UCAAT 2022, hosted by Siemens Munich on 13-15 September, is currently calling for presentations.


UCAAT is the pinnacle in the calendar of ETSI’s Technical Committee Methods for Testing and Specification. This well-established event addresses the practical challenges of testing and test automation faced by industry today. UCAAT is dedicated to all aspects of automated testing and is not limited in scope. Rapid technical advances in application areas such as information and communication technology, industrial automation, transportation (automotive, avionics, rail), enterprise information technology, healthcare, and biotechnology, as well as shifting operational landscapes such as DevOps practices and machine learning techniques applied to software development are ever increasing the demands on testing.

UCAAT 2022: Testing of Trustworthy Systems

Our society becomes increasingly dependent on complex software systems and widely interconnected systems of systems that take over more and more crucial tasks of our daily lives. These systems will be only accepted by their users if they offer a high level of trust in various facets reaching from safety, availability, business integrity, to robustness, security, and other areas. Moreover, these large systems integrate many different technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence or semantic networks, that are challenging on their own. Testing and certifying them becomes therefore an urgent task that needs to be addressed through appropriate methods, tools, and processes. UCAAT 2022 aims at discussing particularly all aspects concerning trustworthiness of systems and how it can be tackled best in testing. UCAAT 2022 provides a unique opportunity for practitioners, tool vendors, test service providers and researchers from many different application domains to come together.

Attendees will be able to exchange on:

  • Experiences gained and lessons learned from the adoption of novel test automation techniques, methods, and tools
  • The long-term application and the latest advances in the industrial use of test automation.

Target audience

The event is of particular interest for:

  • Test engineers, designers or test automation experts
  • Engineers working in test specification, automation, DevOps and RPA
  • Software developers or architects
  • Project leaders or managers in digital transformation

UCAAT 2022 is currently calling for:

  • Proposals for 20-minute conference presentations (incl. questions)
  • Posters focusing on upcoming trends and practical aspects of testing,
  • 90-min or 180-min long tutorials (presentations and/or hands-on demonstrations).

Submission details: Deadline 2 May 2022
Please briefly describe your planned presentation by 2 May 2022, using the applicable template below, and upload your filled out template in PDF format as an attachment as part of your Easychair submission via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ucaat2022. Presentations slides are only required after a positive notification of aceptance of your proposal on May 30.

We welcome submissions covering modern test automation approaches, technologies, and strategies that are applicable to industrial practice. UCAAT solicits especially experience reports, lessons learnt and case studies. Focus will be given to submissions covering the conference theme, but other submissions are also welcome.Submissions should not exceed three A4 pages and should seek to deliver a message for a broader user community test professionals and report on experiences of testing technologies and should not focusless on tooling details.

The Programme Committee will evaluate all proposals and select the best proposals matching the event’s objectives. Accepted contributions will be notified by 30 May 2022.
