Computer seeks submissions for a February 2014 special issue on the software testing.

Software defects are a challenge to our society, costing an estimated $59 billion to the US economy alone. Technology changes rapidly, increasing the need for both proven and novel software testing techniques.

The guest editors of this special issue seek papers that describe established or emerging approaches for software testing, providing guidance to a broad audience of computer science and engineering practitioners and researchers.

Appropriate topics of interest for this special issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • emerging research techniques for new software technologies,
  • software testing techniques used in an organization, providing insights into what works well and future opportunities,
  • software testing education, and
  • bridging software and security testing techniques.

The content of submitted papers should be practical and original, avoiding a focus on theory, mathematics, jargon, and abstract concepts. Accepted papers will be professionally edited for content and style. All manuscripts are subject to peer review on both technical merit and relevance to Computer's readership.

For additional information, contact the guest editors: Renee Bryce and Rick Kuhn.

Paper submissions are due 15 July 2013. For author guidelines and information on how to submit a manuscript electronically, visit
