Many advances have been made in
test automation originating from many different backgrounds, e.g. a
standardized test specification and implementation language from the
telecommunication area, test driven development from the agile
development school, crowd testing from the cloud community, and
model-based testing from the formal testing approaches. Test automation
now also targets non-functional aspects of systems with cyber security
as a major goal. Nevertheless, many companies still perform manual
testing possibly coupled with throwaway capture/replay test automation
and struggle with integration and deployment of different test
automation technologies in various industrial settings. Practitioners
are clearly looking for examples of what can be done, how it can be
achieved, what needs to change, and how others struggled through it.
A multitude of academic conferences and workshops on automated testing already exist. Nevertheless, many industrial experts and test practitioners miss an event dedicated to addressing engineering and application aspects of test methodologies, and advanced test automation. The ETSI User Conference on Advanced Automated Testing fills this gap and offers an ideal opportunity for test designers, engineers working in test specification and automation, novices as well as testing experts, quality and/or project managers, and for test tool and service providers from around the world to come together to see, hear about, share experiences and learn about the latest advances in the industrial use of test automation. The slogan of this series describes it best: from users for users.
This year’s event is organized by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), All4Tec and German Testing Night, an organization of volunteers, in Munich. The first day will feature tutorials and training sessions on the application of test process in industrial projects. The following days will include presentations from members of the user community, keynotes from invited speakers, poster sessions, a short vendor track for sponsors and panel discussions.
Submission of title, authors and abstract:
30th April, 2014
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
We are soliciting for short proposals for 20 minute conference presentations by test automation users (incl. questions), 1,5 hour entry level or advanced tutorials and posters focusing on practical aspect of test automation. Submissions should seek for extracting a message for a broader user community and should not focus on tooling details; tools can be promoted in the vendor track organized for event sponsors. A proposal for a conference presentation or tutorial presentation shall be no longer than two A4 pages and must follow one of the following templates:https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ucaat2014
The independent program committee, composed mostly from industry stakeholders, will evaluate all proposals. Proposals in PDF format shall be submitted via easychair. The program including the slides of accepted presentations and posters will be made available electronically to participants and on the conference web site.
