There will also be an Industrial Case Studies session at the workshop, with presentations reporting the real state of the practice in automation of software testing. Test practitioners are especially encouraged to contribute their experiences and insights on test automation in this session. Submissions to this session do not have to conform to the main theme of the workshop.
Topics for this session include, but are not limited to, the following:
- new tools
- new best practices
- process innovations related to test automation
- gaps in existing vendor toolsets
- ideas and visions for near-term research work
Papers submitted as Industrial case studies will be reviewed under a criterion different from that for research papers. Each presentation will be followed by discussions in the form of questions and answers. And, at the end of each case study session, there will be open discussions to enable wider and deeper exploration of related issues.
