Announcing 
The 40th Annual PNSQC
Conference

The Evolution of Quality

For the 2022 conference, we‘re celebrating our 40th anniversary and showcasing how the industry, technology, and the approach to quality have changed over the past decades.

This year, we‘re planning to offer a hybrid event: both physically in Portland, Oregon, and virtually on Zoom. Join us October 10-12, 2022!

Call for Proposals - Closed

PNSQC‘s Call for Proposals is now open. It only takes 5 minutes to submit an idea. 

Since its inception, the Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference (PNSQC) has put quality at the forefront. The conference program emphasizes three tracks of interest in developing high-quality software:

  • Emerging Technology
  • Management, Process, and Practices
  • and Methods and Tools.

Authors can submit multiple proposals, but each proposal should be limited to a single topic. Any individual author will only be accepted once as the primary author.

This year‘s conference adopts the theme The Evolution of Quality. We are looking for ideas that explore past successes in quality, experience reports as you try new tools and methods, and quantum leaps forward as you try out new and emerging technologies.

Take the opportunity to change the face of quality by becoming a part of the 40th-anniversary conference. Send us a talk proposal today. Submissions close at 11:59 pm PST on Friday, April 15th, 2022 Deadline extended until Monday, May 9th, 2022!

Keynotes, Invited Speakers, Presentations and Events

The conference always has a variety of industry recognized keynote speakers, and invited speakers, panel discussions on key topics of today and tomorrow. There will also be lightning sessions, workshops, and social events. Interesting Conference Papers, Presentations and Posters will provide new ideas and insights that can be applied upon returning to work. The conference is also complemented by a full day of workshops that allow for a deep dive into topical and interesting subjects. Look for more details unfolding over the next few months as the conference agenda is finalized.

Tracks Abound

The Program Committee is putting a lot of energy and enthusiasm into the tracks this year. Having more speakers and shorter breaks was a popular change for last year that will be carried forward this year. The tracks cover a wide range of topics designed to interest managers, developers, testers, and other engineering professionals. 

Speaking at PNSQC

PNSQC is seeking speakers of all experience levels and backgrounds to contribute to our conference program. Speaking in front of your peers offers benefits far beyond what a general attendee comes away with. Each year, we present three (3) awards for the top presentations chosen in real-time by the attendees via the PNSQC mobile app, so the opportunity to be recognized by your peers and the software quality community is even stronger.
