Message from Conference Chair, Denis Meredith:


Technology for testing and automated solutions has grown remarkably in the
past decade. But the question is still before us -- do we have the support
from technology that we need? Has technology solved the right problems? Is
the technology accessible enough to today's tester? What are the pitfalls
of using such technology? This year, we will be looking at the experiences
with various aspects of testing technology -- some successful, and some

We look forward to having you share your experiences and learn from
others. I look forward to seeing you there.


                     ABOUT THE CONFERENCE


  The Eigh{*filter*}th International Conference on TESTING COMPUTER SOFTWARE
will provide an opportunity to participate in the leading international
conference on software testing. The goal of the 2001 Conference will be to
explore which testing technologies we will need to take into the new
millennium and which ones we will not. Learn how testing professionals and
experts have used advanced methods and testing applications to improve the
effectiveness of their testing, reduce testing costs and meet schedule
deadlines. Share your own experiences in testing with others. You will be
able to exchange knowledge and ideas with people from a wide variety of
environments and locations including those from industry, academia and
government from the United States and abroad.

  Conference tracks will address topics concerning the management of
software testing, the application of a variety of software testing
techniques, testing case studies, and additional topics that will
introduce more advanced ideas.

  This conference will provide essential information to all who are
involved with or have an interest in software testing. This includes not
only practitioners but managers and researchers as well.

  The Eigh{*filter*}th International Conference on Testing Computer Software is
where testing practitioners and managers from the commercial and
applications software community can learn:

* The impact of increasingly complex software on testing
* Ways to improve the testing process
* Practical experience with the various techniques
* Which efforts have been most successful
* Which efforts have been least successful.

  The conference brings together a set of experienced software testers to
share their experiences and what they have learned from them. You will
have the opportunity to hear about effective software testing techniques,
methods and technologies that have benefited the organizations where they
are used.

CONFERENCE VOLUME: A set of conference proceedings, papers and view graphs
will be provided to each participant of the Conference. These materials
are useful not only during the Conference as learning guides, but also as
useful references when the conference is completed.


Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions allow you to meet and network with the
speakers and other conference attendees, and discuss areas of mutual

Lunch Discussion Groups will facilitate the exploration of common interest
topics among the participants.


The Testing Computer Software Conference will be held in suburban
Washington, D.C., USA, a major center for government agencies and
educational institutions. The Conference location will be the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in Bethesda, Maryland, easily accessible from interstate
highways or the Metro subway. There is a convenient subway stop beneath
the hotel with elevator access. Washington, D.C. is served by three major
international airports. The Washington area also offers many extraordinary
