Abstract

The level of industry-academia collaboration (IAC) in software engineering in general and in software testing in particular is quite low. Many researchers and practitioners are not collaborating with the "other side" to solve industrial problems. To shed light on the above issue and to characterize precisely what industry wants from academia in software testing, we solicited practitioners' opinions on their challenges in diferent testing activities and also the particularly relevant topics that they want the research community to work on. This short paper aims to draw the community's attention to the important issue of strengthening IAC with the hope of more IAC in software testing in the areas of most importance to the industry.
