Call For Papers - EuroSTAR 2007

"Defining the Profession"
Stockholm, 3rd - 6th December, 2007

The theme of the conference is 'Defining the Profession'.

• Do you consider yourself a testing professional? Do others?
• What allows you to make that claim?
• Is there a core set of skills? Are they technical skills, people skills, or both?
• What is your single most valuable skill? Can you communicate it to others?
• Can qualifications define a professional tester?
• Can your organisation contribute a best practice to the profession?

By the end of the conference both delegates and speakers should have a far better picture of the current state of our discipline - and an opinion on the direction it should be moving in. This theme is intended to be inclusive and we will look at submissions covering all aspects of software testing. After all, if your message is of value to a professional tester attending as a delegate then it should, in some way, contribute to 'defining the profession'.
Your participation will make this a conference to remember.
We look forward hearing from you.
Thanks in advance,

Stuart Reid,
Programme Chair, EuroSTAR 2007
