The s-lab - Software Quality Lab of the University of Paderborn organized from the 15-16.10.15 the 38th Meeting of the Section for testing, analysis and verification of software (TAV). In the Street-of-the Future, Fürstenallee, experts from research and practice discuss the subject "Mastering Test Complexity". The Section TAV, part of the Department of Software Engineering society for computer science (GI) is one of Germany's most active communities in the area of testing.
At the meeting this year more than 60 participants from industry and research took part, including many renowned experts in the field of testing, several tool manufacturers and members of important standardization bodies. The technical presentations on the first day covered topics such as the optimization and standardization of the testing process in software development.
The second day began with a keynote speech by Andreas Wübbeke of Wincor Nixdorf, entitled "Organization complexity in introducing agile methods". In the ensuing Fish Bowl session a lively discussion on the question "Does agility introduce a new kind of complexity in software development?" took place. In addition to other professional lectures, three working group meetings were organized at which the participants were able to delve deeper into specific topics, such as test management, model-based testing and testing of embedded systems.
