Call for Papers
IEEE Second International Workshop on Web Services Testing (WS-Testing 2008)
July 8, 2008, Hawaii, USA

Co-located with IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2008)

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Services Computing (

Web services testing has become a critical factor that will decide the success of the Web services paradigm. Due to the unique properties of Web services, the existing software testing models and methodologies deserve re-inspection in the domain of Web services. The 2008 IEEE Second International Workshop on Web Services Testing (WS-Testing 2008) aims to provide an international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Web services testing.

IEEE WS-Testing 2008 is co-located with the 2008 IEEE Service Congress showing our view that it is a natural evolution of Web Services/SOA in a broadened sense.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

* Web Services Assessment (i.e., Validation & Verification)
* Web Services-Based Techniques Supporting Various Testing Methods (e.g., Structural Testing, Functional Testing, Fault-Based Testing, Random Testing, etc.)
* Web Services-Based -Ilities Testing (e.g., Reliability, Security, Safety, Availability, Testablity, Maintainability, Fault Tolerance, etc.)
* Web Services-Based Automated Test Case Generation
* Web Services-Based Testing Tools and Environments
* Web Services-Based Testing Methodologies
* Mobile Agents-Based Web Services Testing
* Experiments, Empirical Studies and Experience Reports and Vision of the Future
* Domain-Specific Web Services Testing and Solutions


Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines ( You can download the paper template in word format.

Authors should submit a Word or PDF files using (the online submission and review system). The accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the SERVICES 2008 by the IEEE Computer Socity Press and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.


The best papers from the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in the (International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR)), which has been included in Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E) since the first issue of 2006.
