The 4th Annual Google Test Automation Conference is being held on October 21st, 22nd, 2009 at Google’s Zurich office.
The Google Test Automation Conference began in 2006 under the guidance and inspiration of Allen Hutchinson, then Test Engineering Manager. The first annual GTAC, then called LTAC, after its London location, was hosted at Google’s London Office. Due to the tremendous success of LTAC it was decided that GTAC would be formalized as an annual Google conference for test engineers, the location rotating to cover diverse locations, interests and issues.

This year’s conference is under the theme “Testing for the Web”. We want to discuss test automation strategies, tools, and challenges present when creating applications for the web – realized both in the desktop and mobile environments. Please have a look at the call for proposals for more details.

Google also selects attendees. That is, one has to send an essay to show one’s interest in the conference and on the basis of these essay’s, Google chooses who they want to invite as an attendee.

August 1 – Deadline for presentation proposals
