The 8th Halmstad Summer School on Testing

Halmstad University, Sweden

(Organised in cooperation with the TOCSYC Network)

June 11 - June 14, 2018




Software testing accounts for a major part of software development cost and
yet the current practice of software testing is often insufficiently
structured and disciplined.
There have been various attempts in the past decades to bring more rigour
and structure into this field,
resulting in several industrial-strength processes, techniques and tools
for different levels of testing.
The 8th Halmstad Summer School on Testing provides an overview of the state
of the art in testing,
including theory, industrial cases, tools and hands-on tutorials by
internationally-renowned researchers.

Ph.D. Symposium

The deadline for Ph.D. abstract submission is May 15, 2018.

We have 8 time slots for Ph.D. presentations, where each student gets
to present her/his research project (and possibly results) and receive
feedback from our experts.
We solicit abstracts of 2 pages, solely authored by a Ph.D. student, in the
EasyChair Style in order to make a selection (see: http://www.easychair.org/
The abstract should contain a clear overview of the problem description,
approach, (existing results, if any,) and future milestone.

Abstract submissions can already be made  via https://easychair.org/
conferences/?conf=hsst2018 .


The summer school will be held on the campus of Halmstad University  in
Halmstad, Sweden.
Halmstad is a popular summer destination located on the Swedish west coast.
Just a few minutes by bicycle or bus takes you from campus to city centre,
sandy beaches or forested Galgberget Hill.
Trains take you directly to Göteborg in about an hour, to the
Malmö-Copenhagen area in about 2 hours and to Stockholm in 4.5 hours.
There are also daily flights from Halmstad Airport (and the nearby
Ängelholm Airport) to Stockholm Bromma Airport.

If you are flying in internationally it is generally easiest to fly into
Copenhagen (CPH) airport (also known as Kastrup).
The best thing about flying into CPH is that you just buy a train ticket
when you arrive at the airport and simply take a train from the airport
directly toHalmstad.
