For three decades, the EuroSTAR Conference has been the leading software testing conference in Europe, attracting delegates and speakers from around the globe. Last year, we hosted the very first edition of AutomationSTAR, a conference focused on automation in testing. This year we’re going to Berlin, and we’re looking for test automation specialists to speak on stage and share their ideas with an incredible community.
Check out the submission details below, and apply to speak on stage in Berlin.
Chris Loder, 2023 Programme Chair
I’m Chris Loder, the Programme Chair for AutomationSTAR 2023. An honour that I immediately accepted when asked. The chance to be a part of this amazing conference, and to have the ability to shape and cultivate it was too great an opportunity to pass up.
I’ll be working with my Programme Committee members, John Kent (UK) and Sophie Küster (Germany), to put together the absolute best conference on Test Automation. For that to happen, we need you!!
About the Event
A conference just about Test Automation. That’s it. Not an add on or part of some other larger conference. It is a conference just for us. The people who do the test automation for our respective companies and products. To be surrounded by my peers, all of whom share the same struggles, concerns and successes that I have, is such a great experience. I felt at home when I was at AutomationSTAR 2022. If you were there, then you know exactly what I am talking about. For those of you who couldn’t make it last year, fret not because we are bringing it back in 2023!
We are opening the call for speakers on 18th January and hope as many as possible of you will submit. The more submissions we have, the better the programme we can create for attendees. We are looking for talks for all types of sessions.
We want submissions for:
Half-Day Tutorials – 3.5-hour expert masterclasses. Popular tutorials can be large (possibly up to 100 people). Exercises need to be easy to explain, understand and perform to be practical.
Track Talks – 45-minute sessions with 30 minutes of presentation/talk followed by 15 minutes of Q&A and audience discussion.
Here are a few key dates to keep in mind:
- Submission opens 18th January 2023
- Submissions deadline 24th February 2023
- Notice of acceptance mid/late April 2023
- Conference 20th & 21st November 2023
You can start your submission here.
Thanks in advance to all of you that submit, we are hoping to see a very large number of amazing submissions from the test automation community. Remember, this is your chance to share with people who are just like you and eager to share and learn.
Best of luck and I hope to see you all, as speakers, or delegates, in Berlin in November. It’s going to be an amazing conference!
