Call for Cases

Unfortunately the module is closed and it is not longer possible to submit an abstract. 

On Wednesday May 29 & Thursday May 30 2024 the Test Automation Days will be organized at the de Doelen ICC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Reframing Test Automation

The domain of test automation is part of a constantly evolving landscape and is something we are all aware of. As we gear up for Test Automation Days 2024, we’re intrigued by how to navigate in this dynamic environment. Now, more than ever we should ask ourselves a series of questions: How is AI shaping our approach? How can we effectively manage the multitude of available tools? And what about the escalating complexity of IT systems due to the pervasive influence of digitalization in our daily activities? 

We invite you to share your tales of triumphs and failures, along with intriguing case studies of how you applied Test Automation in all kinds of (different) ways. Besides presentations, we are also looking for interesting workshops that equip attendees from all over the world that yearly visits the Test Automation Days in the Netherlands with the skills and knowledge to confront these Test Automation challenges head-on.

The Call for Cases will close at January 19, 2024. We like to read your proposals and will let you know if you will be a part of the conference before February 16, 2024.

Call for Cases
If you are interested in giving a presentation, fill out the form to send your submission to the Program Committee. We are looking for half-day masterclasses (3-hours) on day one and 40-minute presentations or workshops during the second day.

Submission deadline: Friday January 19, 2024

The Review Committee will, in cooperation with the Program Committee, review the cases on content and the link with the conference theme. Please mark your calendar for attending the conference on May 29 & 30. We expect submitters to be available during the whole conference. Submitters will receive a notification of acceptance no later than February 16.

Note: After your online submission, you will receive an automatic confirmation by email. If you don’t receive an email within 24 hours, please contact Joyca van Essen via +31 (0)40-214 62 02 or send an email to joyca@ckc-seminars.nl

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, Ard.Kramer@orangecrest.nl) 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. 

Reimbursement
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.
