QA&TEST 2015 launches the Call for Papers - Share your knowledge and experience

QA&TEST invites the professionals of QA & testing for Embedded Systems to share their knowledge and experiences in the Conference. The Call for Papers has started and will end on 23rd March 2015.

Participation as a speaker at QA&TEST will give you the opportunity to establish direct contact with directors and senior executives of technology companies. QA&TEST will allow you to improve your business network and build relationships with potential customers, from the vantage position of being recognized as an expert in QA & Testing for Embedded Systems.

As it is traditional, two types of papers may be submitted:

  • Tutorial: It is a 4 hour session, practical and interactive, transferring knowledge about technologies, tools, instruments and working methods, showing clearly and concisely the practical elements of their implementation.
  • Track Presentations: 45 minute presentations on topics of QA & Testing for Embedded Systems and Best Practices in the QA & Testing field.

QA&TEST 2014 was wonderful; thank you very much!

The organization of QA&Test would like to thank everybody who participated in the 13th edition of the conference. We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed the high quality of this year's presentations. Thanks to all speakers, attendees, chairpersons, sponsors and exhibitors.

As always we awarded one speaker, among the track presentations, with the best Speaker Award. This year it has been a tough competition but finally, this award was for Paul Derckx, from Philips, because of the high quality of his presentation, entitled "Risk based test strategy – implementation in a medical device industry".

The photos of the Conference are already available in our Flickr. Don't miss a thing about this fantastic conference!

All the secrets of Testing Techniques, in Track 4

QA&TEST will have six presentations focused on Testing Techniques, gathered around track 4, all along the Thursday.

The track will start with the presentation of Shashi K. Katiyar, who will discuss about theeffective use of complexity metrics for SW quality improvement. Chris C. Schotanus will analyse how to bring product risk analysis to a higher level and Debarchan Dash will explain the static and dynamic analysis methods, especially important in the areas when program reliability, response time and resources consumed are crucial criteria. In the afternoon, Malini Mohan will focus on the abstract and concrete interpretation of static analysis.

The track 4 will be completed with the presentations of Pieter Koopman and Jaime Panigua. Both of them will also give Tool Lab demonstrations. During his presentation, Pieter Koopman will talk about multipurpose models for testing embedded systems. Jaime Paniagua will show the keys to undertake correctly a load and performance testing process, from the innovative perspective of an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory, like Software Quality Systems is, the only in Spain and one of the few in the world.

Talk-workshop on Load and Performance Testing

Load and performance testing are essential to analyze the answer  of a system and to detect the bottlenecks with a negative impact. These tests will help us to predict the behavior and to ensure it performs the functions it has been designed for, without services loses and with a time of answer optimus and stable.

Within track 4, Testing Techniques, Jaime Paniagua, of Software Quality Systems, will show the keys to undertake correctly a load and performance testing process, from the innovative perspective of an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory, like Software Quality Systems is, the only in Spain and one of the few in the world.

With a practical presentation, Jaime will guide us through techniques and development process of load, performance and stress, at the time he will show the benefits and peculiarities of an accredited laboratory.

Track 1: Test Management

Track 1, Test Management, will take place the first day of QA&TEST, immediately after the opening keynote. The first speaker will be Peter Varhol, who will examine the ways in which embedded devices and machine-to-machine interactions have become a staple of our lives, and how they have grown in complexity and interactivity over the last decade.

In the other hand, Jon Hagar will present a taxonomy covering mobile-embedded errors. In the mobile-embedded software world, many testers do not know the bugs well enough to efficiently solve them. Using a taxonomy to support the testing in the mobile-embedded systems domain, offers insight into how and what to test differently.

Come to QA&EST and learn with the best experts on QA&Testing of the entire world!
