ISSTA 2016 : International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis
Conference Series : International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis
Call For Papers
ISSTA is the leading research symposium on software testing and analysis, bringing together academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners to exchange new ideas, problems, and experience on how to analyse and test software systems. ISSTA 2016 will be held at Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany on July 17–20, 2016.
Call for Technical Papers
Authors are invited to submit technical papers describing original research in software testing and analysis. Papers describing original theoretical or empirical research, new techniques, in-depth case studies, infrastructures of testing and analysis methods or tools are welcome.
Call for Experience Reports
Authors are invited to submit experience reports describing a significant experience in applying software testing and analysis. They should discuss important lessons learned, so that other researchers and practitioners can benefit from the experience. Of special interest are experience reports that report on industrial applications of software testing and analysis.
Submission Guidelines (please see comments on Double Blind)
Submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this symposium. Authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism and the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions. Both Technical Papers and Experience Reports should be at most 10 pages in length, with at most 2 additional pages for references. All papers must be prepared in ACM Conference Format.
ISSTA 2016 will conduct double-blind reviewing, the very first time in ISSTA. ISSTA’16 submissions should not reveal the identity of the authors in any way. Authors should leave out author names and affiliations from the body of their submission. They should also ensure that any citations to related work by themselves is written in third person, that is, “the prior work of XYZ” as opposed to “our prior work”. Authors having further questions on double blind reviewing are encouraged to contact the Program Chair by email.
Author Response Period
ISSTA16 adopts a two phase reviewing, and there is an author response period at the end of the first phase of reviewing. During the author response, authors are also allowed provide additional supplementary material in the form of software artifacts to sharpen their response to reviewer comments. Unlike the papers, the artifacts do not need to be anonymized. These artifacts will be reviewed by a separate Artifact Evaluation Committee who will send their comments directly to the Program Chair. None of the members of the Artifact Evaluation Committee will participate in the second phase of paper reviewing, thereby ensuring that the reviewing process remains double-blind.
All submissions should be PDF files submitted electronically via this Easychair link.
