Co-located with IEEE International Conference on Software Testing,
Verification and Validation (ICST'13)
          March 22, 2013 in Abbaye de Neumünster, Luxembourg


Important Dates:

* Camera-ready version due: February 15, 2013
* Workshop date: March 22, 2013

About A-MOST 2013:
The increasing complexity of software results in new challenges for
testing. Model Based Testing (MBT) continues to be an important research
area, where new approaches, methods and tools make MBT techniques more
deployable and useful for industry than ever. Models and different
abstractions can ease comprehension of a complex system and ease test
generation and automation. A-MOST has proven to be a successful workshop
that brings researchers and practitioners together discussing formal and
semi-formal approaches, specification formats and notations that
contribute to simplifying complex aspects of a system. The goal is to
bring researchers and practitioners together to discuss state of the
art, practice and future prospects in MBT.

Topics of interest:
This conference would like to encourage the submission of original
papers that deal with any of the following topics, but not limited to:
1. The models used in MBT
2. The processes, techniques, and tools that support MBT
3. Evaluation (i.e., the evaluation of software using MBT and the
evaluation of MBT) Models
4. Models for component, integration and system testing
5. Product-line models & (Hybrid) embedded system models
6. Systems-of-systems models & Architectural models
7. Models for orchestration and choreography of services
8. Executable models and simulation
9. Environment and use models
10. Non-functional models and quantitative MBT
11. Model-based test generation algorithms
12. Application of model checking techniques in model-based testing
13. Tracing from requirements model to test models
14. Performance and predictability of model-driven development
15. Test model evolution during the software lifecycle
16. Generation of testing-infrastructures from models
17. Combinatorial approaches for MBT Statistical testing
18. Estimating dependability (e.g., security, safety, reliability) using
19. Coverage metrics and measurements for structural and
(non-)functional models
20. Cost of testing, economic impact of MBT
21. Empirical validation, experiences, case studies using MBT

Submission and Proceedings:
Full papers should be submitted before January 7, 2013 in PDF through
easy-chair submission web-site at

Papers will be reviewed by at least three members from the program
committee and notice of accepted papers will be sent before February 1,
Accepted papers must be orally presented during the workshop to be
published within ICST proceedings. Accepted papers will be published in
the IEEE Digital Library.
