We are at an exciting time in the history of the development of software Testing and Verification (TAV). Research is increasingly impacting the tech sector, with many recent examples of breakthroughs, deployment, and adoption. Facebook is playing its own role in the deployment and further development of TAV research with initiatives such as Infer, Sapienz, and Zoncolan, which are well known. But the tech sector as a whole is also actively working on deployment and development of TAV research.
Continuing the success of last year’s software Testing and Verification research awards, Facebook has launched another research award opportunity to encourage further innovation in software Testing and Verification and to deepen our collaboration with academia. The request for proposals was announced at a luncheon at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE).
We are interested in proposals that tackle any topics on Testing and Verification that have the potential to have profound impact on the tech sector, based on advances on the theory and practice of testing and verification, and in particular, we welcome proposals that tackle the following:
We anticipate granting 10 awards, each in the $50,000 range.
Visit the software testing and verification research awards page to apply and for information about eligibility, timing, dates, and what a proposal should include. The application deadline is July 26, 2019.
