    ISoLA 2014: Special Track on Risk-Based Testing

    Risk-Based Testing

    ISoLA_2014In many development projects, testing has to be done under severe pressure due to limited resources and a challenging time schedule. As a result, the resources for test design and test execution need to be optimized. Risk-based testing utilizes identified technical or functional risks of the system to be built in order to prioritize the activities along the test process, i.e. test planning, design, execution and evaluation. The precise understanding of risks, as well as the focused treatment of risks, has become one of the cornerstones for critical decisions within complex social and technical environments. This special track serves as a platform for researchers and practitioners to present approaches, results, experience and advances in risk-based testing. Its topics of interest include (and are not limited to):

    • Risk assessment for testing purposes
    • Risk-based test process optimization
    • Risk-based test planning, design, prioritization or selection
    • Model-based approaches to risk-based testing
    • Support of standard-compliant quality assurance by risk-based testing (e.g. IEC 61508, ISO 26262, Common Criteria)
    • Application of risk-based testing in an industrial environment
    • Risk-based testing of safety-critical or security-critical systems -
    • Empirical studies related to risk-based testing approaches
    • Tools and languages for risk-based testing.
