IWCT 2016 : 5th International Workshop on Combinatorial Testing


When Apr 10, 2016 - Apr 10, 2016
Where Chicago, USA
Submission Deadline Jan 15, 2016
Categories    combinatorial testing   software testing   feature models   software quality

Call For Papers

We invite submissions of high-quality papers presenting original work on both theoretical and experimental aspects of combinatorial testing.

Topics of interest for papers or posters include, but are not limited to:

* **Combinatorial testing workflow**
* Modeling the input space for CT
* Efficient algorithms to generate t-way test suites, especially involving support of constraints
* Determination of expected system behavior for each test case
* Executing CT test suites
* Combinatorial testing based fault localization
* Implementation of CT with existing testing infrastructures
* Handling changes in test requirements

* **Real-world experience in deployment of combinatorial testing**
* Empirical studies and feedback from practical applications of CT
* Evaluation and ROI metrics to assess the degree of usefulness of CT
* Methodology used for test space modeling and determination of interaction coverage requirements
* Discussion of challenges and open problems in the application of CT in industrial settings

* **Applicability of combinatorial testing**
* Comparison and combination of CT with other dynamic verification methods
* Study of failure records to determine the kind of CT which may have detected faults
* Combinatorial testing for concurrent and real-time systems
* Cloud computing systems testing and use of combinatorial methods in cloud architecture
* Application of CT in other domains, e.g. biotech applications, mechanical engineering, security, etc.
* Combinatorial testing, feature models, and software product lines

* **Combinatorial and complementing methods**
* Combinatorial analysis of existing test suites
* Test plan reduction and completeness
* CT and coverage metrics – combining the two, and studying the relationship between them
