JAMAICA 2013 : Joining AcadeMiA and Industry Contributions to testing Automation
Call For Papers
In industrial software systems, testing activities account by now for more than 50% of total development effort. People strive to find solutions able to reduce such cost without compromising the final quality. A key role in this scenario is played by all those solutions pushing industry toward test automation.
In such a vicious cycle, the JAMAICA workshop intends to foster the discussion on the current practices for automating testing activities in industry, so as to bring the attention of the community on the impact that such practices may have on the overall cost/quality trade-off and on the development cycle.
Methodological, technical, and practical solutions, tools and platforms for supporting automation, as well as concrete experiences and case-study in modern software systems will be presented and discussed, regarding all the type of test automation activities, including code-driven testing, model-based and model-driven testing, regression testing automation, prioritazation, oracle automation, and all practices, at several levels (unit, integration, system testing level, as well as at process level), oriented toward the minimization of manual error-prone activities in test cases generation and execution.
Original papers are solicited for the workshop. A full paper (up to 6 pages) should be submitted by April 15, 2013. All contributions will be reviewed by the international Program Committee. Authors will be notified of acceptance by May 10, 2013. We will require camera-ready full papers by May 28, 2013.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:
Software test automation in the context of:
Agile, service-oriented & agent-oriented methodologies
Testing Tools and Open source platforms enabling test automation
Methodologies and techniques for Automatic generation and execution of test cases
Contribution to Testing related standards for automation
Cloud computing platforms for enabling test execution in distributed environments
Practical experiences and issues in the development, operation and maintenance of industrial testing environments
Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the EasyChair conference system:
Submitted papers should be in PDF format and should comply the ACM policies that can be found at: http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/policies-toc/.
All submissions must be in English.
Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines or that violate formatting will be declined without review.
The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM and will be distributed together with the ISSTA 2013 conference proceedings in a USB pen drive. No printed copy of the proceedings will be available at the conference.
