Special Issue on Mutation Testing

* Submission deadline: July 31, 2015 *

-----------------------
Background
-----------------------

Mutation is acknowledged as an important way to assess the fault-finding effectiveness of tests sets. Mutation testing has mostly been applied at the source code level, but more recently, related ideas have also been used to test artefacts described in a considerable variety of notations and at different levels of abstraction. Mutation ideas are now used in requirements validation (where distinguishing test cases can be used to challenge users about what they really want), with formal specifications (to assess resilience of specification properties to deviations), architectural design notations, and informal descriptions such as use cases. Data mutation has also been investigated for critical systems and web services. Mutation is now established as a major concept in software and systems V&V and uses of mutation are increasing. This special issue serves as a platform for researchers and practitioners to present theory, results, experience and advances in mutation testing.

-----------------------
Topics
-----------------------

This special issue focuses on all topics relevant to mutation analysis. In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Mutation-based test adequacy criteria (theory or practical application). 

* Mutation-based test data generation. 

* Higher order mutation testing. 

* Mutation analysis for abstract models
* Novel mutation testing paradigms and applications. 

* Empirical studies of mutation testing. 

* Mutation for security and reliability.
* Formal theoretical analysis of mutation testing. 

* Mutation for mobile, Internet and cloud-based systems 
(e.g., QoS, power consumption, stress testing, perfor- 
mance, etc).
