Hi fellow quality enthusiasts!
Call for Papers
Estonian Testing Board is proud to announce the Call for Papers for the third Nordic Testing Days, to be held June 4 – 6 in Tallinn, Estonia. The conference venue is Meriton Grand Conference Centre located right next to the charming Old Town.
The conference is organized by volunteer testing practitioners committed to strengthening the community and providing software quality related education.
The aim of the conference is to learn how to create higher quality software and to connect different disciplines to become more aware of each others’ practices and experiences.
Sharing the Experience
People come to Nordic Testing Days to share their experiences with quality. In order to diversify learning, we would like to have testers, developers, analysts, user experience experts, clients and all other roles involved in software development to come, partner up and share their experiences as well as learn from one another.
At previous conferences we have had programmers talking about unit testing, UX people teaching about usability, device gurus sharing their knowledge about certification of devices. Testers have shared experiences about tools, security testing, how to be agile and how to be a great leader among many other topics. People have enjoyed inspiring talks and workshops where they can engage with the instructors and their peers and try out new and different things.
Don’t limit yourself to the topics and formats we have suggested; you are welcome to offer your own vision.
The conference starts with a tutorial day followed by two conference days. On the tutorial day presenters provide detailed presentations and discussions of topics based on their expert knowledge in the given areas. The two conference days have three parallel tracks. Conference session can be in a form of a track or a workshop as mentioned below. Alternatively you can also propose your own format for the session.
The first conference day ends with a fun social event. We also invite you to propose activities for this event.
You can apply to lead three types of sessions:
Tutorial – Full or half day session of teaching or sharing an experience in detail
Track – a talk on a topic – 45 minutes in length + questions
Workshop – Hands-on session where participants can do something – 90 minutes in length.
You can also lead a peer-to-peer session – a round-table discussion of a problem or an idea together with your peers.
After you have selected the session type you wish to lead, please specify an appropriate difficulty level for it.
Tallinn is sea-side city and June is the time to start thinking about swimming as it is getting warm enough. Thus, we ask you to specify thedifficulty level of your session by selecting either “getting your
toes wet”, “like fish in the sea” or “deep dive”.
