Welcome to the 10th International Workshop on Search-Based Software Testing
Buenos Aires, Argentina, May 22-23th 2017

To be held in conjunction with ICSE 2017 - ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering

Search-Based Software Testing (SBST) is the application of optimizing search techniques (for example, Genetic Algorithms) to solve problems in software testing. SBST is used to generate test data, prioritize test cases, minimize test suites, optimize software test oracles, reduce human oracle cost, verify software models, test service-orientated architectures, construct test suites for interaction testing, and validate real-time properties.

The objectives of this workshop are to bring together researchers and industrial practitioners both from SBST and the wider software engineering community to collaborate, to share experience and provide directions for future research, and to encourage the use of search techniques in novel aspects of software testing in combination with other aspects of the software engineering lifecycle.
