It is common knowledge that producing fault-free software is virtually impossible. Therefore, verification and validation practices will always be of paramount importance to software development. Among these practices, software testing is one of the most popular and effective, helping make software more predictable and consistent.
SAST focuses on bringing together software testing researchers and practitioners to discuss and present experiences and contributions to the field. The 7th edition of SAST will be co-located with the Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice (CBSoft) and will benefit from other important joint events, such as the Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES), the Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages (SBPL), the Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods (SBFM), and the Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and Reuse (SBCARS).
During this period, Brasilia will be the place for those interested in Systematic and Automated Software Testing!
