+++ Topics of Interest +++

TAIC PART invites submissions relevant to practice and research including

+ Industry experience reports: practical and generalizable insights into how to apply and extend existing approaches to software testing and analysis
+ Research methods for collaborative research: ways that industry and academia can collaborate to further knowledge on testing, verification and validation
+ Industrial challenges with real-world testing: describe a real-world software testing problem for which industry seeks help from academia or vice versa
+ Knowledge exchange between industry and academia: how can new results and knowledge be exchanged between the two partners

+++ Submission and Proceedings +++

+ Regular Papers (6 pages): Experience reports, research papers, longer challengebpapers (extension up to 10 pages may be possible on request)
+ Fast Abstracts (2 pages): Challenges in practice and research, work in progress, positions statements
