STA 2017 - 9th IEEE International COMPSAC Workshop on Software Test Automation

Date2017-07-04 - 2017-07-08


VenueTorino, Turin, Italy Italy



Topics/Call fo Papers

Test automation aims to reduce the cost and improve the effectiveness of software testing by using various techniques and methods. Other benefits are consistency and accuracy, reduction of overall test cycle time, risk mitigation of manual testing, and increase in overall product quality. Recording test activities as test scripts and playing the test scripts or record and playback are the common methods. More advanced methodologies include data-driven, keyword-driven and hybrid methods as well as framework-based methods. Among tool development, interoperability remains a major challenge.
Workshop theme:
This year’s theme of COMPSAC is “Building Digital Autonomy for a Sustainable World”. Our world changes constantly, driven by the desire to make our lives more convenient, safe and enjoyable. Once the lore of science-fiction, we now share our planet with billions of automated processes, functioning under the control of computer systems we have developed. As we enjoy the advantages they provide, we can't help but wonder, what will be the next major technical innovations and where might they lead us? We've seen conventional automobiles become self-driving cars, human-directed systems become adapted ones, and human services enhanced by robotic services. Clearly, the movement from physical to cyber-enhanced domains is rapid and increasing, calling upon ever-more exciting innovations in computers, software and applications.
Accordingly, submissions including applications and case studies in these areas will highly be appreciated.
Scope of the workshop:
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following
Test automation for large, complex systems
