Call For Papers

Doctoral Symposium
International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis
July 15, 2013

The ISSTA Doctoral Symposium is a forum for PhD students working in the area of software testing and analysis to present their research goals, methods, and preliminary results, obtaining feedback from senior researchers of the software testing and analysis scientific community, in a constructive and friendly atmosphere.
Participants will obtain useful guidance for the completion of their dissertation research and initiation of a research career in software testing and analysis.
Prospective student participants should be at a stage in their research where they have already identified a research topic, but they are at least 6 months prior to dissertation completion.
Participants will be selected based on a 4-page (in ACM conference format) paper describing their proposed thesis research. The paper should provide a description of the problem their research intends to address, a focused description of the proposed research, including a statement of their hypotheses, a description of their approach and evaluation plans, their positioning with respect to the state of the art and the expected improvements and benefits.
The ISSTA 2013 Doctoral Symposium will be held on Monday July 15th, 2013, the day before the start of the ISSTA main conference, in Lugano, Switzerland. The symposium will be closed-door, with participation restricted to the PhD students taking part in the symposium and the members of the ISSTA 2013 Doctoral Symposium committee.
PhD students taking part in the symposium will have a unique opportunity to describe their research ideas and receive comments and suggestions from experienced researchers in the field.
The ISSTA Doctoral Symposium will be coordinated with the TAROT Summer School (9th International Summer School on Training And Research On Testing). Special arrangements will be made to encourage and support participation of PhD students to both the events. More information on the coordination of the two events will be published shortly on both Web sites.
The TAROT Summer School will be held the week before ISSTA in Volterra, Italy. Among other facilities, we plan to organize a bus transfer service from Volterra to simplify the trip to Lugano. Special registration fees will be also available for students participating in both events.
