Review of UCAAT 2014
The User Conference on Advanced Automated Testing (UCAAT) is dedicated to addressing the engineering and application aspects of testing methodologies and advanced test automation. It is a great opportunity for the testing community to come together to share experiences and learn about the latest advances in the industrial use of test automation. The slogan describes it best: from users for users. UCAAT will present the latest advances made in test automation originating from many different backgrounds (including cloud, agile, model-based testing,…).
The 2nd UCAAT was held in Munich from September 16th to 18th 2014.
The program contained a lot: 4 tutorials and 8 sessions with 2 to 4 presentations each. Each day started with an interesting keynote:
- Why standardization is important, by Klaus Vedder, Giesecke & Devrient,
- Testing with Fault Models, by Prof. Dr. Alexander Pretschner, TU München,
- Mining Oracles for Fully Automated Test Generation, by Prof. Dr. Andreas Zeller, Saarland University
There were several interesting talks on MBT each day. You can find the program and most slides at http://ucaat.etsi.org/
Not only the program was top notch, but also the people, networking and one on one conversations: you could establish new contacts and refresh old ones, exchange individual information, and had a lot of business opportunities. It was advanced automated testing from users for users, at its best.
Hope to see you again on UCAAT 2015!
Your model-based testing community
