The ICST Tools Track seeks to bridge the gap between software testing, verification, and validation (V&V) practitioners and researchers with a goal of improving both the state-of-the-art and the state-of-the-practice. In their submissions, researchers should explain how they deal with the complexity and challenges of transferring research ideas into practice.
Moreover, researchers are welcome to submit papers in which they describe how academic research helps tool developers to apply new approaches to solve complex real industry problems. Novel techniques and tools will be exposed to the Tools Track participants, which will be connected with potential collaborators. We actively seek quality non-academic submissions, so that this track enables leading researchers and practitioners to discuss and solve important problems.
The Testing Tool Papers track will accept tools at several stages of maturity, including promising research prototypes, widely used research tools, and commercial tools.
We invite submission that include but that are not limited to the following areas:
Submissions will be evaluated based on:
Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings and the IEEE digital library.
Submissions will be handled via EasyChair (Tools, Demos, Artefacts track of ICST 2018):
The Tools, Demos, Artefacts track of ICST 2018 uses single-blind reviewing, which means that papers and tools need not be anonymized.
All submitted papers must conform to the two column IEEE conference publication format. Templates for Latex and Word are available at:
