Mutation 2007 (http://www.ise.gmu.edu/mutation2007/) (10-11 September)
will be co-located with the event and shares the same submission
TAIC PART is a testing workshop that aims to forge collaboration
between industry and academia on the challenging and exciting problem
of software testing. It is sponsored by representatives of both
industry and academia, bringing together commercial and industrial
software developers and users with academic researchers working on the
theory and practice of software testing.
The workshop will be held at Cumberland Lodge, Windsor Great Park, UK,
Wednesday 12 - Friday 14 September, 2007. Cumberland Lodge is a
former royal residence given to the nation in 1946 by the late Queen
Mother. It is an ideal setting for a productive and enjoyable
conference, providing world-class conference facilities in an ideal
location, which resonates with centuries of historical significance,
dating back to the mid 17th century.
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research,
experience, tools or industrial "challenges" in testing. All topics in
software testing will be considered. A special focus will be on papers
which are in accordance with the theme of the conference, which will
be Technology Transfer from Academia to Industry in Software Testing.
A special issue of the Journal of Systems and Software containing
extended versions of selected papers from TAIC PART 2007 will focus on
Research topics include (but are not limited to):
* Theory of testing (adequacy criteria, relationships between
testing and formal methods etc.)
* Testing strategies (black-box, white-box, non-functional,
* Test data generation techniques (search-based, constraint logic etc.)
* Model based testing and model checking
* Process issues and methods
Experience papers should describe industrial experience applying
testing techniques and/or tools to commercial projects or open source
solutions; the problems tackled and the results.
Tools papers should describe novel developments in environments and
systems of potential benefit to the testing community.
Industrial "challenge" papers should have at least one author whose
affiliation is non-academic and should describe an example of a
real-world software testing problem, for which help is sought from the
academic research community. Such papers should set out the problem,
the goal of testing for this problem area and the way in which the
success or otherwise of a proposed solution will be assessed. One goal
of the workshop will be to create on-going partnerships which will
seek to solve these industrial challenges.
The full proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.
Materials for the proceedings should be typeset to conform to IEEE
conference style guidelines. These are described and mirrored at
http://www.taicpart.org/papersubmission.php. There is a page limit for
all submissions. For research papers this is 10 pages in IEEE
conference style format. For "challenge", "tools" and "experience"
submissions the page limit is 5 pages in IEEE conference style format.
All papers should be submitted electronically via the website.
The workshop will include a half-day PhD program. The goal of the
half-day PhD program is to provide a supportive yet questioning
setting in which students can present their work. For more
information, see http://www.taicpart.org/phdprogram.php
