TAIC PART 2017 : 12th Workshop on Testing: Academia-Industry Collaboration, Practice and Research Techniques
Call For Papers
+++ Theme and Goals +++
TAIC PART is a workshop co-located with ICST 2017 that aims to forge collaboration
between industry and academia on the challenging and exciting problem of
real-world software testing. It is promoted by representatives of both industry
and academia, bringing together industrial software engineers and testers with
researchers working on theory and practice of software testing.
The goals of TAIC PART range from the articulation of research questions in the
field of software testing and analysis to practical challenges faced in industry.
The common theme is the discussion and advancement of approaches and methods for
sustainable collaboration between academia and industry in software testing.
+++ Topics of Interest +++
TAIC PART invites submissions relevant to practice and research including
+ Industry experience reports: practical and generalizable insights into how to
apply and extend existing approaches to software testing and analysis
+ Research methods for collaborative research: ways that industry and academia
can collaborate to further knowledge on testing, verification and validation
+ Industrial challenges with real-world testing: describe a real-world software
testing problem for which industry seeks help from academia or vice versa
+ Knowledge exchange between industry and academia: how can new results and
knowledge be exchanged between the two partners
+++ Submission and Proceedings +++
+ Regular Papers (6 pages): Experience reports, research papers, longer challenge
papers (extension up to 10 pages may be possible on request)
+ Fast Abstracts (up to 2 pages): Challenges in practice and research, work in
progress, positions statements
Authors should submit a PDF version of their paper through the TAIC PART 2017
paper submission site: http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=taicpart2017.
All accepted papers will be part of the ICST joint workshop proceedings published
in the IEEE Digital Library.
