The VTS Program Committee invites original, unpublished Paper Submissions for VTS 2020. Paper submissions must be complete manuscripts, up to six pages (inclusive of figures, tables, and bibliography) in a standard IEEE two-column format; papers exceeding the page limit will be returned without review. Authors must clearly explain the significance of the work, highlight novel features, and describe its current status. On the title page, please include: author name(s) and affiliation(s), and the mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address of the contact author. An abstract and five keywords identifying the topic area are also required.
By submitting a paper the authors confirm that the paper has not been previously published elsewhere in any medium (paper or electronic) and the research material (including portions or extensions) has not been simultaneously submitted for review and or publication in any form (conference/journal) and will not be submitted for the full duration of the review process.
INNOVATIVE PRACTICES TRACKS AND SPECIAL SESSIONS
Proposals for the Innovative Practices and Special Sessions tracks are also invited.
Innovative Practices Tracks highlight cutting-edge challenges faced by test practitioners, and innovative solutions employed to address them.
Special sessions can include panels, embedded tutorials, or hot topic presentations.
Innovative practices and special session track proposals should include a title, name and contact information of the session organizer(s), a 150-to-200 word abstract, and a list of prospective participants.
Each Special Session will be given the opportunity to publish a paper (ten pages in a standard IEEE two-column format) in the final conference proceedings summarizing the topic covered by the special session.
Each Innovative Practices session will have a one page coverage in the final conference proceedings, based on the abstracts of the presentations in that session.
All submissions are to be made electronically through the VTS website.
A submission will be considered as evidence that, upon acceptance, the author(s) will submit a final camera-ready version of the paper. Registration of at least one author by the camera-ready deadline and presentation of the paper at the symposium are also required for inclusion of the paper in the published proceedings.
VTS 2020 will present a Best Paper Award, a Best Special Session Award, and a Best Innovative Practices Session Award based on the evaluations of reviewers, attendees, and an invited panel of judges. We also plan to organize various Student Activities including the TTTC Best Doctoral Thesis Contest and PhD Poster Forum, details for which will be made available through the VTS website.
