IEEE International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering

6th Workshop on Validation, Analysis and Evolution of Software Tests

Home page:

Software projects accumulate large sets of test cases, encoding valuable expert knowledge about the system under test. Over time, the reliability of the tests decreases, and they become difficult to understand and maintain. Extra effort is required for repairing broken tests and for adapting and co-evolving test suites with changing software systems. The International Workshop on Validation, Analysis and Evolution of Software Tests (VST) is a unique event bringing together academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners for exchanging experiences, solutions, and new ideas in applying methods, techniques and tools from software analysis, evolution and re-engineering to advance the state of the art in test development and maintenance.

The workshop invites submission of full technical papers (8 pages) as well as position papers and tool demos (2-4 pages) related, but not limited, to:

  • Change analysis for software tests
  • Automated repair for test code
  • Test code analysis and validation
  • Test execution visualization
  • Clone detection for tests
  • Test minimization and simplification
  • Test results and bug report analysis
  • Fault localization
  • Test generation and amplification
  • Model-based testing
  • Combinations of the topics above
