RoboCon 2020

RoboCon 2020

RoboCon is an annual gathering for the Robot Framework community. It provides a great possibility to learn from the experts, hear how the framework is used in different places, and most importantly, meet fellow Robot Framework users as well as its developers. The event is organized in Helsinki, Finland, on January 14-17.

The main conference venue is Bio Rex, Mannerheimintie 22-24, where all talks will be held.

Pre-conference workshops are organize at Siili, Ruoholahdenkatu 21, and post-conference sprints at Eficode, Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu 25.

Siili's talks


Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is RPA on steroids. In this talk, the ongoing progress from RPA to IPA and beyond is presented first. Then we consider how Robot Framework and intelligent microservices can form a flexible basis for the IPA. The current Robotics as a Service (RaaS) setup by Siili is described as an example. Finally, some applications of machine learning and related approaches are discussed in the context of IPA.

D.Sc. (Tech.) Petteri Mannersalo is the machine learning lead in Intelligent Automation at Siili Solutions.

Self Managing Testing Pipelines

Tommi will be sharing a very simple demo of a test prioritization algorithm that we have been working on to demonstrate these issues and possibilities of the algorithms. The algorithm is especially suitable for acceptance testing and system testing since it does not require any explicit code coverage or model data.

Tommi is currently working as a consultant at Siili Solutions in Software Automation Laboratories (SALabs) unit.


RoboCon is organized by Robot Framework Foundation, a non-profit consortium that also sponsors the development of Robot Framework. Possible profits from the conference will be used for this purpose too.

Conference hashtag to use on Twitter and elsewhere is #robocon. Robot Framework Slack community also has a dedicated #robocon channel to ask question and chat with other participants. To contact the organizers directly, use
