Nov. 3-4, 2016

Kunming, Yunnan

Call for paper

The Annual Conference on Software Analysis, Testing and Evolution (SATE) is organized by Technical Committee of Software Engineering (TCSE), Technical Committee of System Software (TCSS), and Technical Committee of Information System (TCIS) of China Computer Federation (CCF) with the focus on Software Analysis, Software Testing and Evolution. This conference aims at providing a premier forum for software engineering researchers, professional software analysts, testers and developers to present research findings, share practical experience and exchange academic ideas.

SATE 2016 will be co-located with the National Software Application Conference (NASAC 2016) and held in Kunming, Yunnan from November 3rd to 4th, 2016. We invite academic researchers and industrial practitioners from software engineering and other related areas to exchange ideas about research and practical issues related to software analysis, testing and evolution, including theoretical research, empirical study, new technology, case study and industrial practice.

SATE 2016 solicits both Chinese and English papers on research and practical issues about software analysis, testing and evolution. Accepted Chinese papers will be recommended to reputable Chinese journals for publishing. Accepted English papers will be published by IEEE CPS (Conference Publishing Services) and some selected papers will be recommended to reputable international journals (SCI indexed).

SATE 2016 will also include some special sessions, including keynote talks, top conference paper presentation, and panel discussion.
