Download Call for Papers

TAIC PART is a workshop that aims to forge collaboration between industry and academia on the challenging and exciting problem of real-world software testing. It is promoted by representatives of both industry and academia, bringing together industrial software engineers and testers with researchers working on theory and practice of software testing. TAIC PART expects submissions relevant to practice and research like evaluation of testing approaches by means of industrial surveys, case studies or experiments, experience reports on the application of scientific approaches in industry, or ideas on how to facilitate the knowledge transfer between industry and academia. The goals of TAIC PART range from the articulation of research questions in the field of software testing and analysis to practical challenges faced in industry. One aim is also to describe and discuss methods for better collaboration between academia and industry in these areas.

TAIC PART 2013 solicits papers within software testing, verification and validation of the following types:

  • Industry experience reports - provide practical and generalizable insights into how to apply and extend existing approaches to software testing and analysis
  • Research methods for collaborative research - describe ways that industry and academia can collaborate to further knowledge on testing, verification and validation
  • Industrial challenges with real-world testing - describe a real-world software testing problem for which industry seek help from academia or vice versa
  • Knowledge exchange between industry and academia - how can new results and knowledge be exchanged and transferred between the two partners

We invite submission of papers of the following types:

  • Papers (6 pages): Experience reports, research methods, longer challenge papers
  • Fast Abstracts (2 pages): Work in progress, challenges, positions

Authors should submit a PDF version of their paper through the TAIC PART 2013 paper submission site. Papers must be written in English and conform to the IEEE Format and Submission Guidelines. For details see the conference web site. All papers will undergo a rigorous review by at least three members of the program committee. All accepted papers will be part of the proceedings. Proceedings will be published in the IEEE Digital Library.

TAIC PART 2013 offers a mentoring program providing prospective submitters the opportunity to obtain advice on a prospective submission. To foster feedback, discussion and cooperation between practitioners and researchers a special information exchange session will be organized.
