About Australian Testing Days

AusTD is an inclusive conference and we value diversity. Our objective is to offer you a platform to learn, connect and grow.  We aim to bring together people from all levels of experience and backgrounds in an active and engaging environment.

Can only testers submit a talk at AusTD?

We are a software testing conference and that means that we touch all areas of technology business.  We are there to help improve software quality which involves developers, business analysts, project managers, UX designers, architects, technical writers, infrastructure team members, or anyone else in the team. Therefore, we welcome all. If you have a story to tell, submit a talk.  

What should I talk about?

Are you passionate about something and want to share it? A controversial idea, an interesting experience or something you have learned lately?  We hope to receive a broad range of submissions for the conference, so there is no set theme. We also encourage and prefer proposals based on your personal experiences as these generally make the best track sessions. Feel free to submit as many proposals as you like, but remember that quality beats quantity. We look forward to reading your ideas, feel free to blow us away! 

Here are some topics that you might want to consider:

  • Cloud engineering
  • Internet of Things
  • Mobility and Responsiveness
  • Agile or Other
  • Security
  • Performance
  • Data
  • Automation
  • Software testing techniques
  • Tooling
  • Usability and User Experience
  • Machine Learning and its impact on software testing and / or software testers
  • Artificial Intelligence and how it impacts the world of software testers

We want more local speakers to join us and therefore we are encouraging local talent to submit proposals. If you live interstate or even in New Zealand, we will pay for your economy flight and a night’s accommodation up to a maximum of AU$500.  Of course, the conference ticket is included.

Not in Australia? That’s alright too! Please submit the Google form clearly mentioning how Australian testers will benefit from your presence. We are accepting talk submissions from international speakers but remember, we are limiting travel expense coverage to AU$500.  

The last date for submissions for our Melbourne conference is 31 July.
