Workshop Descriptions

Nowadays, many software systems are offered in the cloud to millions of users. Field problems of these systems are often due to their inability to scale to field workloads, rather than feature bugs. To assure the quality of these systems, load testing is a required procedure in addition to the conventional functional testing. Problems in a load test could be caused by the system under test, the load generator or the test environment. This one-day workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the challenges and opportunities of conducting load testing research on large scale software systems. The theme of this year's workshop is Load Testing Large Scale Cloud Services.
