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

There has been very strong activity in the field of testing and validation research, as reflected in recent years by numerous workshops dealing with testing in different areas. The new IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation (ICST) will offer an open forum for software testing, verification and validation research and its transfer to practice. It aims at stimulating scientific research on model-based software testing, domain specific testing, empirical studies of testing techniques, and the technology transfer of research results to software development practices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Software testing theory and practice
  • Model-based testing
  • Domain specific testing including, but not limited to, security testing, web services testing, database testing, and OO software testing
  • Verification & Validation
  • Quality Assurance
  • Model checking
  • Empirical studies
  • Metrics
  • Inspections
  • Tools
  • Testability and diagnosability
  • Design for testability
  • Testing education
  • Testing in multidisciplinary applications
  • Embedded software
  • Technology transfer
  • Model-Driven Engineering
  • Novel approaches to software reliability assessment
