IBM R&D Labs in Israel

The 2nd International Workshop on Combinatorial Testing (IWCT 2013)

In conjunction with International Conference on Software Testing
(ICST 2013, March 18-22)

Call for Papers

We invite submissions of high-quality papers presenting original work on both theoretical and experimental aspects of combinatorial testing. We accept both full papers (up to 10 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Combinatorial testing workflow
    • Modeling the input space for CT
    • Efficient algorithms to generate t-way test suites, especially involving support of constrains
    • Determination of expected system behavior for each test case
    • Executing CT test suites
    • Combinatorial testing based fault localization
    • Implementation of CT with existing testing infrastructures
    • Handling changes in test requirements
  • Applicability of combinatorial testing
    • Comparison and combination of CT with other dynamic verification methods
    • Investigation of historical records of failures to determine the kind of CT which may have detected underlying faults
    • Empirical studies and feedback from practical applications of CT
    • Combinatorial testing for concurrent and real-time systems
    • CT for testing cloud computing systems and use of combinatorial methods in cloud architecture
    • Application of CT in other domains, e.g., study of gene regulation and other biotechnology applications
  • Combinatorial and complementing methods
    • Combinatorial analysis of existing test suites
    • Test plan reduction and completeness
    • CT and coverage metrics – combining the two, and studying the relationship between them

Papers must be submitted before the deadline and according to submission guidelines.
