Special Session on Automated Quality Assurance
at the Scientific Program of the Software Quality Days 2015
Vienna, Austria
20.-22. January 2015

The 7th Software Quality Days (SWQD) conference and tools fair – one of the largest software quality conferences in Europe - will bring together researchers and practitioners from business, industry, and academia working on quality assurance and quality management for software engineering and information technology.

SWQD will again host a scientific program on software quality research. It has established itself as an important meeting of software quality researchers. This year, we hold a special session on automated quality assurance to emphasise this important topic.

Research in software quality assurance (SQA) is more and more driven by automating SQA tasks. For example, researchers work on automating test generation and execution, detecting clones or predicting fault-prone components. These activities are not well integrated, however. This is why we plan this special session with the aim to discuss the connections in automating quality assurance. The general requirements on the submitted papers are the same as on the technical research papers but they need to relate to the topic of the special session.

Publication Requirements

  •  Full papers: 15-20 pages in Springer LNBIP proceedings format including an abstract of up to 150 words
  • Short Papers: 8-12 pages in Springer LNBIP proceedings format

The language of the scientific program is English. The scientific program papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed for publication in the well known research publication series Springer LNBIP.

See the LNBIP Website for author instructions.

Papers must not have been previously published or submitted for review elsewhere. If accepted, papers must be personally presented at the Software Quality Days 2015 Conference by the author or one of the co-authors. The first presenting author can participate free of charge at the two conference days. Additional authors/presenters can participate at a discounted partner fee.
