Workshop Overview & Goals

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from both Academia and Industry with the aim of sharing ideas and presenting research on the state of the art in automated testing techniques for event based software/systems (EBS). Examples of EBS include graphical user interfaces (GUIs), web applications, mobile applications, network protocols, embedded software, web services, device drivers and IoT.
One of the key properties of EBS is the simplified, implicit interaction between components that is based on the exchange of events. The interaction is limited to one component publishing an event that can be received by one or more other components, with no inherent coordination, continuation or context preservation. Due to the loose coupling and the implicit interaction between its components, event-based systems may be highly scalable and easy to evolve, but at the same time they can be more difficult to test and debug.
In this Workshop we welcome submissions regarding every aspect of EBS testing, including techniques for test case generation and execution, oracle definition, testing tools and environments, regression testing, security testing, etc.


Important Dates

Paper submission July 15, 2017 , 23:59 (anywhere in world)

Workshop papers notification August 5, 2017

Workshop papers camera-ready September 2, 2017


We solicit papers novel papers related to testing (functional, non-functional, security) for EBS, or on the topic of benchmarking. Papers should be of one of the following types:

Each paper in the first three categories (full, position and demo) will be reviewed by at least three referees. Papers should be submitted as PDF files in standard ACM two-column conference format (Latex, Word). Industrial presentations are submitted in the form of a 2-page overview and 2 sample presentation slides as pdf files. They will be evaluated by at least two members of the Program Committee for relevance and soundness. Papers accepted for the workshop will appear in the ACM digital library, providing a lasting archived record of the workshop proceedings. Papers will be submitted through EasyChair .
The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a special issue of a journal .
