Call for posters


An alternative approach for the presentation of ongoing projects/new work will be available for conference participants. An area on the conference premises has been designated for the presentation of information regarding projects or activities of interest to participants. The Poster session is part of the exhibition.


Poster presenters are expected to bring their printed poster and handouts and stay during the entire session. Attendees will browse among the posters and speak directly with the presenters.
Thus, the poster session is intended to be informal, conversational.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Software testing theory and practice
  • Model-based testing
  • Domain specific testing, e'g:
    • Security testing
    • web services testing
    • Database testing
    • Embedded software testing
    • And OO software testing
  • Verification & validation
  • Quality assurance
  • Model checking
  • Empirical studies
  • Metrics
  • Fuzz testing
  • Inspections
  • Tools
  • Testability and diagnosability
  • Design for testability
  • Testing education
  • Testing in multidisciplinary applications
  • Technology transfer
  • Model-driven engineering and testing
  • Agile/iterative/incremental testing processes
  • Open source software/3rdparty software testing
  • Novel approaches to software reliability assessment

Review Process

Selection will be made by a poster session committee of ICST
