Testing: Academic and Industrial Conference -
Practice and Research Techniques (TAIC PART 2010)

Windsor, United Kingdom
September 3 - 5, 2010


We would like to heartily invite you to participate at Testing:
Academic and Industrial Conference - Practice and Research Techniques
(TAIC PART 2010).

Theme and Goals:
TAIC PART is a conference that aims to forge collaboration between
industry and academia on the challenging and exciting problem of
software testing. It is sponsored by representatives of both industry
and academia, bringing together commercial and industrial software
developers and users with academic researchers working on the theory
and practice of software testing. The goals of TAIC PART range from
the articulation of fundamental research questions in the field of
software testing and analysis to practical challenges that are often
faced by software developers in industry.  TAIC PART is a unique event
that strives to combine the important aspects of a software testing
conference, workshop, and retreat.
