Introduction

The 20th IFIP Int. Conference on Testing of Communicating Systems(TESTCOM) and the 8th Int. Workshop on Formal Approaches to Testing of Software(FATES) will take place as TESTCOM/FATES CONFERENCE in Tokyo in the buildings of the Campus Innovation Center located in the center of Tokyo. TESTCOM/FATES'08 aims at being a forum for researchers, developers, testers, vendors, and users to review, discuss, and learn about new approaches, concepts, theories, methodologies, tools, and experiences in the field of testing of communicating systems and general software. Topics of interest include aspects of testing, model-based testing, and tools to support any of the testing activities. Contributions on case studies and industrial applications of testing methodologies are also encouraged. The conference will consist of tutorial sessions on the first day, followed by presentations of reviewed papers and tool demonstrations. Lecture Notes in Computer ScienceSpecial attention is taken to foster the mingling between academia and industry. Therefore a track on presentations of industrial best practices in testing will be organized in addition.
The proceedings will be published by Springer in theLecture Notes in Computer Science series.

TESTCOM/FATES 08 is co-located with FORTE 08.
