Learn about test automation techniques and user experiences.

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.

The Conference is dedicated to addressing the engineering and application aspects of testing methodologies and advanced test automation. It is a great opportunity for the « Testing community » to come together to share experiences and learn about the latest advances in the industrial use of test automation.

The slogan describes it best: from users for users.

UCAAT will present the latest advances made in test automation originating from many different backgrounds (including cloud, agile, model-based testing,…).

It will be held in Munich from 16 to 18 September 2014. Book your agenda right now!


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.

Topics of interest

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • Lessons learned from applying advanced test automation technologies, e.g. TDL (Test description language), TTCN-3 (Test and Test Control Notation), UTP (UML Testing Profile), and domain-specific languages used in testing into existing environments in industrial case studies and production testing 
  • Using advanced test automation for testing of non-functional requirements, e.g. security, and performance
  • Experiences from using model-based and other advanced test automation in processes with very short release cycles or in agile environments
  • Advanced testing framework & methodologies, their benefits and drawbacks
  • Lessons learned from using TDD (Test Driven Development), ATDD (Acceptance Test Driven Development), PBT (Property Based Testing), BDD (Behavior Driven Development), and other advanced test processes in industrial settings
  • Test automation in the context of DevOps to bring development and operations together
  • Experiences on the effects from the usage of advanced test automation on company organizations
  • Experiences on introduced advanced automation techniques in organizations
  • Standardization efforts related to advanced test automation

Special session on Standardization in testing

This open and interactive session is an ideal opportunity for industrial decision-makers, test engineers, standardization experts and academia to share experiences and expectations of the technical and financial benefits of innovative standardized approaches to testing and specification.
  • Discuss the need and role of standardization in testing
  • Discover how practises developed in standardization can add real value to product development,
  • Learn how your organization can influence the development and adoption of these practices,
  • Engage in a fruitful and inspiring dialogue backed-up by real industrial success stories on how standardized testing in general, and the work of ETSI TC MTS in particular, can respond to the challenges of modern-day testing.
