SCOPE AND PURPOSE

The Fif{*filter*}th International Conference on TESTING COMPUTER SOFTWARE will
provide an opportunity to participate in the leading international
conference on software testing. 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 Fif{*filter*}th International Conference on TESTING COMPUTER SOFTWARE is
where testing practitioners and managers from the commercial and
applications software community can learn:

* Experiences with testing under harsh deadlines or technical
  restrictions ... or both
* Ways to improve the testing process
* Practical experience with the various techniques
* Which efforts have been most successful
* Which efforts have been least successful

This 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.
