Objectives

The objective of the workshop is to bring together industry and science by providing a platform for discussion, interaction and collaboration. Industrial papers should either describe challenges of system or software testing that could trigger future research activities or present comparable results of applying techniques for risk analysis or risk-based testing. Research papers are expected to present promising ideas or possible solutions to industrial challenges in the field of risk-based quality assurance. Submitted papers should cover at least one of the following topics:

  • Languages for capturing risk information
  • Formal and semi-formal risk analysis techniques (e.g., FTA, FMEA, etc.)
  • Continuous risk assessment and testing
  • Risk-based/risk-oriented testing (including formal verification techniques)
  • Test-based risk assessment
  • Best practices/methodologies for integrating risk analysis and testing
  • Support of standard-compliant quality assurance by risk-based testing (e.g., IEC 61508, ISO 26262, Common Criteria)
  • Verification and validation of safety-/security-critical systems
  • Risk-based testing with model-based technologies
  • Risk-based test automation and tool support
  • Quality and quality improvement of risk-based test models
  • Limitations and restrictions of integrated risk analysis and testing, its costs and economic impact

This year’s edition has a special focus on system assurance, in particular methods, techniques, languages and tools for expressing systems assurance cases.
