    techniques. These papers should furnish a detailed theoretical
    and/or empirical evaluation of the proposed approach.

    - Industry Challenge papers must have at least one author whose
    affiliation in non-academic. These papers will describe a
    real-world software testing problem for which help is sought
    from the academic research community.
