Welcome to AST 2019

14th IEEE/ACM International Workshop on Automation of Software Test

In Conjunction with ICSE 2019

Montreal, Canada. May 27, 2019

Topics of interest

Submissions on the annual AST 2019 theme (this year: Testing and Continuous Deployment) are especially encouraged,
but papers on other topics relevant to the automation of software test are also welco$

We are interested in the following aspects related to AST:

  1. Problems identification. Analysis and specification of requirements for AST, and elicitation of problems that hamper wider adoption of AST;
  2. Methodology. Novel methods and approaches for AST in the context of up-to-date software development methodologies;
  3. Technology. Automation of various test techniques and methods for test-related activities, as well as for testing various types of software;
  4. Tools and Environments. Issues and solutions in the development, operation, maintenance and evolution of tools and environments for AST, and their integration with other types of tools and runtime support platforms;
  5. Experiments, Empirical studies and Experience reports. Real experiences in using automated testing techniques, methods and tools in industry;
  6. Visions of the future. Foresight and thought-provoking ideas for AST that can inspire new powerful research trends.
