Call for Speakers

Finnish Software Testing Board FiSTB organizes annual FiSTB Testing Assembly on Thursday 16.11.2023 9-17 in Sokos Hotel Presidentti, Helsinki.

This 400 person testing event is aimed for certified testers, TestausOSY members and other people interested in testing and quality assurance. The seminar registration will be open in May.

At this stage we open the call for speakers. The theme of 2023 is ‘Testing. Business. Future’. There are so many ways to interpret this theme, but here are some pointers to get you thinking.

  • Latest trends & future in software testing or development
  • Business (needs, end users expectations etc.) vs. testing
  • RPA & test automation
  • Testing in agile software development
  • Interesting case presentation about real-life projects, including failed ones ⇓
    Or anything else testing related – please suggest!

Presentation can be in English or Finnish and the length is 30 min + 10 minutes for Q&A.

No sales pitches about your company or products, please!

The event has a small budget, so we cannot pay the speakers, but we can offer a great experience, audience and visibility!

Send an application with the following information:

  • Presentation title
  • Short abstract of your presentation
  • Presentation language English, Finnish or doesn’t matter?
  • Is this new presentation or have you presented it before, where?
  • Short description of yourself (bio) and picture of yourself

Your application should be sent to by May 5, 2023. The program committee will choose the speakers as soon as possible, but at latest May 20, 2022. The deadline for final presentations is September 15, 2023 for the review. If you need help with the presentation, we can also help you.
