Co-located with ESEC/FSE 2019 


A-TEST workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers as well as the industry to exchange and discuss trending views, ideas, state of the art work in progress, and scientific results on Automated Testing.

Modern software teams seek a delicate balance between two opposing forces: striving for reliability and striving for agility. Software teams need tools to strike the right balance by increasing the development speed without sacrificing quality. Automated testing tools play an important role in obtaining this balance.

A-TEST has successfully run 9 editions since 2009. During the 2017 and 2018 editions, that was also co-located at ESEC/FSE, we introduced hands-on sessions where testing tools can be studies in depth. Due to the many positive reactions we received, this year we will have them again!

Previous Editions

The A-TEST workshop has evolved over the years and has successfully run 7 editions since 2009. The first editions went by the name of ATSE (2009 and 2011) took place at the CISTI (Conference on Information Systems and Technologies, The three subsequent editions (2012, 2013 and 2014) at FEDCSIS (Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems, In 2015 there was an ATSE2015 at SEFM year and an A-TEST2015 at FSE.

In 2016 we merged the events at FSE resulting in the 7th edition of A-TEST in 2016.

The 8th edition of A-TEST in 2017 was Co-located at the 12th Joint Meeting of the European Software Engineering Conference (ESEC) and the ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE), 2017 in Paderbron.

The 9th edition of A-TEST in 2018 was Co-located at the 13th Joint Meeting of the European Software Engineering Conference (ESEC) and the ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE), 2018 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, United States.
