ISSTA is the leading research conference in software testing and analysis, bringing together academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners to exchange new ideas, problems, and experience.

Responding to the growth and impact of our thriving community, ISSTA has changed from its traditional biannual schedule to an annual one. In 2008 ISSTA will be held in Seattle, Washington.

Technical Program

Authors are invited to submit technical papers describing original research in testing or analysis of computer software. Papers describing theoretical or empirical research, new techniques, or in-depth case studies of testing and analysis methods and tools are welcome. Submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this symposium. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright release.

Doctoral Symposium

The ISSTA Doctoral Symposium is a forum for Ph.D. students working in the area of software testing and analysis to publicly discuss their research goals, methods, and preliminary results with senior researchers from the software testing and analysis community.

Workshop Proposals

One day Workshops will offer the opportunity for exchanging views and advancing ideas on hot research topics. Held before the main conference, workshops provide a forum for the rapid dissemination of ongoing research activities. Researchers interested in organizing a workshop should submit a proposal by email to the conference chairs: chairs
