Sophia Antipolis, 9 October 2019

ETSI’s User Conference on Advanced Automated Testing (UCAAT) is an annual and international conference dedicated to application aspects of automated testing including model-based testing, cloud testing, mobile testing, test methodologies, test management and standardized test specification by focusing on the practical challenges that are often faced in industry.

Rapid technical advances in IT services, transport (of all kinds), healthcare, finance, telecoms, broadcasting and smart cities are blurring the lines between the various industry sectors. Solutions bringing together previously disparate actors and technologies now need to co-exist and inter operate to an unprecedented extent. This, and the increasing presence of Artificial Intelligence, whether it be for the use of AI in testing or the testing of AI systems, brings challenges and opportunities to the entire testing community.

The UCAAT conference will open on the 22 with two tutorials and will be followed by sessions dedicated to test automation, artificial intelligence, test approaches and experiences and test languages.

So if you want to join the testing experts of this very global community, just REGISTER.
