Get Together for the 2022 Quality Jam!

Moss Drake

PNSQC is celebrating its 40th anniversary and it’s time to kick-off the 2022 Call for Papers with a Quality Jam.  This will be an afternoon of lightning talks to inspire and be inspired for new proposals on software quality — a jam session to get together as a group and see where the “music” takes us.

We are inviting you to submit your idea for a lightning talk (15 minutes).  The topic can be anything that piques the interest of the community and shares your innovative ideas on software quality as they relate to people, process, and tools.

Just as in a musical jam session, the Quality Jam is a friendly setting for both beginners and old hands.  Even if you’ve never presented like this, PNSQC wants to give you the space and the support you need to enjoy this event with friends and colleagues. There’s no judgment and everybody’s welcome.

As mentioned, this event kicks off the Call for Proposals for the 2022 conference. We plan to offer a hybrid event: both physical in Portland, Oregon, and virtual on Zoom, with breaks for networking, announcements, and the PNSQC 2021 Conference Award presentations. You will be joined by other software quality enthusiasts who would also share their experiences.

Maybe this is your resolution for the new year — submit a talk and see where it takes you.

The event will take place on the afternoon of January 25th and will run for 2 hours, concluding with networking and a happy hour.
