Call for Cases

On Wednesday May 24 & Thursday May 25 2023 the Test Automation Days will be organized at the Convention Centre WTC Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Challenge Accepted! Across the spectrum of TA

What challenges did you face when applying test automation (TA) ? How did you deal with the challenges, for example using Machine Learning, Data Science or Artificial Intelligence to improve your Test Automation? How did tools assist you in facing those challenges, or were they a challenge on their own? Have you used TA in a different context or for a different purpose to solve your challenges? 

The answers to all these questions are part of the theme of the 12th Test Automation Days: “Challenge Accepted! Across the spectrum of TA”.

 We are interested in your stories where you tell the attendees of this interesting conference about your experiences, your successes, and your failures. Every story where you hit the boundaries of your knowledge, technology, and human interaction can be interesting for test automation colleagues from all over the world that yearly visits the Test Automation Days in the Netherlands. Share your thoughts by sending us your proposal. The Call for Cases will close at January 20, 2023. We like to read your proposals and will let you know if you will be a part of the conference before February 20, 2023.

Write your proposal and take into account the following criteria:

  • Define the question(s) you want to address during your talk but also give us information about the answers to your questions
  • Use examples in your proposal so we can see how you will apply your experiences in your talk
  • We will be looking if your proposal is presentable within the given time: don’t try to tell too much!
  • Tell us what will make your talk special, what’s the ‘wow’-factor?
  • We have a code of conduct you will agree upon when speaking at TAD

If you have an idea for a proposal but you like to have some feedback on the concept, you can send your idea to the program chair (Ard Kramer, and he will give you feedback (but no guarantees because the review committee will review your proposal).

We also like to have new speakers on stage. For that reason, we have a least one track open for newbies and of course, first-time speakers will be supported by the Program Committee by a so called ‘buddy system’. This means that if your proposal is selected, a buddy will contact you to help you deliver a great talk. This buddy is familiar with the conference and knows how to present a great talk. 

For speakers from abroad we offer a reimbursement for travel and hotel costs. Speakers from Europe (outside The Netherlands or Belgium) will get a maximum travel reimbursement of € 250 and speakers from outside Europe will get a maximum travel reimbursement of € 500. For both we will arrange a room for one night in a hotel close the conference venue. Please indicate if you would need reimbursement during your submission, since we have a limited budget. If you can travel by car, we will provide free parking at het conference venue.
