The EuroSTAR Team
We all remember key moments in our work lives that had a significant impact and changed how we thought and moved forward, new directions we took, moments that inspired us to get out of our comfort zones. For example, it might have been that new role you took on, that new approach that succeeded or indeed that failed project you learnt so much from.
For me, conferences have made up many of my key moments. Three spring to mind:
These highlight how valuable conferences are for gaining knowledge; how getting out of your comfort zones to present and interact is so beneficial, and how nice being part of a community can be.
I am now experiencing a new key moment… becoming the 2021 Programme Chair of my favourite conference. It was such an honour and a delight when Lorraine at EuroSTAR asked me to work with the programme committee (that will soon be announced) to help shape the conference.
EuroSTAR 2020 brought us the challenge of online – not only was that challenge overcome, but it has set us up to have an even better online experience in 2021 (think how great those speed meets were, the ease of dropping in on an AMA… and so much more).
So let’s make EuroSTAR 2021 a key moment for both speakers and attendees alike. This call for speakers includes a theme to help guide you in your submission.
Call for Submissions is now closed
The conference theme is “Engage”.
When picking this, one fundamental message I wanted to convey was the importance of focusing on the positive and sharing experiences of what worked for you or how you turned problems into opportunities.
Here are a few of the many ways to interpret ‘engage’ to help guide your thinking for 2021 submissions.
We are interested in your ideas on all the topics relevant to effective testing – such as, testing in agile and DevOps, observability and monitoring, CI/CD pipelines and continuous testing, non-functional testing (performance, security, usability, accessibility, etc.), test automation, API testing, testing with microservices and contract testing, mobile testing, model based testing, exploratory testing and test techniques, coding for testers, leadership in testing, test strategies in different contexts, etc.
We are looking for:
– Track-talks (30 mins)
– Keynotes (45 mins)
– Half-day tutorial (3.5 hours)
Preference will be given to submissions that are experience reports and have a strong practical element, because understanding is enhanced when we ‘learn by doing’.
So, share what engages you in your work, what holds your attention, what engrosses you in testing. At the end of the day, if you think you could engage people with your story, we’d love to hear from you.
With kind regards,
EuroSTAR 2021 Programme Chair
