Message from Conference Chair, Genevieve Houston-Ludlam:

                    FUTURE TRENDS IN TESTING

Testing as a profession has progressed greatly in the past decade. The
widespread use of Object Oriented methodologies, third party components,
mobile computing, large and complex distributed systems of systems and the
Internet have permanently altered the testing landscape.

As the industry changes the way it does business, we will need to adjust
our approaches as well. Come see what is happening, both in the lab and in
the industry. Hope to see you at our forthcoming Conference.


                     ABOUT THE CONFERENCE


The Six{*filter*}th International Conference on TESTING COMPUTER SOFTWARE will
provide an opportunity to participate in the leading international
conference on software testing. The goal of the 1999 Conference will be to
explore which testing technologies we will need to take into the new
millennium and which ones we will not. Further, we will explore the
testing problems that accompany component-based design and what research
is needed to address these deficiencies. Learn how testing professionals
and experts have used advanced methods and testing applications to improve
the effectiveness of their testing, reduce testing costs and meet schedule
deadlines. Share your own experiences in testing with others. You will be
able to exchange knowledge and ideas with people from a wide variety of
environments and locations including those from industry, academia and
government from the United States and abroad.

Conference tracks will address topics concerning the management of
software testing, the application of a variety of software testing
techniques, testing case studies, and additional topics that will
introduce more advanced ideas.

This conference will provide essential information to all who are involved
with or have an interest in software testing. This includes not only
practitioners but managers and researchers as well.

The Six{*filter*}th International Conference on Testing Computer Software is
where testing practitioners and managers from the commercial and
applications software community can learn:

* The impact of increasingly complex software on testing
* Ways to improve the testing process
* Practical experience with the various techniques
* Which efforts have been most successful
* Which efforts have been least successful.

The conference brings together a set of experienced software testers to
share their experiences and what they have learned from them. You will
have the opportunity to hear about effective software testing techniques,
methods and technologies that have benefited the organizations where they
are used.

A set of conference proceedings, papers and view graphs will be provided
to each participant of the Conference. These materials are useful not only
during the Conference as learning guides, but also as useful references
when the conference is completed.

The Testing Computer Software Conference will be held in suburban
Washington, D.C., USA, a major center for government agencies and
educational institutions. The Conference location will be the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in Bethesda, Maryland, easily accessible from interstate
highways or the Metro subway. There is a convenient subway stop beneath
the hotel with elevator access. Washington, D.C. is served by three major
international airports. The Washington area also offers many extraordinary
museums, memorials, parks and other attractions for visitors.
