A-TEST 2016 : Workshop on Automated Software Testing
Call For Papers
Seattle, WA, USA. November 18, 2016 co-located with FSE2016
Modern software that impacts all aspects of our life is getting increasingly complex and distributed over clouds and devices. This leads to new concerns in quality assurance.
Testing is at the moment the most important and mostly used quality assurance technique applied in industry. However, the development of cost-effective and high-quality modern systems opens new challenges that cannot be faced only with traditional testing approaches. New techniques for systematization and automation of testing are required.
The A-TEST workshop provides a venue for researchers as well as the industry to exchange and discuss trending views, ideas, state of the art work in progress, and scientific results.
