ICST 2024 - Industry Track

ICST 2024, 17th IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation, is thrilled to invite you to participate in our prestigious Industry Track. At ICST 2024, we recognize the crucial role that industry professionals play in shaping the landscape of software testing, verification, and validation.


About ICST 2024 - Industry Track

The Industry Track at ICST 2024 aligns seamlessly with the conference’s overarching themes of innovation, quality, and practicality. We extend our warmest invitation to high-caliber submissions that transcend boundaries and bring a fresh perspective to the software testing field.


Our Expectations

While the Industry Track shares the same overarching topics as the Research Track, we emphasize real-world impact and practicality over novelty. We are looking for submissions that:

  • Highlight Useful Testing Tools: Present groundbreaking testing tools that have demonstrable real-world utility.
  • Share Success Stories: Showcase your experiences and success stories in applying software testing theories and methodologies to practical scenarios.
  • Unveil Promising Prototypes: Introduce prototypes with the potential to revolutionize software testing practices in the near future.


Real-World Evaluation and Beyond

We believe in the power of practicality. Industry Track submissions should ideally be grounded in real-world, industrial data. In addition, we encourage discussions on non-functional aspects such as scalability and reliability, as well as comparisons to established industrial best practices.


Publication and Recognition

Selected Industry Track papers will be published in the ICST 2024 proceedings and prominently listed in the esteemed IEEE databases. This is your opportunity to contribute to the global knowledge repository and gain recognition for your valuable insights.


Topics of Interest

Topics for submission to the Industry Track include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications of software testing theories in practice
  • Applying machine learning techniques to testing
  • Empirical studies
  • Experience reports
  • Formal verification
  • Mobile testing
  • Model-based testing
  • Model checking
  • Privacy testing
  • Search-based software testing
  • Security testing
  • Software reliability
  • Test automation
  • Testability and design
  • Testing/debugging frameworks and tools
  • Testing AI products
  • Testing and development processes
  • Testing education
  • Domain-specific testing (e.g., autonomous vehicles, IoT applications, advanced control systems, mobile or web app testing, embedded systems testing, blockchain applications, concurrent systems, GUI testing, etc.)


Peer Review Process

Each submission will undergo a rigorous evaluation process, reviewed by at least three members of the ICST Program Committee. Don’t miss this opportunity to be a driving force in the advancement of software testing and validation. Join us at ICST 2024’s Industry Track and be part of the transformation.


Important Dates

  • Abstract Deadline: Wednesday, October 18, 2023
  • Full Paper Submission: Wednesday, October 25, 2023
  • Author Notification: Wednesday, December 6, 2023
  • Camera Ready: Friday, January 19, 2024

For comprehensive submission guidelines and further information, please visit our conference website: https://conf.researchr.org/home/icst-2024


Double Anonymous

Industry track papers do not need to be double-anonymized. Since industry papers typically rely heavily on the industrial/practical context in which the work was carried out it would be too much to ask to require this context to be anonymized. Please contact the industry track chairs if you have more questions.

Together, let’s shape the future of software testing! We eagerly anticipate your contributions to ICST 2024 - Industry Track


Submission Format

Industry papers must conform to the two-column IEEE conference publication format. Templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word are available from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html: please use the letter format template and conference option.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format: they must not exceed ten pages, plus up to two pages of references. Submissions will be handled via https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=icst2024industrytrac.

Papers must neither have been previously accepted for publication nor be under submission in another conference or journal.

For your paper to be published in the ICST 2024 conference proceedings, at least one of the authors of the paper must register for the conference and confirm that she/he will present the paper in person.

The abstract submission is an optional step. You are welcome to submit the full paper directly without submitting an abstract. We look forward to receiving your contributions!
