by Sonal Shah on behalf of the GTAC Committee

Our goal in organizing GTAC each year is to make it a first-class conference, dedicated to presenting leading edge industry practices. The quality of submissions we've received for GTAC 2016 so far has been overwhelming. In order to include the best talks possible, we are extending the deadline for speaker and attendee submissions by 15 days. The new timelines are as follows:

June 1, 2016 June 15, 2016 - Last day for speaker, attendee and diversity scholarship submissions.
June 15, 2016 July 15, 2016 - Attendees and scholarship awardees will be notified of selection/rejection/waitlist status. Those on the waitlist will be notified as space becomes available.
August 15, 2016 August 29, 2016 - Selected speakers will be notified.

GTAC 2016 Registration is now open!

by Sonal Shah on behalf of the GTAC Committee

The GTAC (Google Test Automation Conference) 2016 application process is now open for presentation proposals and attendance. GTAC will be held at the Google Sunnyvale office on November 15th - 16th, 2016.

GTAC will be streamed live on YouTube again this year, so even if you cannot attend in person, you will be able to watch the conference remotely. We will post the livestream information as we get closer to the event, and recordings will be posted afterwards.

Presentations are targeted at students, academics, and experienced engineers working on test automation. Full presentations are 30 minutes and lightning talks are 10 minutes. Speakers should be prepared for a question and answer session following their presentation.

For presentation proposals and/or attendance, complete this form. We will be selecting about 25 talks and 300 attendees for the event. The selection process is not first come first serve (no need to rush your application), and we select a diverse group of engineers from various locations, company sizes, and technical backgrounds.

The due date for both presentation and attendance applications is June 1st, 2016.

There are no registration fees, but speakers and attendees must arrange and pay for their own travel and accommodations.

We are pleased to announce that the tenth GTAC (Google Test Automation Conference) will be held on Google’s campus in Sunnyvale (California, USA) on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 15th and 16th, 2016.  

Based on feedback from the last GTAC (2015) and the increasing demand every year, we have decided to keep GTAC on a fall schedule. This schedule is a change from what we previously announced.

The schedule for the next few months is:

May 1, 2016  - Registration opens for speakers and attendees.
June 1, 2016 - Registration closes for speaker and attendee submissions.
June 30, 2016 - Selected attendees will be notified.
August 15, 2016 - Selected speakers will be notified.
November 14, 2016 - Rehearsal day for speakers.
November 15-16, 2016 - GTAC 2016!

As part of our efforts to increase diversity of speakers and attendees at GTAC,  we will be offering travel scholarships for selected applicants from traditionally underrepresented groups in technology.
