The IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation (ICST) is the premier conferences for research in all areas related to software quality. The conference has a history of hosting successful workshops that provide collaborative forums for participants to exchange preliminary results, conduct intensive discussions on particular topics, and coordinate work among members of a technical community.
We encourage those interested in organizing a workshop to submit proposals focusing on any aspect of software testing, verification, and validation. These will be IEEE workshops, and organizers have the option of publishing the proceedings in the IEEE digital library.
