Many advances have been made in test automation originating from many different
backgrounds, e.g. a standardized test specification and implementation language from the
telecommunication area, test driven development from the agile development school, crowd
testing from the cloud community, and model-based testing from the formal testing
The Conference is dedicated to addressing the engineering and application aspects of
testing methodologies and advanced test automation. It is a great opportunity for the «
Testing community » to come together to share experiences and learn about the latest
advances in the industrial use of test automation.
The slogan describes it best: from users for users.
UCAAT will present the latest advances made in test automation originating from many
different backgrounds (including cloud, agile, model-based testing,…).
It will be held in Munich from 16 to 18 September 2014. Book your agenda right now!
A multitude of academic conferences and workshops on automated testing already exist.
Nevertheless, many industrial experts and test practitioners miss an event dedicated to
addressing engineering and application aspects of test methodologies, and advanced test
automation. The ETSI User Conference on Advanced Automated Testing fills this gap and
offers an ideal opportunity for test designers, engineers working in test specification and
automation, novices as well as testing experts, quality and/or project managers, and for test
tool and service providers from around the world to come together to see, hear about, share
experiences and learn about the latest advances in the industrial use of test automation.
Topics of interest
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Lessons learned from applying advanced test automation technologies, e.g. TDL (Test
description language), TTCN-3 (Test and Test Control Notation), UTP (UML Testing Profile),
and domain-specific languages used in testing into existing environments in industrial case
studies and production testing
Using advanced test automation for testing of non-functional requirements, e.g. security,
Experiences from using model-based and other advanced test automation in processes with
very short release cycles or in agile environments
Advanced testing framework & methodologies, their benefits and drawbacks
Lessons learned from using TDD (Test Driven Development), ATDD (Acceptance Test Driven
Development), PBT (Property Based Testing), BDD (Behavior Driven Development), and
other advanced test processes in industrial settings
Test automation in the context of DevOps to bring development and operations together
Experiences on the effects from the usage of advanced test automation on company
Experiences on introduced advanced automation techniques in organizations
Standardization efforts related to advanced test automation
Special session on Standardization in testing
This open and interactive session is an ideal opportunity for industrial decision-makers, test
engineers, standardization experts and academia to share experiences and expectations of
the technical and financial benefits of innovative standardized approaches to testing and
Discuss the need and role of standardization in testing
Discover how practises developed in standardization can add real value to product
Learn how your organization can influence the development and adoption of these practices,
Engage in a fruitful and inspiring dialogue backed-up by real industrial success stories on
how standardized testing in general, and the work of ETSI TC MTS in particular, can respond
to the challenges of modern-day testing.
