ICST 2008 Call for Industry Papers

First International Conference on Software Testing,
Verification and Validation
Lillehammer, Norway
April 9-11 2008

ICST welcomes papers from industrial practitioners. There are two formats for presenting industrial work: a full length paper (10 pages), and an abbreviated short paper (4 pages). Full length papers should reflect on a significant and interesting experience in industrial testing, verification, or validation. It may be related to an unsolved problem, or to the use of known techniques in large-scale projects. Long papers should include a crisp statement of the issue being addressed, a clear presentation of how it was approached, a reflection on the outcome and lessons learned. Outstanding papers would also reflect on difficult problems that emerged in the experience that may be areas for future research. Short papers should provide a brief overview of some industrially significant testing experience. They may also be used to present a difficult testing challenge for which no known scalable solutions exist. Short papers should contain a clear description of a problem, and either a brief discussion of a solution, or a description of why existing approaches don't work. The deadlines for both full length and short industrial papers is identical to the deadlines for other papers.
