The continuous industrial trend to rise software complexity by increasing functionality and accessibility of software and electronic components leads to an ever-growing demand for techniques to ensure software quality. At the same time software companies are shortening development cycles to respond the customers demand for fast and flexible solutions. In order to remain competitive an early and continuous consideration and assurance of system quality becomes an asset of ever-increasing importance in industrial software development. Model-based approaches are not only able to provide effective quality assurance, but also help to evaluate and control the coverage, costs, and risks related to the testing efforts. Both – the effectiveness and the efficiency of testing – can be handled by model-based approaches within integrated system and test development for software-intense systems.

While the software industry starts to adopt model-based testing techniques on a large scale promising research ideas emerge that have the potential to answer many of today’s industrial challenges. The workshop will bring together practitioners and researchers to initiate a dialog that is much needed for both sides.

The ECMDA seeks to foster industrialization of MDA methodology. Model-based testing is dependent on modelled information as provided by MDA and offers many ways to improve efficiency and effectiveness of industrial software testing. Additionally it supports the dialogue between research and industry and therefore perfectly supplements the ECMDA main conference.


The objective of the workshop is to bring together industry and academy by providing a platform for interaction and collaboration. Industrial papers should either describe challenges of system or software testing that could be addressed by model-based testing or present their approach to apply model-based testing in practise. Research papers are expected to present promising ideas or possible solutions in the field of model-based testing that have the potential to be utilized in industrial testing scenarios. Submitted papers should cover at least one of the following topics:

  • Model-based test design and specifications
  • Test languages and methodologies (e.g. TTCN-3, UML testing profile)
  • Guidelines for model-based testing
  • Model-based test approaches for emerging technologies like SOA
  • Executable test models and simulation
  • Derivation of test models from system models
  • Architecture-driven testing
  • Quality and validation of test models
  • Test models for non-functional quality properties (e.g. reliability, safety, performance)
  • Optimization and prioritization of test case suites
  • Risk-based testing with model-based technologies
  • Cost and economic impact of model-based testing
  • Model-based test processes and standard compliance
  • Combination of model-based testing, model-based inspections, and formal model checking
  • Tool automation and tool support
  • Experience reports from case studies in various domains


Papers or position statements should have maximum 10 pages. Both long and short papers will be considered. Submissions should be made electronically, in PDF format, MS Word, LaTeX or Postscript, to the organizers (instruction details are the workshop homepage). Submission should clearly indicate whether the paper is a research paper, an experience report, or a position paper. All papers will be independently reviewed by two members of the Program Committee and ranked according to their appropriateness.
