Want to speak at EuroSTAR?

Anyone can submit to speak at the EuroSTAR Conference. Submissions are reviewed by an independent review panel of experienced software testers and also by the Programme Committee. The best scoring submissions are then used to compile the programme. A small number of speakers are invited and do not come through the submission process – this is at the discretion of the Programme Chair and his/her Committee. Our 2019 Call for speakers is now open – see details.

How does someone get on the review panel for the conference?

If you would like to be considered for a place on the independent review panel, please send your letter of application to [email protected] stating why you believe you would be a suitable reviewer.

How is the host city chosen each year?

The host city is chosen by the EuroSTAR Conference team. The team looks for somewhere desirable and fun, with an international airport for easy access. In addition, we try to choose cities in areas where there are lots of testers to minimise the need to travel for as many people as possible. If you have any suggestions feel free to let us know!
