Call for Presentations

On Wednesday March 16 & Thursday March 17 2022 the Test Automation Days will be organized at the Jaarbeurs, Utrecht the Netherlands.

Test Automation on the edge

When did you for the last time explore the edges in testing automation? Have you used the data science and AI to improve your testing? Have you applied tools to increase the observability of your system? Have you used test automation technology in a different context or for a different purpose for example applying an RPA tool for TA purposes?

The answers to all these questions are part of the theme of the 11th Test Automation Days: “Test Automation on the edge”, which will be held on March 16 & 17 2022.

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 Papers will close at May 17, 2021. We like to read your proposals and will let you know if you will be a part of the conference before June 12, 2021.

We are preparing for physical conference (with of course a back-up plan for an online alternative) including a postponed party to celebrate our 10th anniversary (which we couldn’t celebrate last year because of the COVID-19-pandemic). Send us your stories about the times that you hit and extended the edges of Test Automation.
