The conference had the following tracks:  Testing techniques and mechanisms  Software verification and validation  System and feature testing We take here the opportunity to warmly thank all the members of the VALID 2014 technical program committee, as well as the numerous reviewers. The creation of such a high quality conference program would not have been possible without their involvement. We also kindly thank all the authors that dedicated much of their time and effort to contribute to VALID 2014. We truly believe that, thanks to all these efforts, the final conference program consisted of top quality contributions. Also, this event could not have been a reality without the support of many individuals, organizations and sponsors. We also gratefully thank the members of the VALID 2014 organizing committee for their help in handling the logistics and for their work that made this professional meeting a success. We hope VALID 2014 was a successful international forum for the exchange of ideas and results between academia and industry and to promote further progress in the area of system testing and validation. We also hope that Nice, France provided a pleasant environment during the conference and everyone saved some time to enjoy the charm of the city. VALID 2014 Chairs VALID Advisory Chairs
