Call For Papers

Recommended Topics or Themes
Concepts of software test architecture
- Abstraction of test cases (e.g. test levels, test types, abstract equivalent classes, high-level test conditions and high-level test cases)
- Relationships of abstract test cases
- Separation of concerns for test
- Architecture of test suite based on abstract test cases (e.g. design of test levels and test types)
- Types of software test architecture (e.g. architecture of test suite and architecture of test system/environment)
- Similarities, differences and harmonization between test suite architecture and test system architecture
- Similarities and differences among software test architecture, test strategy, test plan and test sub-process in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119
Design of software test architecture
- How to design several test levels
- How to design complicated test types and test cycles
- Design concepts for software test architecture design
- Modeling technique for software test architecture design
- Design patterns for software test architecture design
- Styles of software test architecture
- Quality characteristics of software test architecture (e.g. maintainability of test suite)
- Original diagrams and notation for software test architecture design
- Application or enhancement of existing notation (e.g. UML/UTP, SysML and future diagram for SPL)
- Connection of software test architecture design and test case design (e.g. structure of test case based on test architectural components)
- Meta-models or ontology for software test architectures
Test requirement analysis
- Whether software requirement specification is the goal of software test or not?
- How to model holistic test requirement
- How to model nonfunctional requirement for test
- How to organize test requirement for several source (e.g. from customer, from design and from environment)
- How to overview large-scale and complex requirements for test
- Analysis patterns for test requirement analysis
- Emerging techniques of test requirements analysis (e.g. using Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, and etc.)
Application of software test architecture
- Quality evaluation of software test architecture
- Overall test engineering methodology based on software test architecture design
- Reuse of software test architecture design
- Product line engineering of test suite (e.g. how to design and manage variants of test suite)
- Design example of software test architecture for large-scale and complicated system
- Roles and responsibilities of test architect
- Automation based on software test architecture (e.g. separating automated test and manual test in keyword driven testing based on software test architecture)
- Test process improvement based on software test architecture
- Relationships between software architectures and software test architectures
- Typical software test architecture for a domain and/or comparison among domains (e.g. banking, logistics, cloud, automotive, medical, industrial automation and telecommunications)
- Industrial experiments and case studies of software test architectures

Paper Submission
• Research papers (up to 10 pages)
• Industrial experience reports (up to 6 pages)
• Emerging idea proposals (up to 6 pages)
Research papers require both original work and quantitative evaluation. Industrial experience reports require practical insight or actual improvement in industry as well as (quantitative if possible) evaluation. Emerging idea proposals require vision, perspective, concept, new idea, new research theme proposal and cross-technical discussion around test architecture design.

All papers must conform to IEEE's format: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

Workshop papers will be published in the IEEE Digital Library in the form of a post-proceedings.
