ICST 2008 Call for Workshops

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

The new IEEE International Conference on Software Testing Verification and Validation (ICST'08) will offer an open forum for software testing, verification and validation research and its transfer to practice. The conference will host a number of workshops that will provide a collaborative forum for a group of participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. Each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of time between the presentation of papers and discussions. The duration of these workshops is one day. These will be IEEE workshops and organizers have the option of publishing the proceedings in the IEEE digital library.

We encourage workshop organizers to submit proposals focusing on particular aspects of model-based software testing, domain specific testing, empirical studies of testing techniques, and the technology transfer of research results to software development practices. Other topic areas will also be considered.
