Fifth Round of the SBST Java Unit Testing Tool Contest (with SBST 2017 @ ICSE)

News for upcoming contest series

The junit contest infrastructure has moved to open source with BSD-3 license:


Four successful JUNIT tool competitions have left a mark in the Search-Based Software Testing International Workshops since 2013. We would like to be grateful for the awesome efforts involved around the every year tool competition. Big thanks to the workshops attendees, to the paper authors, to the organising and technical committees and to Tanja E.J. Vos for chairing and making the contests alive every year.

It has been decided that for the competitions there will be a new Chair every year, supported by a Deputy Chair that will become Chair in the following year. So we are making this a reality. We are proud to announce the Fifth Round of the competition chaired by Annibale Panichella, with Urko Rueda as Deputy Chair, that will be held at SBST in conjunction with ICSE 2017: http://sbst2017.lafhis.dc.uba.ar/
