Nature-inspired algorithms in Software Engineering and Testing

We seek both theoretical developments and applications of Computational Intelligence to the design, the development, operation, and maintenance of software, with particular focus on testing for security and reliability. All bio-inspired computational paradigms are welcome, mainly Genetic and Evolutionary Computation, including Multi-Objective Approaches, but also Fuzzy Logic, Intelligent Agent Systems, Neural Networks, Cellular Automata, Artificial Immune Systems, Swarm Intelligence and others, including hybrids.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Requirements engineering
  • Automated design and development of software
  • Search-based software engineering
  • Software reliability, testing and security
  • Software maintenance and self-repair
  • Software effort estimation and fault prediction
  • Genetic improvement of software
  • Real world applications of the above


  • Anna I Esparcia-Alcázar
  • Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain
