The 8th edition of UCAAT, the User Conference on Advanced Automated Testing took place virtually in October 2021.

UCAAT 2021: Testing to the Edge

Test process automation has proven to increase productivity and product quality. As the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted and increased the demands on various IT systems and services in terms of interoperability, scalability, and adaptability, test automation is essential for delivering agile solutions in uncertain times. Sharing knowledge and learning from experience of others helps everyone to get better prepared for future challenges.

The annual ETSI User Conference on Advanced Automated Testing (UCAAT) is the pinnacle in the calendar of ETSI’s Technical Committee Methods for Testing and Specification (TC MTS). 


UCAAT is dedicated to the practical engineering and application aspects of automated testing, including experiences from the use of new techniques for test automation, advanced test automation processes, and standardised testing languages and methodologies for test automation in different application domains, such as IT services, telecommunications, transportation, healthcare, finance, and smart cities.

Target audience

The event is of particular interest for:

  • Test engineer, designer or test automation expert
  • Engineer working in test specification, automation, DevOps and RPA
  • Software developer or architect
  • Project leader or manager in digital transformation
  • Test tool or service provider
  • Test and quality assurance analyst

… then UCAAT 2021 provided a unique opportunity to get together with your peers and exchange on experiences gained and lessons learned, both from the adoption of novel test automation techniques, methods, and tools and from the long-term application of test automation.
