Brian Gaudreau Discusses Extending the Call for Proposals
The PNSQC team is jumping for joy at the number of proposals received during the open call. Not only do we love the response, but are awed that the number of abstracts is at a near-record high.
Extending for a limited time!
As every quality professional knows, however, quantity is simply not enough. In an effort to make the conference more well-rounded and higher caliber, the program committee has decided to extend the call until April 15th for specific tracks. This is part of the plan to provide comprehensive session tracks.
To make the conference the best ever with greater depth, the call is extended for two weeks until Sunday, April 15th at 11:59 PM PST for proposals in two specific categories: Technology & Tools, and the track for Security, Performance and Automation. Read on for more details about each track.
