Turkey’s Premier Software Testing Conference

Ankara Testing Days is one of the longest-running and most respected community organizations on software testing and quality assurance in Turkey. Until it has been converted into a great international conference, the event had featured 11 meetups since 2014, hosted more than 2000 curious individuals and covered a wide variety of some of the hottest topics in the software testing field. This year’s conference motto is “Testing at the spot where Humans and Technology converges!”. With our roster of guest keynotes, experienced practitioners and the experts from different domains, we would like to explore the impact of technology on the human side of software testing and we would like to highlight how testers can transform their organizations into innovative, efficient, and sustainable places of the future.

Call for Speakers

Ankara Testing Days 2020 will be hosting three different types of sessions. There will be keynotes (regular talks), discussion panels, and for the first time at our conference, ignite talks. Ignite talks are series of 15-minute presentations, where each presenter uses no slides, but flipcharts and/or other interactive material through which they can share a burning idea with the participants.

Call for speakers will be open from 16th of September, 2019 till 15th of November, 2019. Final announcements of acceptance decisions will be sent to chosen speakers by 20th of December, 2019.


We have always been looking for the best speakers on the International software testing stage!

Conference Venue

We have found the perfect space for Ankara Testing Days 2020


Discover our conference venue in the center of historic Ankara. The Ankara HiltonSA Hotel lies near the capital’s commercial and diplomatic activity. We are organizing Ankara Testing Days in style; the Kavaklidere ballroom is an elegant venue for our conference and it supports up to 750 guests. Fingers crossed!


Set in the Kavaklıdere neighborhood of Çankaya, the hotel is blocks from Ankara’s premier street, Tunalı Hilmi Caddesi. Except from your time in Ankara Testing Days; you can feed the ducks in Kuğulu Park, shop in Karum mall or watch the street life from an Ankara patisserie.
