Testing is one of the most important techniques for validating the correctness of communicating and software systems. Triggered by the quest for improved quality of systems, and by the high and ever-increasing costs of making and executing the necessary tests, testing has evolved during the last two decades fromanad-hoc andunder-exposedareaof systems developmentto animportant and active area, where a lot of research and development, in academia as well as in industry, is taking place. This evolvement is also re?ected in an increasing number of testing conferences and workshops being regularly organized. Two of these, TestCom the19thIFIP TC6/WG6. 1InternationalConferenceonTesting of Communicating Systems and Fates the seventh International Workshop on Formal Approaches to Testing of Software, were jointly held in Tallinn, Estonia, June27 29, 2007. Inaddition, Forte, the27thIFIPInternationalConferenceon FormalMethodsforNetworkedandDistributedSystems, wasalsoheldinTallinn during these dates, together thus forming a large event on testing, validation, and speci?cation of software, communicating, and distributed systems. The objective ofTestCom/Fates 2007 was to o?er a forum for researchers from academia as well as industry, developers, and testers to present, discuss, and learn about new approaches, theories, methods, and tools in the ?eld of testing of software and communicating systems. TestCom - Testing of Communicating Systems is an IFIP-sponsored series of international conferences, previously also called the International Workshop on Protocol Test Systems (IWPTS) or International Workshop on Testing of Communicating Systems (IWTCS). It is devoted to testing of communicating systems, includingtestingofcommunicationprotocols, services, distributedpl- forms, and middleware.International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis, pp. 203a214 ...
