QWE'98 is the second in the continuing series of International Software Quality Week/Europe Conferences that focus on advances in software test technology, quality control, risk management, software safety, and test automation. Software analysis methodologies, supported by advanced automated software test methods, promise major advances in system quality and reliability, assuring continued competitiveness. QWE papers are reviewed and selected by a distinguished International Advisory Board. The QWE98 conference is sponsored by Software Research, Inc.

The mission of the QWE'98 Conference is to increase awareness of the importance of software quality and the methods used to achieve it. It seeks to promote software quality by providing technological education and opportunities for information and exchange of experience within the software development and testing community.

ABOUT QWE'98's THEME: EURO & Y2K: The Industrial Impact

The QWE'98 theme "EURO and Y2K: The Industrial Impact" draws attention to the implications of the EURO and Year-2000 (Y2K) conversion efforts on the industry. Many believe that the Year-2000 problem will bring much-needed focus to all aspects of software quality, and may foster very strong interest in software quality questions of all kinds in the coming years. Europe has a particular challenge by adding the EURO Conversion effort to the already imposing Y2K problem.


QWE'98 is soliciting 45 and 90 minute presentations, half-day standard seminar/tutorial proposals, 90-minute mini-tutorial proposals, or proposals for participation in a panel and "hot topic" discussions on any area of testing and automation, including:
