4th International Workshop on Large-Scale Testing (LT 2015)

LT 2015 web site: http://lt2015.eecs.yorku.ca/

Abstract

Many large-scale software systems (e.g., e-commerce websites, telecommunication infrastructures and enterprise systems, etc.) must service hundreds, thousands or even millions of concurrent requests.
Many field problems of these systems are due to their inability to scale to field workloads, rather than feature bugs. In addition to conventional functional testing, these systems must be tested with large volumes of concurrent requests (called the load) to ensure the quality of these systems. Large-scale testing includes all different objectives and strategies of testing large scale software systems using load. Examples of large-scale testing are live upgrade testing, load testing, high availability testing, operational profile testing, performance testing, reliability testing, stability testing and stress testing. Large-scale testing is a difficult task requiring a great understanding of the system under test. Practitioners face many challenges such as tooling (choosing and implementing the testing tools), environments (software and hardware setup) and time (limited time to design, test, and analyze). Yet, little research is done in the software engineering domain concerning this topic. This one-day workshop brings together software testing researchers, practitioners and tool developers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of conducting research on large-scale software testing.

Submission

The workshops solicit the following two tracks of submissions to be reviewed by the workshop program committee: technical papers (maximum 4 pages) and extended abstracts for industry talks (maximum 700 words). Technical papers should follow the standard ACM SIG proceedings format and need to be submitted electronically via EasyChair.
