Fourth International Workshop on the
Automation of  Software Test

May 18-19, 2009

At  31st International Conference  on Software Engineering (ICSE’09)
Vancouver, Canada, May 16-24, 2009

Sponsored by:


Special Theme: Testing Web Services
(Plus: Business and Industry Case Studies Track) 


In software development practice, testing accounts for as much as 50% of the total development effort. It is therefore imperative to reduce the cost and improve the effectiveness of software testing by automating the testing process. In the past decades, a great amount of research effort has been spent on automatic test case generation, automatic test oracles, etc. Test automation is also becoming an important part of software testing practice.

The workshop is the successor of the first three AST workshops held at ICSE 2006-2008. It will provide researchers and practitioners a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences, understanding of the problems, visions for the future, and promising solutions to the problems. The workshop will also provide a platform for researchers and developers of testing tools to work together to identify the problems in the theory and practice of software test automation and to set an agenda and lay the foundation for future development.
