                 Special Issue on
    Dynamic Analysis and Testing of Embedded Software

Dynamic analysis and testing techniques of embedded
software use the information collected from executions
to assure or evaluate software artifacts, or to extract,
infer, measure, or verify properties of these artifacts.
At the same time, the stringent resource constraints
imposed by the hardware environment should also be
addressed. Although existing techniques for embedded
software have been investigated for decades, as new
low-power devices emerge (such as motes of wireless
sensor networks, specialized devices for pervasive
computing, or wearable devices), many of them have
serious limitations to be directly applied to assure
software running on these devices. To detect failures
from such software effectively and efficiently, existing
techniques should be re-examined or new techniques
should be developed. This special issue solicits novel
research results in dynamic analysis and testing for
embedded software that come with theoretical and/or
extensive empirical validation of the claimed

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Emerging dynamic analysis and testing techniques
 that can be applied on low-power platforms
* Reports on successful experiences or limitations of
 techniques for analyzing and testing embedded software
* Novel metrics, test adequacy, or correctness criteria
 for embedded software considering the
 low-power constraint
* Efficient framework or automation to support analysis
 and testing of embedded software
* Empirical evaluations or industrial case studies that
 direct future research directions
