Call for Papers

Metamorphic testing (MT) is a testing technique that exploits the relationships among the inputs and outputs of multiple executions of the program under test, so-called Metamorphic Relations (MRs). 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. Since the introduction of MT two decades ago, the interest in this testing methodology has grown immensely with numerous applications in various domains such as machine learning, bioinformatics, computer graphics, simulation, search engines, decision support, cloud computing, databases, and compilers. The 6th International Workshop on Metamorphic Testing (MET) will bring together researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to discuss research results and experiences in MT. The ultimate goal of MET is to provide a platform for the discussion of novel ideas, new perspectives, new applications, and state of research, related to or inspired by MT.
