Submit Panels & Special Sessions

2021 ITC is accepting proposals for panels and special sessions.


Guidelines for Authors

A panel proposal should address a test-related hot topic that is of substantial interest to the majority of ITC attendees, because it is controversial or increasing in importance. The proposal should include a panel title, introduction, the name of the organizer, a proposed moderator, and proposed panelists, along with contact information for all. Proposals must be complete. If necessary, the panel chairs can provide feedback before the submission deadline to incomplete proposals.

By means of submission, panel organizers, moderators and panelists agree to register for and participate in ITC 2021, in case the submission is accepted.

Key Dates

  • Submission deadline: June 15, 2021
  • Notification of panel acceptance: July 22, 2021

Proposal abstracts submission should be made electronically as a single PDF file here.


Special Sessions

Guidelines for Authors

ITC 2021 is open for proposals for special sessions. These are meant to target hot and emerging test topics complementary to the regular sessions of the conference. One of the objectives is also to cover cross topics, i.e. topics considered “border line” for the test community, but have, or are expected to have, a significant impact on the field. Proposers of special sessions are assumed to be able and willing to serve as organizers of the session, i.e. contact speakers, moderators, etc. Special session organizers can also be speakers or moderators in their own proposals.

In detail, the following information should be provided:

  • A title of the special session
  • Name, contact information and short biography of the organizer(s).
  • An abstract with motivation and explanation why this session will be attractive to the general ITC community and its alignment with topics in this area.
  • Duration (60 or 90 minutes) and layout of the session. The layout should show at least two long (30 min) and no more than two short (15 min) presentations.
  • The list of prospective contributed presentations, including titles, names of the presenters/co-authors, their affiliations and two-sentence bios of the corresponding presenters. Short abstracts for the prospective contributions will be an advantage.
  • Expected number of attendees for this session and strategy for promoting this session.

By means of their submission, organizers and presenters agree to register for and participate in ITC 2021, in case their submission is accepted.

Key Dates

  • Session proposal submission deadline: June 15, 2021
  • Notification of special session acceptance: July 22, 2021

2019 ITC mobile app & photos

We received very nice feedback on the ITC mobile app.  If you haven’t already completed the mobile app survey (from within the app) then please do so because your feedback is valuable to us.

There are lots of photos within the mobile app that you can download.  You can also download any of the discussions.  The mobile app will stay active for six months after the conference.

The winner of the photo contest was Mr. Makoto Eiki with the most likes on the mobile app for this nice sunset photo.

There are also a few hundred photos from a professional photographer which you can access with this link on dropbox –

We plan to use the mobile app again next year.  Here is a nice summary of frequently asked questions from the app how-to guide – link

Thanks for participating in ITC and thanks for you feedback.
