The second workshop on Joining AcadeMiA and Industry Contributions to
Test Automation and Model-based Testing, JAMAICA 2014
California, July 21st 2014 (parallel to ISSTA Conference)

In industry, testing activities now account for more than 50% of the
total software development effort. People strive to find solutions able
to reduce such costs without compromising the final quality. Key roles
in this situation are approaches that push industry toward better test
automation, to minimize manual, error-prone activities in test case
generation and execution.
The JAMAICA workshop intends to foster the discussion on the current
practices for automating and model-based testing activities among
academia and industry (such as automotive, avionics, and factory
automation). This should show the community what impact these activities
may have on the overall cost/quality trade-off and on the development cycle.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Model-based testing (MBT)
- Automatic testing in model-driven engineering & component-based
- Test automation or MBT in agile development
- Automatic or model-based testing for service-oriented & agent-oriented
- Testing Tools and Open source platforms enabling test automation
- Strategies, methodologies and techniques for automatic generation and
execution of test cases
- Quality measures for test generation, especially in safety critical
- Standards and accreditation related to test automation
- Cloud computing platforms for enabling test execution in distributed
environments, and testing of distributed systems
- Domain Specific Languages and solutions for test automation and MBT
- Success- or failure-stories about practical experiences and issues in
the development, operation and maintenance of industrial testing

Submission Guidelines

JAMAICA is seeking two kinds of submissions: regular and short papers.
Regular papers are up to 6 double-column pages, describing fully
accomplished work in industry or research. Short Papers are up to 3
double-column pages, describing work in industry or research that has
not yet produced the results required for a regular paper, but that
deserves to be shared with the community at an early stage due to its
novelty and potential impact.
All papers must contain original, unpublished work and will be accepted
and included in the workshop program and proceedings according to the
following criteria: relevance of the addressed topic to the scope of the
workshop; novelty of the proposed contribution; technical relevance and
practicality of presented ideas; relevance of case studies and of
results for the industrial community; writing and presentation accuracy
and style.
Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the
EasyChair conference system:
Submitted papers must be in English, in PDF format and comply with the
ACM policies available at:
Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will be declined
without review; all others will be reviewed by an international program

Conference Proceedings

The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM. At the workshop, the
proceedings will be made digitally available.
