  • INES at DigiCosme Spring School

    Publicado em March 17th, 2013Uncategorized

    PhD students Simone Oliveira Santos and Ernesto Cid Brasil de Matos (UFRN) will participate in the first DigiCosme Spring School. The event will take place from April 22th to 26th at the Supélec campus in Gif, which is located on the Plateau de Saclay, near Paris, France. The school’s theme this year is Program Analysis and Verification. The school will discuss several aspects of this theme, including abstract interpretation, analysis of numerical precision, model-based testing, deductive program verification, verification of protocols and construction of certified program analysers.

    Simone Santos will also visit the LIFO laboratory at University of Orleans (Orleans, France), where she is planning to spent her sandwich PhD year.

  • INES at 17th EASE – Part II

    Publicado em March 13th, 2013Publications

    The paper “Cloud Testing Framework” authored by Crescencio Rodrigues Lima Neto (DCC-UFBA and IFBA), and Vinicius Cardoso Garcia (CIn-UFPE), has been accepted for publication at the 17th International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering (EASE’2013). The conference will be held in April 14 – 16, 2013 at Porto de Galinhas, Brazil.

    This activity is part of the project “Social Machines and Research Team – SMaRT” and is one of the results of the research being done by ASSERT Lab.

    A brief overview of the paper is given next

    Cloud-based testing introduces a new set of challenges. While many companies are approaching cloud computing with cautious, testing appears to be next area of growing interest. This paper propose the development of a new framework focusing on cloud testing. We intend to define the activities, roles, techniques, and tools that will be used in an integrated framework. A research methodology containing all the steps that will be executed during the proposal implementation was defined. A schedule was suggested in order to allow the research development. We propose a new Cloud Testing framework and we present the research methodology and schedule that will be used to implement the proposal.
