Call for Papers

Metamorphic testing (MT) is a testing technique that exploits the relations (Metamorphic Relations (MRs)) among the inputs and outputs of multiple executions of the program under test. MT has been proven highly effective in testing programs that face the oracle problem, for which the correctness of individual output is difficult to determine. Especially for current popular AI systems, MT has been widely adopted for software quality assurance.

The Fourth International Workshop on Metamorphic Testing (MET 2019) will bring together researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to discuss research results, experiences and insights into MT. The ultimate goal of MET is to provide a platform for the discussion of novel ideas, new perspectives, new applications, and the state of research, related to or inspired by, MT.
