QUATIC 2021: International Conference on the Quality of Information
and Communications Technology

Track: ICT Verification and Validation

Online Conference

September, 8-11, 2021

Website: https://2021.quatic.org/thematic-tracks/verification-and-validation


Modern software technologies pose many challenges to the development
of Verification and Validation (V&V) solutions. On the one hand,
software processes are evolving towards new continuous development and
testing practices where software has to be developed and deployed
quickly to fulfill the strict requirements of competitive customers.
This requires new cost-effective V&V solutions that go side by side
with software development advances.  On the other hand, the ICT
systems become more and more complex and new classes of systems, such
as self-adaptive systems or systems of systems, are attracting a
growing research interest. These systems make V&V activities more
challenging, due to their highly dynamic and configurable nature. From
these trends, the need arises of increasing the research activity on
V&V of ICT systems, so as to guarantee high quality assurance of the
complex software systems, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness
of the software development process, while reducing the effort devoted
to V&V.

The “ICT Verification and Validation” track of QUATIC'2021 represents
an active forum inviting both researchers and practitioners to present
and discuss their recent achievements in V&V, novel V&V techniques and
tools, empirical V&V studies and V&V success stories or any other form
of original research contribution.

Suggested topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
•	Requirement-based and model-based testing
•	Approaches and tools for formal verification and model checking
•	Techniques and tools for functional and non-functional assessment
•	Manual testing practices and techniques
•	Safety, security and privacy testing
•	Software quality metrics
•	Quality assurance in agile methodologies and continuous delivery
•	Search-based and machine learning approaches to testing
•	Software reliability and resilience
•	Test automation
•	Dynamic/runtime/online V&V techniques
•	Fault localization
•	Program analysis techniques
•	Scalability and practical applicability of testing
•	Theory of software analysis and testing
•	Software certification
•	V&V in specific domains, such as healthcare, telecommunication,
cloud computing, mobile, big data, automotive, cyber-physical systems,
Internet of Things, education, social network, etc.
•	Applications, experiences, case studies on V&V
•	Perspectives, challenges and issues in V&V

As with previous years, QUATIC'2021 proceedings will be published in a
volume of Springer CCIS Series (Communications in Computer and
Information Science). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google
Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS
volumes are also submitted for inclusion in ISI Proceedings. The best
papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a special issue
with the Software Quality Journal.
