be invited to
extend their work for possible inclusion in a special issue of Software Testing,
Verification, and Reliability, a Wiley journal.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Testing theory and practice
- Testing in globally-distributed organizations
- Model-based testing
- Model-driven development and testing
- Domain specific testing, such as:
- Security testing
- Web-service testing
- Database testing
- Embedded-software testing
- Testing concurrent software
- Testing large-scale distributed systems
- Testing in multi-core environments
- Validation testing
- Quality assurance
- Model checking
- Metrics and empirical studies
- Fuzzing
- Inspections
- Testing and analysis tools
- Design for testability
- Testing education
- Technology transfer in testing
- Agile/iterative/incremental testing processes
- Testing of open source and third-party software
- Software reliability
- Performance and QoS testing
- Standards
- Formal verification
- Experience reports
