QualityWeek™ (QW 1988-2002) and five QualityWeek/Europe™(QWE 1998-2002) conferences
advanced and popularized automated testing of desktop and web applications.
served over 15,000 academic and industry leaders
in open international technology forums supporting
a range of innovative concepts in
and software security and reliability.
hundreds of consultants' and technologists' professional careers,
including many of today's software testing technology leaders.
Overall, in 20 conferences over 15 years there were
> 1,300 Technical Papers
presented, vetted by an
International Advisory Board
of > 130 academics and industrial technology leaders.
An archive of the entire content of the 20 QW/QWE conferences
is being assembled and will soon be released to the community.
