CAST 2014 has ended


The Association for Software Testing is pleased to announce its ninth annual conference, CAST 2014 “The Art and Science of Testing”, to be held in New York, NY, August 11-13. To some, software testing is an outgrowth of engineering, mathematics and physics, while to others, testing is an exploration of psychology, philosophy or sociology. At CAST 2014, conference speakers will share their stories and experiences surrounding software testing, whether bound by rules and laws of science and experimentation, or expressed through creativity, imagination, and artistry.

Join us this summer for our ninth annual conference in downtown New York City at the beautiful Kimmel Center located next to Washington Square Park August 11-13, as we explore the art and science of testing.

The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), one of the world's preeminent schools of art and design, is also the leader of the STEAM educational movement. STEAM is an acronym created by adding an A for Art into STEM, the term representing the US government's current emphasis on education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathmatics. STEAM has become the basis of two resolutions by the House of Representatives, asserting the importance of art and design to innovation and economic growth.

Join Dr. Strohecker in learning how STEAM relates not only to curricular content, but to a set of methods and a way of thinking. Hear how creative work relies on personal curiosity and often involves exploration of materials and failure as not only inevitable, but welcomed for the potential to inspire new directions. STEAM work involves not only testing hypotheses, but ongoing questioning of assumptions. It includes not only analysis, but synthesis: not only solving problems, but creating solutions.
