Call For Papers


The second workshop on Joining AcadeMiA and Industry Contributions to Test Automation and Model-based Testing
(JAMAICA 2014)

California, July 21st 2014 (parallel to ISSTA Conference)

In industry, testing activities now account for more than 50% of the total software development effort. People strive to find solutions able to reduce such costs without compromising the final quality. A key role in this situation are approaches that push industry toward better test automation, to minimize manual, error-prone activities in test case generation and execution.

The JAMAICA workshop intends to foster the discussion on the current practices for automating and model-based testing activities among academia and industry (such as automotive, avionics, and factory automation). This should show the community what impact these activities may have on the overall cost/quality trade-off and on the development cycle.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:

Model-based testing (MBT)
Automatic testing in model-driven engineering & component-based development
Test automation or MBT in agile development
Automatic or model-based testing for service-oriented & agent-oriented methodologies
Testing Tools and Open source platforms enabling test automation
Strategies, methodologies and techniques for automatic generation and execution of test cases
Quality measures for test generation, especially in safety critical systems
Standards and accreditation related to test automation
Cloud computing platforms for enabling test execution in distributed environments, and testing of distributed systems
Domain Specific Languages and solutions for test automation and MBT
Success- or failure-stories about practical experiences and issues in the development, operation and maintenance of industrial testing environment

Submission Guidelines

JAMAICA is seeking two kinds of submissions: regular and short papers. Regular papers are up to 6 double-column pages, describing fully accomplished work in industry or research. Short Papers are up to 3 double-column pages, describing work in industry or research that has not yet produced the results required for a regular paper, but that deserves to be shared with the community at an early stage due to its novelty and potential impact.

All papers must contain original, unpublished work and will be accepted and included in the workshop program and proceedings according to the following criteria: relevance of the addressed topic to the scope of the workshop; novelty of the proposed contribution; technical relevance and practicality of presented ideas; relevance of case studies and of results for the industrial community; writing and presentation accuracy and style.

Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the EasyChair conference system:
Submitted papers must be in English, in PDF format and comply to the ACM policies available at Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will be declined without review; all others will be reviewed by an international program committee.

Conference Proceedings

The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM. At the workshop, the proceedings will be made digitally available.

Important Dates

Deadline for submission of regular and short papers: April 25, 2014
Notification of acceptance: May 23, 2014
Deadline for submission of final manuscripts: June 6, 2014
Workshop: July 21st, 2014 (Hilton San Jose, Bay Area, California)
