The workshop focuses on bridging the gap between the theory and practice of software test automation. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

1) Methodology: Software test automation in the context of various software development methodologies.

2) Technology: Automation of various test techniques and methods for testing related activities, as well as for testing various types of software applications.

3) Tools and environments: Issues in the development, operation, maintenance and evolution of software testing tools and environments, and their integration and inter-operation with other types of software development and maintenance tools and runtime support environments and platforms.

4) Experiments, empirical studies and experience reports: Experiments, empirical studies of software test automation, as well as reports on real experiences in using automated testing techniques, methods and tools in industry.

5) Identification of problems and visions of the future: The identification of problems that hamper wider adoption of automated test techniques, methods and tools and the analysis and specification of the requirements on automated software testing.

The AST 2013 workshop focuses on a special topic on the Testing Software as a Service. It covers both automatic testing of software systems that are delivered as a service, and also automated testing itself delivered as a service. Submissions on this topic are especially encouraged, but papers on other topics are also welcome.
