We invite you to contribute to and attend in the IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) 2014! Our focus for 2014 is to help move the software industry forward by facilitating interactions between academics, industrial researchers and practitioners. Researchers have many innovative techniques and tools that could help address issues that practitioners face. Practitioners face many practical problems that researchers can help address.

ICST is the premier conference in all areas related to software testing. Software-intensive systems present unique engineering challenges to developers and testers. The systems are growing larger and more complex and can exhibit non-determinism and emergent behaviour.

The development of a software system involves human judgement and, sometimes, political, legal and social processes. As a result, software verification and validation includes testing, inspections, safety certification, security, privacy and draws upon a wide spectrum of disciplines, including engineering, mathematics and also psychology. Verification and validation touches all aspects of computer science and software engineering research and impacts every software practitioner.

ICST seeks to meet these challenges by bringing together researchers and practitioners for a conference that includes all aspects of software testing, verification, and validation. This year’s conference will include research papers, industrial experience reports and presentations, tool demonstrations, and tutorials. For the research papers, ICST seeks high quality original work. For the industrial experience reports, ICST seeks papers and presentations that present real world experience from which others can benefit. Tool demonstrations are also welcome, especially those openly available for others to use. Finally, we are seeking tutorials that are relevant to both practitioners and researchers. See the specific calls for more details!

Cleveland has a long history of culture, arts, and music. We hope you will enjoy the conference and all Cleveland has to offer!
Extended versions of the best papers from ICST conferences are regularly published in special editions of JSTVR.
