The 30th Edition of ISSTA and the 35th Edition of ECOOP
Call for Participation
11th-17th July 2021
Co-located with REBASE 2021 and SPIN 2021
The ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis (ISSTA)
is the leading research symposium on software testing and analysis, bringing
together academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners to exchange new
ideas, problems, and experience on how to analyze and test software systems.
ECOOP is Europe’s longest-standing annual Programming Languages conference,
bringing together researchers, practitioners, and students to share their ideas and
experiences in all topics related to programming languages, software development,
object-oriented technologies, systems and applications. ECOOP welcomes high
quality research papers relating to these fields in a broad sense.
Registration to ECOOP 2021 and ISSTA 2021 is still open - and free of charge!
If you haven't registered yet, there are still a few days left to do so. The registration is
free for all attendees. You need to register in order to access the Zoom rooms and videos.
