The 61st CREST Open Workshop - Statistics, Learning,  Genetic Improvement and Testing for Programs.

Date: 21st and 22nd October 2019

Venue: Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ

Overview:

Software testing is expanding, growing, and finding new connections and uses like some strange mutant changeling. This workshop aims to reflect and celebrate this. To this end we want to attract software engineering researchers with interest and expertise in some of the following areas: applications of statistics to problems in SE, applications of machine learning to problems in SE, Genetic Improvement of Programs and, last but not least, Software Testing. We are interested in both the intersections and the unions of these areas and hope to find new research synergies beyond those that exist already. Examples of illustrative developments in this union from within CREST  include Software Transplantation, novel approaches to testing machine learning systems, information theoretic models of failed error propagation and oracle improvement in software testing, the use of deep neural nets to create and reconfigure search landscapes in testing, the use of search in adversarial machine learning, and the use of testing in the application of GI to a long list of types of software improvement. To grow and deepen these connections, this workshop will present a list of talks in the union (and sometimes the intersections) of these areas.
