Call For Papers


The 1st International Workshop on Scenario Based Testing (SCENARIOS 2011)

Co-located with ICST 2011
(The 4th Int. Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation)
Berlin, Germany, March 21-25, 2011

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 7, 2011 (extended)


Nowadays, more and more techniques rely on human intervention so as to ensure
the applicability of testing approaches. Indeed, a trade-off has to be found
between the relevance of the test cases (requiring strong human intervention)
and automation. Scenario-Based Testing addresses this issue by looking for more
automation, with human intervention restricted to insightful activities. Over
the years, different scenario based testing techniques have been developed to
assist the validation engineer, using textual scenarios such as regular
expressions, graphical notations such as UML interaction diagrams or test
purposes specified as transitions systems. All these techniques represent an
efficient solution to the state space explosion problem by restricting the
possible executions of the system to a limited, and hopefully more accurate,
subset of admissible traces. In addition, they make it possible to capture the
human expertise for testing specific situations that can not be targeted by a
systematic model coverage approach.

This first edition of the workshop on Scenario-Based Testing aims at gathering
ideas and techniques in the area of semi-automated testing. It is intended to
assess the effectiveness of available techniques and promote original research
ideas that can be concretized into an industrial context.


The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
* Languages and formalisms to design scenarios,
* Techniques and tools to automate scenario-based test generation,
* Applications of scenario-based testing, such as: security testing,
web services testing, database testing, object-oriented software testing,
embedded systems testing, etc.
* Integration of Scenario-Based Testing with other testing techniques
* Empirical studies
* Scenarios and software evolutions
* Application to industry


* Papers due: January 7, 2011 (extended)
* Notification: January 31, 2011
* Camera-ready due: February 15, 2011
