Third International Workshop on
Testing Database Systems

Co-located with ACM SIGMOD 2010

DBTest 2010 Keynote

Title: Somebody Put a Database in My Software Testing Problem

Abstract: This talk will examine how interactions with a database affect approaches to several classical software testing problems -- test generation, test data adequacy assessment, the oracle problem, program analysis, and evaluation of effectiveness of fault detection techniques. We will summarize several approaches to these database application testing problems and discuss research challenges.

Speaker: Phyllis Frankl (Professor, Dept. of Computer and Information Science at Polytechnic Institute of NYU)
Phyllis Frankl is a Professor of Computer Science at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University. She holds a PhD in Computer Science from the Courant Institute of NYU. Her research has addressed many aspects of software testing, including development tools and techniques for generating test data and assessing test data adequacy, as well as evaluation of effectiveness of testing techniques. In recent years, this work has focused on analyzing and testing database application programs. Professor Frankl's research has been funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, NYSTAR, and industry. She is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering and has served on program committees of many software engineering conferences.
