Call for Papers QA&TEST 2024

Deadline for your contribution until April 2

The International QA&TEST Embedded Technical Committee seeks methods, techniques, and tools to assist engineers in developing and testing embedded and complex systems efficiently and effectively.

All approaches to different testing methods, quality management, test automation, testing techniques, or development methods for embedded and complex systems are welcome.

Special attention will be given to documents addressing challenges posed by the theme “when software meets hardware.”

Our program aims to represent all industrial sectors, including mobile, automotive, electronics, etc. Therefore, the QA&TEST Embedded 2024 programme should address functional and reliability aspects, how to address security, or constraints imposed by real-time devices, etc. All of this should be done using different testing strategies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, formal methods, prototyping, simulation, etc.

Some of the topics we would like to see at QA&TEST 2024 are:

  • IA and Machine Learning (how to test/how to use as a tool to test)
  • DevOps (Incluiding Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery)/ DevTestOps
  • Specific test techniques and toos for embedded software testing
  • Challenges in test automation of embedded testing
  • Setups / Hardware for testing
  • Integration testing strategies by different business context
  • Model Based Testing/usage of AI on MBT
  • Test design and specification techniques

But of course, we are always open to receive proposals with innovative and different topics. We are always happy to be surprised by your ideas!

How to submit a paper

The following types of presentations can be submitted: Tutorials, Workshops, and talks of 45 minutes. The evaluation of the received proposals will be based on the relevance of the topic to the conference’s objectives and the quality and innovative content of the submitted document.

A short video (3 to 5 minutes) introducing the speaker, the proposal, and highlighting its novelty and relevance to the conference will be highly welcomed and valued. (Mandatory if you have never participated in QA&TEST before).

* We are seeking innovative presentations; please indicate if your proposal has been presented (or is currently under review) at other conferences. If so, please specify where and explain how both proposals differ.
