The 41st PNSQC Award Winners, Keynotes, and More

WOW!! Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference (PNSQC) 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.

2023 Amp It Up: Transforming Quality

Watch the 2023 Conference 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.

Congratulations to our top three speakers nominated and evaluated by their peers at the conference.

Keynotes, Invited Speakers, Presentations and Events

The conference always has a variety of industry-recognized keynote speakers, invited speakers, and 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, allowing a deep dive into topical and interesting subjects. Look for more details to unfold over the next few months while 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.
