Software Testing and Automation

Special Session in SEKE 2009

The 21st International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE'09)

Hyatt Harborside at Logan Int'l Airport, Boston, USA


With the quick increase of software in complexity and scale, software testing and automation is becoming an emerging and effective solution in software quality assurance to meet tight project schedules with quality. Although many research papers have been published to address software test automation issues and solutions, there are still many open issues, obstacles, and challenges in software testing and automation due to the increasing complexity of the today’s application systems and advance of software technologies. As the paradigm shift in software engineering from object-oriented software construction to model-based, component-based, or SOA-based software construction, new problems and needs must be addressed.

The special session invites researchers and professionals from universities and industry responsible to submit your original papers and experience reports on the state-of-the-art software testing solutions and automation practice.

The interested topics for paper submissions in this invited session include but are not limited to the followings:
