Call for Artefacts

The goal of the artefacts track is to provide a community service whereby people can submit artefacts that become a basis for conducting and evaluating relevant research.

Authors will submit a one page paper (PDF format) file containing:

  • Authors and affiliations.
  • A brief introduction and detailed instructions on how to setup the artefact.
  • A discussion on how the artefact can be used to address a relevant research problem in software testing, verification and validation.
  • Description on how to access the artefacts:
    • A URL link to download the artifact, such as a GitHub or bitbucket repository, Dropbox or Google Drive folder.
    • In case the link cannot be provided, authors must provide instructions on how the track chairs will get access to the artifacts.
  • In case the submitted artefact has been used in a published paper, a reference to that paper should be provided.

 

The submitted artefacts will be evaluated based on:

  • The effort to understand and reuse the artifacts according to the provided instructions.
  • How it can be used to address a relevant research problem in software testing, verification & validation.

All submitted artefacts will be evaluated by the artefacts track chairs and be classified into either successfully evaluated or rejected. Successfully evaluated artefacts will be made publicly available.
