WISEST 2007

Title:ACM Workshop on Integrating System Environments into Software Testing (co-located with ACM ISSTA 2007)

Synopsis:
The Workshop on Integrating System Environments into Software Testing (WISEST 2007) establishes the first forum for the discussion of software testing and analysis techniques that explicitly incorporate the environment of a software system. Since a modern software application often interacts with a diverse execution environment in a complicated and unpredictable manner, there is a clear need for approaches that test an application, an application's execution environment, and the interaction between the software application and its environment.

This workshop will bring together researchers and developers from the programming language and operating system domains to discuss recent work at the intersection of these fields. It will be a platform for discussing new visions, challenges, experiences, problems, and solutions arising from the application of advanced programming and software engineering concepts to operating systems construction, and vice versa.
