COMET - Community Event-based Testing

Event-driven software (EDS) spans multiple domains, from industrial embedded devices and robotic controllers to web interfaces and GUI applications. This website will serve as a community infrastructure for event-based testing researchers to provide uniformity in experimentation and benchmarking in event-driven software testing. We will provide concrete artifacts for testing that includes subjects, test suites, fault matrices and tools, as well as processes and models to standardize the way experiments are conducted in this environment.

This project is a joint effort between the E2 laboratory at UNL and the GUITAR group at UMD.
