Dear SIGiST Israel Members, Colleagues, Professionals, Ladies And Gentlemen.
Following a successful conference in 2013, I am proud to introduce to you a new event that SIGiST Israel is initiating from 2014, which is the International Testing Week 2014. We are bringing you speakers from all over the world, covering hot topics in testing today, with seminars that will enable you to get the knowledge and know-how on those topics. Some of the seminars are with hands-on exercises using laptops/PC, while others include important knowledge and methodology/processes/cognitive tools for you to use.
This year, starting the event for the first time, I invited two known speakers: Lloyd, from UK, whom you know from 2 years ago, coming with two great topics: Exploratory testing and Estimation and Dashboards. Also coming Leo Van der Aalst, from Netherlands, with additional great topics: Agile testing and Business Driven Test Management.
I hope you will find these topics relevant for you currently, or preparing you for future implementation of those topics within your companies.
I would like to wish us all a great event. Come to participate in the seminars and most importantly – take advantage of the networking with other colleagues and fellow professionals.
I encourage you to register to the event today and enjoy the benefits of the registration discounts (see registration form). For members, you may enjoy the membership discounts on top of that as well. The registration form with the seminars is provided as well, for you to choose from.

The SIGiST Israel Story - The Israeli Testing Forum
SIGiST Israel was founded in June 2000, by Mr. Alon Linetzki, and was self-sponsored, for the first few meetings. Today, after many meetings [out of which several events were sponsored by RadView, Rational (IBM) and Mercury (HP-Software)], SIGiST Israel is the official and largest professional testing community forum in the Israeli market.
The SIGiST board includes Mr. Alon Linetzki, founder and managing director Best-Testing, as SIGiST Chair and Mr. Yan Baron, Test Manager, Aternity.
Since 2005, SIGiST Israel has joined up with two main partners: the ITCB (Israeli Testing Certification Board) – on the professional aspects, and with SELA College and technology center on the business aspects.
SIGiST Israel meets every quarter; meetings are usually sponsored by testing companies, testing services companies and testing tool vendors. Once a year, SIGiST Israel is conducting its yearly conference, and invites international speakers and Israeli testing community speakers to discuss hot testing topics. The conference is being held in its current format (4-5 days), since 2006.
SIGIST Israel purpose and goals are to create a place where testing professionals can meet, speak on common issues, suggest solutions to common problems, and be a place where they can come up with a request for an answer, and get it! It aims to be the driving force and the trigger for recognition of the testing profession in Israel and is working to increase the awareness toward certification for the different levels of testing (using the ISTQB® certification scheme).
SIGiST Israel is the strongest testing forum in the Israeli testing community, and the largest (payable) conference of the testing community, committed to bring the best knowledge on testing world-wide and to cooperate with: other SIGiST boards, conferences organizers worldwide, and professional testing associations - to achieve its goals.
