Submission Guidelines

**2019 Closing Date: Monday 4th February**

The Programme for the EuroSTAR Conference is independently chosen by the European software testing community. With the exception of a small number of invited speakers, all sessions at the conference are chosen from the review process.

Once the deadline has passed, all submissions are assigned (anonymously) to a review panel of over 40 volunteers from the testing community who score the proposed talks on criteria such as engagement, original ideas, scope and relevance to the theme. All submissions are also reviewed by the Programme Committee and the best scoring submissions are then used to create a diverse and balanced programme.

Sales pitches or talks that promote a particular tool or service do not make it on to the EuroSTAR Programme. However, real customer case studies and experiences are always enjoyed by delegates and especially when a speaker demonstrates how they overcame problems and found solutions.

So how can I propose a talk?

As a starting point, read the Call for Submissions of the 2019 Programme Chair Isabel Evans. Your submission should take into consideration the type of presentation sought by the Programme Chair & Committee and should be aligned to this year’s theme which is ‘Working Well‘!
