Demonstrations provide researchers and practitioners with an exciting and interactive opportunity to present their systems, artifacts and/or research prototypes, either at a regular session or at the technical exhibition. In any case, it is required to avoid a commercial format, even if the demo consists of presenting a business product or service. Instead, the presentation should focus on technical aspects.
Any written support materials may be distributed locally but not published in the proceedings. Authors who already present a paper at the conference may apply for a demonstration, to complement but not to replace their paper presentation. Demonstrations can also be made by sponsor companies or as a mixed initiative involving researchers and industrial partners.
Demonstrations are based on an informal setting that encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. This is an opportunity for the participants to disseminate practical results of their research and to network with other applied researchers or business partners.

Concerning the format of the demo, we can accommodate it either as a demonstration in a booth (physical area of 4 sq. meter, with a table and 2 chairs) at the exhibition area, as a poster or as a 20 min oral presentation at a session especially set up for demonstrations. It is also possible to organize the presentation of the same demo in more than one format. Please contact the event secretariat.


KnowX: Knowledge Acquisition from Functional Tests


Chetan Khadke
Independent Researcher
Brief Bio
Chetan Khadke is currently working in TCS Innovation Lab, Pune. He has worked on Challenging research problem “Test Suite Parallelism” in his Internship in TCS. Chetan Khadke has worked on Mining model from functional test cases. His team have also developed the "KnowX" tool.
When enterprises outsource maintenance of IT systems to service providers, a thorough transfer of knowledge is critical to the success of the engagement. Availability and currency of documents is often questionable, making knowledge acquisition a challenge. It is a common practice to execute test scripts to observe behavior and build models of the IT system. This is time and effort intensive as test scripts in the industry are largely manual and need to be executed manually.
KnowX - a tool to recover workflows directly from test procedures listed in test scripts to automatically construct a formal workflow model. The tool mines a precise as well as generalized model so as to enable the user to understand the exact behavior as well as additional behavior likely to have been missing from the test scripts. The tool also handles duplicate test steps.
