See, hear, share experiences and learn about model-based testing

In the last ten years model-based testing has grown to be a widely applied technology. Successful implementation has occurred in many industries including information and communication technology, internet protocols, information systems, embedded systems, and medical systems.

Model-based testing users and experts have been looking for an opportunity for test designers, engineers working in test specification and automation, testing experts, quality and/or project managers, and for test tool and service providers from around the world to come together to see, hear about, share experiences as well as learn about the latest advances in the industrial use of model-based testing. 

The first ETSI Model-based Testing User Conference was organized with this mind and was a roaring success with over 150 participants from all over the world.

The second ETSI Model-based Testing User Conference aims to continue to delight all the participants and sponsors with the best model-based testing conference in the world. Staying true to the spirit that made the first conference a success.

  • Industrial experiences and case studies about applying model-based testing in different application domains
