ICT Verification and Validation

QUATIC’2012 Thematic Track:
ICT Verification and Validation


Due to the heterogeneity, openness and continuous evolution of today’s systems as well as the technical and semantic interoperability barriers, security and trust concerns, the ICT Verification and Validation is still a challenge for academic research, companies and practitioners. New solutions, techniques, methodologies, practical approaches and automatic facilities, that can be integrated in the ICT lifecycle targeting ICT quality assurance need to be further investigated.

The ICT Verification and Validation track aims to collect solutions and proposals for addressing the challenging quality aspects and related problems, with particular attention on approaches, methods and techniques that can reduce the gap between research and practice.

Suggested topics of interest for this track therefore include, but are not restricted to:

  • V&V approaches in the context of SPL, MDD, AOSD, CBSE, or SOA
  • V&V of non-functional requirements (reliability, performance, usability, security, …)
  • Formal and quantitative methods to V&V
  • Off-line vs. on-line approaches to V&V
  • Automation of V&V activities
  • Empirical studies on V&V approaches and processes
  • Case studies and success stories of application of V&V research results

Paper submission

Authors should submit to http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=quatic2012 a PDF version of their paper in IEEE format, not exceeding 6 pages, including figures, references, and appendices. Submissions must be original and will be reviewed by the Track Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the electronic IEEE proceedings of QUATIC’2012, subject to one of the authors registering for the conference. The authors of the 3 best papers of this thematic track will be invited to submit extended versions to the main track of the conference. A small number of work-in-progress papers, not exceeding 3 pages, can also be accepted. Additional information on the submission process of QUATIC’2012 and its tracks can be found at http://2012.quatic.org/tracks/thematic-tracks/ and http://2012.quatic.org and http://2012.quatic.org.
