Call for papers
We invite you to submit a paper to the workshop, and present and discuss it at the event itself on any topics related to automated software testing.
Full paper (up to 7 pages, including references) describing original and completed research.
Short paper (up to 4 pages, including references) for example:
– position statements – intended to generate discussion and debate.
– work-in-progress – that describes novel work that not necessarily has reached its full completion.
– technology transfer paper – describing University-Industry co-operation.
– tool paper – describing a test tool. Note that accepted tool papers are expected to give a demo at the workshop.
- Techniques and tools for automating test case design, generation, and selection, e.g. model-based approaches, combinatorial-based approaches, search based approaches, symbolic-based approaches, machine learning, artificial intelligence.
- New trends in the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve test automation.
- Test cases optimization.
- Test cases evaluation and metrics.
- Test cases design, selection, and evaluation in emerging domains, e.g. Graphical User Interface, Social Network, Cloud, Games, Security, Cyber Physical Systems.
- Case studies that have evaluated an existing technique or tool on real systems, not only toy problems, to show the quality of the resulting test cases compared to other approaches.
Call for hands-on
A-TEST also offers an opportunity to introduce your novel testing technique or tool to its audience in an active hands-on session of 3 hours. This is an excellent opportunity to get more people involved in your technique/tool. You are invited to send us hands-on proposals (up to 2 pages) describing how you will conduct the session.
Papers and proposals will be submitted through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=atest2019
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three referees. Submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this workshop. Authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism and the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions.
All papers must be prepared in ACM Conference Format.
Papers accepted for the workshop will appear in the ACM digital library, providing a lasting archived record of the workshop proceedings.
