Abstract
Empirical research on software testing that aims to be
relevant to industry faces important challenges. In this po­

research and discuss some of the most important challenges.
We then give suggestions on how to respond to these chal­
lenges.

wisdom about the goals of the software quality assurance
enterprise in general. Figure 1, adapted from [MC96], sum­
marizes this wisdom. Given an organization that is devel­
oping, maintaining or evolving software, there are costs to
the organization to do with releasing poor­quality software.
These costs decrease as the ``level of quality'' we achieve
