EuroSTAR Conference Submission Guide
The Programme for the EuroSTAR Conference is independently chosen by the European software testing community with over 30 community reviewers taking time to review and rate sessions. With the exception of a small number of invited speakers, all sessions at the conference are chosen from this community review process. See testimonials from previous EuroSTAR Speakers. Once the deadline has passed, all submissions are anonymously assigned to a review panel of over 40 experienced testers from the community. The Submission Guide will give tips on how to submit a great proposal for the EuroSTAR 2021 Call for Speakers.
The reviewers then score the proposed talks on criteria such as:
– Original Ideas
– Scope & Relevance to the theme
All submissions are also reviewed by the 2021 EuroSTAR Programme Committee and the best rated 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 2021 Call for Speakers. 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.
Submissions welcome up to Sunday 7th February 2021.
We’ve tried to make the web form as simple as possible for submitters but please do send feedback to [email protected] if you notice any errors or have problems submitting and we will resolve the problem as soon as possible.
If you are thinking about submitting to EuroSTARConf next year, start preparing your submission as early as possible. We receive 500 submissions each year so makes yours stand out and submit early so you don’t miss the deadline. The testing community is waiting to hear what you have to say – share YOUR experience and YOUR thoughts on Europe’s greatest software testing stage!
