Participants
Applications for GTAC 2011 are now CLOSED. Selected Participants will be notified by August 14.

Register as a Team
Attending conferences can be a great way to network and learn new concepts. However, taking those concepts back to your office and trying to convince your team apply them can be daunting. In order to make GTAC attendees more successful at implementing what they learn at this conference we are going to give preference to teammates from the same company applying for attendance. Bring another developer or tester (or two or three) and attend as a team so you can discuss what you learn and experience, hopefully increasing your chances of putting it into practice when you return to work.

Format
This year's Google Test Automation Conference will follow a participant-driven format to give participants the power to voice their opinions regarding speakers and content. Proposal submission and participant applications will be opened simultaneously. Once we finalize the initial set of participants, we will conduct online viewing and voting by participants for presentations. 

Registration 
If you'd like to attend GTAC 2011, please apply here by July 31. Applicants will be reviewed and selected participants will be notified by August 14. (For selection criteria, see "Selection" below.) There are no registration fees for this event. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided each day. Participants must arrange their own travel and accommodations (see the Travel Tips section for more information).

Cancellation
If you registered but can no longer attend the conference, please notify us immediately at gtac2011@google.com to give someone on the wait list the opportunity to attend.

Selection
We aim to select an active, diverse, and engaged group that will continue participation during the breaks. One of our goals is to build and strengthen the testing community and connections between testing professionals in different roles. The audience will be selected with an eye towards what they are bringing to the conference.
