    Testing: Academic and Industrial Conference -
    Practice and Research Techniques
    (TAIC PART 2009)

    Windsor, United Kingdom
    September 4 - 6, 2009

    - Theme and Goals

    The Testing: Academic and Industrial Conference 2009 (TAIC PART
    2009) establishes a forum for the publication of papers related to
    software testing and analysis. The theme of TAIC PART is
    transferring software testing technology from academia to
    industry. TAIC PART aims to forge collaborations between industry
    and academia. The goals of TAIC PART 2009 include the articulation
    of fundamental research questions in the field of software testing
    and analysis. TAIC PART also focuses on the practical challenges
    that are often faced by software developers in industry.

    - Call for Papers

    TAIC PART 2009 solicits experience, tool, original research,

    Technology Transfer

    TAIC PART solicits papers that focus on the testing and analysis of
    software applications that include, but are not limited to, the
    following types:

    Embedded and Real-Time Systems
    Operating Systems
    Parallel, Distributed, and Cluster Applications

    - Types of Papers

    - Experience reports should provide practical and generalizable
    insights into how to apply and extend existing approaches to
    software testing and analysis.

    - Tool papers must focus on the design, implementation, and
    evaluation of software testing and analysis tools.

    - Original Research papers will explore novel software testing
    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 is non-academic. These papers will describe a
    real-world software testing problem for which help is sought
    from the academic research community.

    - Academic Challenge papers must have at least one author whose
    affiliation is non-industry. These papers should explain a
    software testing research problem for which help is sought from
    industry partners.

    - Fast Abstract papers are short papers that describes late
    breaking results or works in progress. These papers are ideal
    for PhD students who are interested in receiving feedback about
    dissertation research that is an early stage.

    - Paper Evaluation

    All papers will undergo a rigorous examination by at least three
    members of the program committee. The program co-chairs and the
    program committee will provide thoughtful and fair reviews that
    furnish detailed insights into ways for improving and extending the
    papers. All submitted papers will be evaluated according to (i)
    relevance to the conference themes and goals and (ii) clarity and

    - Experience reports will be evaluated with respect to the
    significance and generality of the described testing experience.

    - Research and tool papers will be judged by the technical merit,
    novelty, and evaluation of the described technique or tool.

    - Industry and academic challenge papers will be assessed
    according to their ability to forge partnerships and ultimately
    yield successful solutions.

    - Fast abstract papers will be evaluated according to their
    ability to generate discussion and suggest interesting areas for
    future research.

    The results described in the submitted paper must be unpublished and
    should not be under review at other workshops, conferences, or

    - Paper Formatting

    Papers should be formatted using the IEEE conference style.
    Including all references and figures, a research paper must not
    exceed the ten page limit and the experience, tool, and industry and
    academic challenge papers should not be longer than five pages.
    Finally, fast abstract papers must be two pages in length. Authors
    should submit a PDF version of their paper through the TAIC PART
    2009 paper submission site.

    - Conference Proceedings

    The accepted papers will be published with ISBN by the IEEE Computer
    Society and they will appear in the IEEE digital library. A special
    issue of the Journal of Systems and Software will also publish
    revisions of selected papers from TAIC PART 2009.
