The first Joining AcadeMiA and Industry Contributions to testing Automation Workshop, JAMAICA 2013
July 15th 2013 – Lugano, Switzerland. Co-located with ISSTA 2013 
Paper Submission Deadline: April 15, 2013
Notification of Acceptance: May 10, 2013
Camera-Ready Manuscript: May 28, 2013
In industrial software systems, testing activities account for more than 50% of total development effort. People strive to find solutions able to reduce cost without compromising the final quality. A key role in this scenario is played by testing automation. Although its importance is well-recognized, there is still poor interaction between academia and industry. On one hand, theoretically sound solutions remain unapplied in real industrial settings; on the other hand, practitioners from industry do not invest on new methodologies and tools if they do not see an immediate gain.
In such a vicious cycle, the JAMAICA workshop intends to foster the discussion on the current practices for automating testing activities in industry, so as to bring the attention of the community on the impact that such practices may have on the overall cost/quality trade-off and on the development cycle.
Methodological, technical, and practical solutions, as well as concrete experiences and case-study in modern software systems will be presented and discussed, regarding all the types of test automation activities, including code-driven testing, model-based and model-driven testing, regression testing automation, oriented toward the minimization of manual error-prone activities in test cases generation and execution.
Original papers, up to 6 pages, are solicited for the workshop. All contributions will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. 
The topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:
  • Software test automation in the context of:
  • model-driven engineering
  • component-based development
  • agile, service-oriented & agent-oriented methodologies
  • Testing Tools and Open source platforms enabling test automation
  • Methodologies and techniques for Automatic generation and execution of test cases
  • Contribution to Testing related standards for automation
  • Cloud computing platforms for enabling test execution in distributed environments
  • Practical experiences and issues in the development, operation and maintenance of industrial testing environments
Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the EasyChair conference system:
Submitted papers should be in PDF format and should comply the ACM policies that can be found at: 
All submissions must be in English. Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines or that violate formatting will be declined without review.
Conference Proceedings
The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM and will be distributed together with the ISSTA 2013 conference proceedings in a USB pen drive. No printed copy of the proceedings will be available at the conference.
