IEEE International Workshop on Fault Localization and Repair for AI Systems (FLRAS 2024)


The current artificial intelligence (AI) systems have been widely used in various fields, especially in safety-critical applications (such as drones and automatic driving vehicles). Safety-critical faults they bring have attracted widespread attention from society. Therefore, from the perspective of software testing, how to comprehensively detect the wrong behaviors of AI systems to ensure the safety of AI technology in key areas is a hot issue, which is currently concerned by the academic community.

The International Workshop on Fault Localization and Repair of AI Systems (FLRAS) intends to provide a forum to bring together researchers, practitioners, and experts in AI software testing, intelligent system fault localization, and repair. This workshop serves as a platform for researchers and practitioners to discuss and exchange ideas of the state-of-the-art developments in the theory and technology of fault localization and repair of AI systems.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

  • Application of software testing to AI system
  • Coverage of neural network
  • Fault localization methods for AI system
  • Fault repair methods for AI system
  • Optimization of test cases
  • Verification and validation of AI system
  • The methods in testing AI system
  • Security of AI system
  • Robustness of AI system
  • AI system testing software


Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, and review process can be found at QRS submission.

Each submission can have a maximum of ten pages. It should include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, a 300-word abstract, and up to 6 keywords. Shorter version papers (up to six pages) are also allowed.

All papers must conform to the QRS conference proceedings format (PDF | Word DOCX | Latex) and Submission Guideline set in advance by QRS 2024. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay the full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop. Submissions must be in PDF format and uploaded to the conference submission site. Arrangements are being made to publish extended version of top-quality papers in selected SCI journals.
