The Internet is rapidly expanding into all sectors of our society. Web-based applications are complex, heterogeneous, distributed, multiplatform, multilingual, multimedia, autonomous, cooperative, ever evolving and rapidly updated software systems. Testing and maintaining web-based applications are a nightmare. Traditional quality models, testing methods and tools are not adequate for web-based applications because they do not address problems associated with the new features of web-based applications. At present, web-based applications testing and maintenance are still an unexplored area and rely on ad hoc testing processes. Little has been reported on quality assurance and systematic testing methods and techniques for web-based applications.
general theme of the workshop is on the quality assurance and testing web-based
applications. It aims at providing a forum for researchers, practitioners and
tools vendors to exchange ideas, research results, practical experiences and
lessons learned on quality assurance and testing of web-based applications. The
first and the second workshops (QATWBA’04 and QATWBA’05) in this series were
successfully held in
We are seeking position papers addressing all aspects of quality assurance and testing of web-based applications, including but are not limited to:
Methods and Techniques
Original papers not being submitted to journals or other conferences will be considered. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members according to its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. We welcome all position papers that address emerging issues, present novel but half-baked ideas, or report on practical experiences.
Papers should be in English and no more than 6 pages
including all figures and tables. The format of submitted papers must follow
the IEEE conference proceedings guidelines. Papers should be submitted
electronically by April
Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the 30th IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPASC 2006) by IEEE Computer Society Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper published in the proceedings.
The authors of accepted papers of the workshop will be invited to submit a revised version of the paper for publication in a special issue of a journal (should indicate which journal in the final version of the CFP). Submissions to the special issue will be reviewed again according to the journal's quality standard.
