Submission Deadline: Mar 31, 2021
Notification of Acceptance: Jun 30, 2021
Camera Ready Version Due : Oct 01, 2021


This special issue welcomes contributions regarding approaches, techniques, tools and experience reports about adopting and improving test automation cost/effectiveness, as well as empirical studies and case studies investigating the cost and benefits of test automation.

Call For Paper

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Approaches and tools for improving test automation effectiveness and ROI, for example by 
         ○ Reducing development and maintenance efforts/costs (e.g., automated generation of test code and self-healing test scripts)
         ○ Increasing test coverage and bug detection
  • Costs and benefits of Test Automation in modern systems and applications, for example:
         ○ Web applications
         ○ Mobile applications (e.g., Android, iOS)
         ○ Internet of things systems
         ○ Machine learning and artificial intelligence based systems
  • Costs and benefits of Test Automation at any testing level, for example:
        ○ End-to-End, acceptance, integration, functional, unit
  • Measurement frameworks relevant for Test Automation
        ○ Software and process metrics
        ○ Technical debt in software testing
  • Empirical studies concerning costs and benefits analysis and evaluating the cost-benefit trade-off of Test Automation (note that Surveys, (Systematic) Literature Reviews or Mapping Studies are out of the scope of the special issue and will be desk-rejected)
       ○ Experiments
       ○ Case studies
       ○ Comparative experiences and evaluations
