10th International Workshop on Software Test Architecture (InSTA) is the 10th series of international workshop on software test architecture. Software test architecture includes analyses of system under test, approaches to design test cases, and notation of software testing. Designing better software test architectures is important for software testing. The software test architecture is a key to the test strategy. In software testing, there are various keywords for test design concepts. However, there are no widely standardized diagrams or notations to communicate the test design concepts, to increase the productivity and reusability of tests by raising their levels of abstraction, to generally grasp the overall perspective of the software for testing it. By focusing on the higher concepts of test architectures, our discussions can raise the quality of the testing.
Test architectures must be approached indirectly as a part of the test strategies. Some organizations are working to establish new ways to design novel test architectures, but there is no unified understanding of the key concepts of test architectures. In InSTA workshop, researchers and practitioners will discuss the research works, industrial experiences and emerging ideas about software test architectures. The topics are concepts of test architectures like as abstraction of test cases, design of test architecture as application or enhancement of existing notation UML and UTP, test requirement analysis like as patterns for test requirement analysis, application of test architecture as quality evaluation of test architecture and other software testing related topics.
