ICST 2012: The 5th IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation

ICST 2012 - Montreal

The International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation (ICST) is the premier conference in all areas related to software quality. Software systems present unique engineering challenges to the tester, not least because they can exhibit non-determinism and emergent behaviour. No other engineering artefact is more closely intertwined with human activities, resulting in complex hybrid systems that involve software, human judgment and, sometimes, political, legal and social processes.

As a result, software verification and validation, including testing, inspections, model analysis, safety certification, etc. draws upon a wide spectrum of disciplines, including engineering, mathematics, and psychology. It touches on all aspects of computer science and software engineering research and impacts on almost all software activities. ICST welcomes research papers as well as industrial experience reports from software development and testing practitioners. For the research papers, ICST seeks high quality original works. For the industrial papers, ICST seeks papers that present real world experiences from which others can benefit.

Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a special issue of Software Testing, Verification, and Reliability, a Wiley journal.
