SoftTest: UK Testing Research II

Department of Computer Science, University of York

In September 1998, the first UK Testing Research Workshop was held at York attended by 30 UK academics and industrialists with a special interest in software testing research. Since then, the testing community has heartily engaged in specific networks such as the EPSRC's SEMINAL and FORTEST. There is no doubt that UK interest in testing is greater now than in 1998. However, there is no obvious forum for software testing in general.

UK Testing Research II is intended as the first in a series of annual UK national workshops. This will be held at the Department of Computer Science at York 4-5 September 2003. It is anticipated that the 2004 Workshop will be at Brunel University, and the 2005 workshop will be at Sheffield University.

Publication of Papers.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for a special issue of The Journal of Software Testing Verification and Reliability (STVR). A book on software testing is also planned which will be published by Wiley. One of the subsidiary goals of the workshop is to recruit authors for chapters of this book, though this is an opportunity and in no way a requirement of attendance. The full proceedings, containing all accepted papers, will be published as York Computer Science Yellow Report (available on the web).
