The New Century has begun! Internet Quality and Software Quality worries are pressing issues!

QWE2000 focuses on quality technology with a careful, honest look at current methods and cautious assessments of future trends.

QWE2000: The 4th year of serving the SQA community with state-of-the-art information!


Y2K is here! The celebrations are over. It's a new century and it's time for new beginnings. It's time for real change. It's time to take Initiatives For The Future.

The explosive growth in interest in the Internet (WWW) has become the main driving factor in software testing and quality assurance. WebSites are very complex pieces of software, and the proven stand-alone application-based and client-server approaches software quality approaches ought to apply to websites as well. Do they?

QWE2000's theme Initiatives For The Future reflects this shift. This year our Tutorial and Keynote speakers have real-world experience that can be used on your projects. Over 60 speakers are focused on Technology, Applications, Internet and Management topics.

QWE2000 is an event NOT to be missed!
