RefTest March 2011. Berlin, Germany

RefTest (REFactoring & TESTing) Berlin Workshop

Running in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST), 25th March 2011, Berlin, Germany

Refactoring and its testing implications/crossover have emerged over recent years to become important inter-related research topics with high industrial resonance. Many issues and problems still remain unexplored in these two highly-related fields incorporating topics such as the theoretical underpinnings of refactoring, TDD, empirical studies, refactoring of test artefacts, code smell analysis and patterns (both design and micro) to name just a few. Refactoring also has a growing importance in the monitoring of systemís evolution and the propensity of systems to minimise maintenance effort and fault propensity; the over-riding question, still largely unanswered, is whether we can quantify the benefits of refactoring. The purpose and goal of the REFTEST Workshop is to bring together industrial practitioners and academics in a setting where current issues in refactoring and test crossover can be presented, relationships with testing discussed, results from current research in refactoring/testing disseminated and future directions distilled.

Topics of interest for the RefTest Berlin workshop are as follows:
