About ICST 2012:
The International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and
Validation (ICST) is the premier conference in all areas related to
software quality. Software systems present unique engineering
challenges to the tester, not least because they can exhibit
non-determinism and emergent behaviour. No other engineering artefact
is more closely intertwined with human activities, resulting in
complex hybrid systems that involve software, human judgment and,
sometimes, political, legal and social processes. As a result,
software verification and validation, including testing, inspections,
model analysis, safety certification, etc. draws upon a wide spectrum
of disciplines, including engineering, mathematics, and psychology. It
touches on all aspects of computer science and software engineering
research and impacts on almost all software activities.
