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 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 balanced programme.
Sales pitches or talks that promote a particular tool or service do not make it on to the EuroSTAR Programme.
So how can I propose a talk?
As a starting point, read the Call for Submissions of the 2018 Programme Chair Rikard Edgren. 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 ‘je ne sais pas‘!
The deadline for receipt of submissions is Monday, February 5th, 2018. Successful applicants are also invited to submit a paper for consideration as Best Conference Paper – this doesn’t not have to be submitted with your application but please indicate on the form whether you intend to provide one.
We’ve tried to make the web form as simple as possible for submitters but please feedback to [email protected] if you notice any errors or have problems submitting and we will resolve the problem as soon as possible.
Lastly, if you’re thinking about submitting, do it now, don’t put it on the long finger and miss the deadline. The testing community is waiting to hear what you have to say – why not have your say on Europe’s greatest software testing stage!
