Strategic Test Suite consists of series of themed test suites designed to evaluate chess engine's long term understanding of strategical and positional concepts.

We have had dozens of test suites. A lot of them are tactical in nature.  This test set is something different in computer chess.

Most EPD's in STS have immediate short term advantage in strategy. It could be called tactical Strategy (or threatening moves). Strategy has numerous elements. A lot of them are ordinary plans with no significant plus in evaluation -- they are ignored. Only those plans with definite plus in evaluation are recorded in STS.
