GTAC 2014: Call for Proposals & Attendance

Posted by Anthony Vallone on behalf of the GTAC Committee

The application process is now open for presentation proposals and attendance for GTAC (Google Test Automation Conference) (see initial announcement) to be held at the Google Kirkland office (near Seattle, WA) on October 28 - 29th, 2014.

GTAC will be streamed live on YouTube again this year, so even if you can’t attend, you’ll be able to watch the conference from your computer.

Speakers
Presentations are targeted at student, academic, and experienced engineers working on test automation. Full presentations and lightning talks are 45 minutes and 15 minutes respectively. Speakers should be prepared for a question and answer session following their presentation.

Application
For presentation proposals and/or attendance, complete this form. We will be selecting about 300 applicants for the event.

Deadline
The due date for both presentation and attendance applications is July 28, 2014.

Fees
There are no registration fees, and we will send out detailed registration instructions to each invited applicant. Meals will be provided, but speakers and attendees must arrange and pay for their own travel and accommodations.

Update : Our contact email was bouncing - this is now fixed.

    1. No, we don't have a theme this year. All test automation topics will be considered.

  3. I cannot attend in person. Is it correct to assume the streaming YouTube presentations will be open to the general public and will not require presentation? Thanks.

    1. The live streaming will be public and will not require registration. We will post a link to the stream before the event starts.

  4. Do you get a registration confirmation? Or was this bounced as well?

    1. The submit confirmation page at the end of the registration form is all the confirmation you'll need. The form has not had any issues. We'll notify all applicants within a few weeks after the deadline has passed.
