Call for Papers

So many new things are happening in IT which have an impact on testing and quality. Artificial intelligence is on top of that list and the impact is and will be big for testing and quality. However, a multitude of other developments, such as continuous delivery through swift pipelines, engagement with low code platforms, diverse platform deliveries, and extensive (platform) renewals to eliminate legacy systems, are reshaping the testing and quality landscape.

Beyond the perspective of „How testers should adapt to new technologies,“ we are looking for an exploration of the question, „How can these technologies enhance our testing capabilities?“

This all means that we need to transform testing, the people around us, and foremost also ourselves to deal with this new stuff. We are sure that this is the world that you are living and working in. For that reason, we like to hear your stories how to become Futureproof in the software quality :

    • How have you adapted to consistently perform at the pinnacle of your capabilities?
    • In what ways have you transformed your testing practices or organizational methodologies to extract valuable insights from your tests?
    • What is the main area the future testers will deal with? Implementing AI? Cyber security? Accessibility testing? Non-functional testing? Or something else?

Share your stories of success, lessons learned from failures, and the vision that has guided your journey. We are committed to providing constructive feedback to aid in refining your submission. It’s important to note that while feedback is not a guarantee of a spot in the program, all submissions will undergo impartial review by our PROGRAM COMMITTEE, considering a limited number of speaker slots and other factors. Be a part of SANAE Software Testing BEER.EX 2024 in understanding the complex changes happening in IT and share your own views on stage.
