We’re back from our first in-person event in 2 years, and we had an absolute blast. 1000+ testers came together in sunny Copenhagen as we celebrated 30 years of the testing community. We’re already so excited for EuroSTAR 2023 – taking place in Antwerp.
Our Call for Speakers is open until September 9th, which means it’s time to start thinking about your submission. 2023 programme chair Kristoffer Nordström invites you to take to the stage and speak on the theme ‘Software Development is a Social Activity‘, in homage to Jerry Weinberg and his legacy. You can learn all about the theme on our submissions page, but you can interpret the theme your own way – use your imagination!
Topics include communication, software testing, test automation and its role in the work we do, team building, creating healthy organisations, and lots more. Speaking on the EuroSTAR stage is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Here’s why you don’t want to miss out on speaking this year.

We’re going to the zoo!
Did we mention that EuroSTAR takes place at the zoo in Antwerp? A Room with a ZOO is the only convention centre in the world with its very own zoo – and one of the first scientific zoos in the world. It also boasts a rich legacy, with stunning 19th century architecture; including beautiful marble features, high ceilings, and lots of natural sunlight. All profits made by the convention centre are invested into research and nature conservation worldwide. We’re blown away by the inspirational setting – and we’re sure you will be too.
