IFIP-ICTSS 2021 - Call for Papers

IFIP-ICTSS 2021 - Call for Papers

ICTSS 2021, the 33rd IFIP International Conference on Testing Software and Systems, will be hosted as a Virtual event by University College London and taking place on November 10-12, 2021. Registration fees will reflect this.

The 33rd edition particularly encourages submission of research into the role of information theory in software testing including, but not limited to, issues such as diversity, efficacy and efficiency of test sets, oracle selection and evaluation, software robustness, coincidental correctness, fault localisation and information leakage.

CALL FOR PAPERS

IFIP-ICTSS is a well established conference where researchers,
developers, testers, and users from industry get together to present and
discuss the most recent innovations, experiences and open challenges
related to testing software and systems and measuring software quality.
The 33rd meeting particularly encourages submission of research into the
role of information theory in software testing including, but not limited
to, issues such as diversity, efficacy and efficiency of test sets, oracle
selection and evaluation, software robustness, coincidental correctness,
fault localisation and information leakage.

This year the conference will be virtual.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to :

Aspects of testing : test derivation, test selection, test generation,
test coverage, test concretisation, test implementation and execution,
test result analysis, test oracle, verdict computation, test management,
active testing and passive testing, monitoring and runtime verification.

Diversity on testing : diverse generation, selecting diverse test suites,
foundations of testing and diversity, applications of entropy and
Kolmogorov complexity on test suite diversity.

Theoretical approaches : formalisms (such as automata, state machines,
process algebra, logics, Markov-chains…), testing frameworks, results
for compositionality, refinement, soundness and completeness, addressing
complex systems, heterogeneous or hybrid systems.

Modelling languages (such as UML, MATLAB, Simulink, Modelica…) and
associated tooling for model-based testing : test generation from models,
model-based oracles. Scalability, traceability, quantification issues.

Automated support of any parts of the testing activities, testing
processes, test-driven development, sound metrics and measurements.

Testing of quality aspects : Functional, interoperability, unit,
integration, performance, load, conformance, non-regression,
reliability, robustness.

Security Testing : methodologies and techniques for continuous security
assessment, security monitoring, security review, penetration testing,
verification of certification compliance ; automation of security testing
processes.

Cross domains and combination of techniques : using other techniques such
as proof, model-checking, symbolic execution, abstract interpretation,
static analysis, simulation, model learning, machine learning, expert
systems, neural networks, genetic algorithms… to improve quality and
reduce the effort in testing processes.

Dedicated approaches to test protocols, middleware, networks, wireless
applications, control systems, software product lines, AI applications etc.

Application aspects and case studies : Communicating systems such as
cyberphysical systems, systems of systems, embedded systems, web
services systems, smart grids, cloud computing systems, business
information systems, real-time systems, distributed and concurrent
systems. Case studies and industrial applications involving qualified
empirical evaluations.

IMPORTANT DATES

Abstracts submitted : 16 June 2021
Paper submission : 23 June 2021
Author notification : 28 July 2021
Camera-ready : 18 August 2021

OVERVIEW

IFIP-ICTSS is a series of international conferences addressing the
conceptual, theoretic, and practical problems of testing software
systems, including communication protocols, services, distributed
platforms, middleware, embedded and cyber-physical systems, and security
infrastructures. IFIP-ICTSS aims to be a forum in which researchers,
developers, testers, and users can review and discuss new approaches,
concepts, theories, methodologies, tools, and experiences in the field
of testing of software and systems.


SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

IFIP-ICTSS 2021 invites :

Full papers (12 to 15 pages plus at most 2 extra pages for references in
the one-column Springer LNCS format) describing original research
contributions with sufficient evidence for the interest of the proposed
approach.

Short papers or work-in-progress papers (up to 6 pages plus at most 1
extra page for references in the one-column Springer LNCS format)
describing academic work in progress or tool implementations, as well as
testing processes, achievements and feedbacks on testing methods for
industrial case studies.

The papers can be submitted via EasyChair :
https://www.easychair.org/my/conference?conf=ictss2021

PUBLICATION

The proceedings of the conference will be published in Springer’s Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series.
