Paper Submission

IEEE AITest 2023 solicits research papers describing novel and previously unpublished scientific contributions to the field of AT testing. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.

Two different types of papers can be submitted:

  • Regular papers (8 pages IEEE double column format) and short papers (2 pages IEEE double column format)
  • AI Testing In Practice (8 pages IEEE double column format)
  • Tool Demo Track (4 pages IEEE double column format)

We welcome submissions of both regular research papers (limited to 8 pages), that describe original and significant work or report on case studies and empirical research, and short papers (limited to 2 pages) that describe late-breaking research results or work in progress with timely and innovative ideas. Short papers aim at presenting novel work in progress, novel applications, and novel industry perspectives in the field of AI testing. Each short paper is limited to 2 pages, including tables, figures and references. Short papers will also be peer-reviewed, however, they will be evaluated with a focus on the potential for establishing new ideas and for sparking the interest of participants. Ph.D. students are also invited to submit ongoing work lacking complete results as short papers.

The AI Testing in Practice Track provides a forum for networking, exchanging ideas and innovative or experimental practices to address SE research that impacts directly on practice on software testing for AI.

The tool track provides a forum to present and demonstrate innovative tools and/or new benchmarking datasets in the context of software testing for AI.

All papers must be written in English. Manuscripts must include a title, an abstract, and a list of 4-6 keywords. All papers must be prepared in the IEEE double column proceedings format. Please see:

IEEE AITest 2023 uses a double-blind review policy. Authors are required to remove their names, affiliation(s) and other identifying information from the header of the manuscript. This also includes meta-data in the submitted document as well as acknowledgement sections. Authors are required to cite their previous work in a neutral manner, for example, avoid “in our previous work [3]” and instead use “as shown in [3]”. Papers that do not meet these anonymization requirements may be desk-rejected without further review.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The name(s) of the author(s) will not be visible to the reviewers of a paper. The name(s) of the author(s) will be visible in the submission system to the General Chairs and the Program Committee Chairs. Authors should report any conflict of interest with the list of Program Committee members during submission of the manuscript, in which case the Program Committee Chairs will exclude the corresponding PC member(s) from reviewing the paper. At least one of the authors of any accepted paper would have to register for the conference and confirm that she/he will present the paper in person.

Authors must submit their manuscripts via the following link by February 19th, 2023, 23:59 AoE at the latest:

Submit paper


Authors who have submitted articles for publication by the IEEE may be interested in posting preprint versions of the same article. In order to find out more about the allowed forms of preprints and to understand what counts as a prior publication, please see IEEE’s Sharing and Posting Policies as well as Section 8.1.9 on “Electronic Information Dissemination” in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual.

Paper publication

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI-Index) and included in the IEEE Digital Library. For publication, each accepted paper is required to be registered by one of its authors, and at least one author is required to attend and present the paper at the conference for the paper to be included in the final technical program and the IEEE Digital Library.

Special issues

The authors of the best papers will be invited to also submit their work (with at least 30% novel contents) to the following special issues:
