The 6th Halmstad Summer School on Testing

Halmstad University, Sweden | June 13 - June 16, 2016 |


Software testing accounts for a major part of software development cost and effort,
yet the current practice of software testing is often insufficiently structured and disciplined.
There have been various attempts in the past decades to bring more rigour and structure into this field,
resulting in several industrial-strength processes, techniques and tools for different levels of testing.
The 6th Halmstad Summer School on Testing provides an overview of the state of the art in testing,
including theory, industrial cases, tools and hands-on tutorials by internationally-renowned researchers.


  • Automatic Software Verification with the Infer Static Analyzer (Dino Distefano, Queen Mary, University of London and Facebook, UK)
  • Testing and Verification Methods for Many-Core Concurrency (Alastair F. Donaldson, Imperial College, UK)
  • Is Mutation Analysis Ready for Prime Time? (Jeff Offutt, George Mason University, USA)
  • Fault Model-Based Testing from State-Oriented Models (Alexandre Petrenko, Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM), Canada)
  • The Role of Testing and Tools for Innovation (Per Runeson, Lund University, Sweden)
  • Fault Tree Analysis (Marielle Stoelinga, University of Twente, The Netherlands)

Ph.D. Symposium

We have 6 time slots for Ph.D. presentations, where each student gets to present her/his research project (and possibly results) and receive feedback from our experts. We solicit abstracts of 2 pages in the EasyChair Style in order to make a selection (see: ). The abstract should contain a clear overview of the problem description, approach, (existing results, if any,) and future milestone.

Abstract submissions can be made already via .

The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2016.


The registration deadline is April 15, 2016.

To apply to the summer school, please fill in the form at: .
If you have any dietary requirements, or
would like to attend only certain days of the summer school, please indicate in the form .

The registration fee is 3000 SEK (approx. 325 EUR) and covers lunches, coffee breaks, and the study material, but
it does not include the social event and the social dinner.

A ticket to the social event and the social dinner costs 500 SEK and can be requested upon registration.


The summer school will be held on the campus of Halmstad University in Halmstad, Sweden.
Halmstad is a popular summer destination located on the Swedish west coast.
Just a few minutes by bicycle or bus takes you from campus to city centre, sandy beaches or forested Galgberget Hill.
Trains take you directly to Goteborg in 75 minutes, to the Malmo-Copenhagen area in about 2 hours and to Stockholm in 4.5 hours.
There are also daily flights from Halmstad Airport to Stockholm.

If you are flying in internationally it is generally easiest to fly into Copenhagen (CPH) airport (also known as Kastrup).
The best thing about flying into CPH is that you just buy a train ticket when you arrive at the airport and simply take a train from the airport directly toHalmstad.
