ICST 2018 invites high quality submissions in all areas of software testing, verification, and validation. Papers for the research track should present novel and original work that pushes the state-of-the-art. Case studies and empirical research papers are also welcome.
Topics of interest include, but is not limited to, the following:
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the ICST Program Committee.
Papers that have a strong industrial/practical component and focus more on impact than (technical) novelty are encouraged to consider our industry track. They will be reviewed for practical impact and relevance by at least one PC member based in industry.
We will invite authors of the best papers presented at ICST 2018 to extend and submit their work to a special issue of Journal of Software Testing, Verification, and Reliability (STVR). Both research and industry track papers are eligible and the final selection is made by the PC.
Full Research Papers as well as Industry papers must conform to the two-column IEEE conference publication format. Templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word are available from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html: please use the
letter format template and
Papers should be submitted in the PDF format: they must not exceed ten pages, plus up to two pages of references. Submissions will be handled via EasyChair http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icst2018.
Papers must neither have been previously accepted for publication nor be under submission in another conference or journal. The ICST 2018 research track accepts only full research papers. Short papers are not accepted to the research track.
For your paper to be published in the ICST 2018 conference proceedings, at least one of the authors of the paper must register for the conference and confirm that she/he will present the paper in person.
How to submit? Submissions will be handled via EasyChair at http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icst2018
ICST 2018 is adopting Double Blind Reviewing: research track submissions should not reveal the identity of author(s) in any way; names and affiliations should be left out. Authors should also ensure that citations to their own work are written in third person (i.e. do not write “our previous work”; use “the previous work of X”). More details about the double blind review process at ICST2018 can be found here: http://www.es.mdh.se/icst2018/double-blind-review/
Please contact the Program Co-chairs if you have any further question about the DBR process. Industry track papers need not be double-blinded.
