Requirements and Validation, Verification & Testing
Verification and validation are important means to measure and guarantee the quality of systems.
There are many existing and upcoming standards (IEC 61508, ISO 26262, DO-178B) that demand high
quality of safety-related systems and the proof of it. Alone but also in combination with
model-based approaches, this research area attracts a lot of interest in academia and in the industry.
All development projects are based on capturing requirements.
The quality of the following activities in the development process,
like design, verification, implementation, and testing, highly depends
on the quality of the requirements (as defined in IEEE 830). Capturing good
requirements and integrating them into the development process is an important issue.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss and identify the intersections and mutual leverages
of both topics. We want to discuss questions like "How can we achieve complete, clear and
testable requirements?", "How to verify requirements?", "How can we use requirements for
validation and verification of systems?", "How to trace between requirements and other
development artifacts?", etc.
We invite both industry and academics to provide novel approaches and experience reports and to discuss.
