Conference Call for Papers

ICST 2020

13th IEEE Conference on Software Testing, Validation and Verification

23–27 March 2020 | Porto, Portugal

ICST 2020 is intended to provide a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the area of Software Testing, Verification and Validation. ICST 2020 will include keynote addresses by eminent scientists as well as special, regular and poster sessions. All research papers will be peer reviewed on the basis of a full length manuscript and acceptance will be based on quality, originality and relevance. Accepted research papers will be published in the conference proceedings with an IEEE catalog number and ISBN number. The proceedings will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore.

ICST 2020 invites high quality submissions in all areas of software testing, verification, and validation. Papers for the research track should present novel and original work that advances the state-of-the-art. Case studies and empirical research papers are also welcome.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but is not limited to, the following:

Fuzz testing

Manual testing practices and techniques

Search based software testing

Security testing

Model based testing

Test automation

Static analysis and symbolic execution

Formal verification and Model checking

Software reliability

Testability and design

Testing and development processes

Testing education

Testing in specific domains, such as mobile, web, embedded, concurrent, distributed, cloud, GUI and real-time systems

Testing for learning-enabled software, including deep learning

Testing/debugging tools

Theory of software testing

Empirical studies

Experience reports

Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the ICST Program Committee.

Papers that have a strong industrial/practical component and focus more on impact rather than (technical) novelty are encouraged to consider the industry track instead.

Submission Format

Full Research Papers as well as Industry papers must conform to the two-column IEEE conference publication format. Templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word are available from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html: please use the letter format template and conference option.

Papers should be submitted in the PDF format: they must not exceed ten pages, plus up to two pages of references. Submissions will be handled via EasyChair.

Papers must neither have been previously accepted for publication nor be under submission in another conference or journal. The ICST 2020 research track accepts only full research papers. Short papers are not accepted to the research track.

For your paper to be published in the ICST 2020 conference proceedings, at least one of the authors of the paper must register for the conference and confirm that she/he will present the paper in person.

New in 2020. Submissions must supply all information that is needed to replicate the results, and therefore are expected to include or point to a replication package with the necessary software, data, and instructions. Reviewers may consult these packages to resolve open issues. There can be good reasons for the absence of a replication package, such as confidential code and/or data, the research being mostly qualitative, or the paper being fully self-contained. If a paper does not come with a replication package, authors should comment on its absence in the submission data; reviewers will take such comments into account.
