The Future is Now!
We are announcing the theme for the 2024 Conference and that theme is "The Future Is NOW!"
We are often excited and curious about what exactly the future will hold for all of us, and the future of quality is no exception.
However, we don't have to wait for the future to arrive, as we are the ones that actively shape it.
Come join us and help us explore ways that technology and processes, software systems, and human interactions will help us get to the future we want and what we want it to be.
This year's conference is a hybrid event: both physically in Portland, Oregon, and virtually on Zoom.
Join us October 14-16 2024!

The 41st PNSQC Award Winners, Keynotes, and More
WOW!! Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference (PNSQC) just hosted its 41st Conference and what a grand success it was. It showcased 4 Keynotes, 31 technical papers by practitioners, 4 panel discussions, and 8 half-day workshops along with other activities. The conference moved to a new venue that offered ample networking and a feel of downtown Portland. It was a lot of fun.
Thanks again to our fabulous sponsors, dedicated Paper Reviewers, Volunteers, attendees, and Board Members for making the Pacific NW Software Quality Conference so great. Congratulations to our top three speakers nominated and evaluated by their peers at the conference.
Watch the Keynotes
Meanwhile, catch the 2023 Keynotes on the PNSQC YouTube channel. With so many talks, panels, and discussions packed into two days, there’s a lot you may want to revisit. Get inspired, learn from a speaker’s tips or insights, and share a video with your team or colleagues.
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.
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.
