QW/QWE Consolidated Conference Material Inventory

QW/QWE Website

The table of links below is part of our project to digitize all material from the 20 Quality Week/Quality Week Europe Conferences, held from 1988 to 2002 in San Francisco, CA, USA, and Brussels, Belgium, EU.

The scanning and sorting work is now >98% complete but some of material is still waiting to be digitized. This page will be updated as we complete the digitization process.

Here is an index of all of the authors, affiliations, paper titles, and conference year: QW/QWE Complete Index [New Window]. Note that QWE events show AFTER all QW events due to a sorting anomaly.

Footnotes:

  1. Attendee counts are paid attendees. Speakers, QW/QWE Board Members, SR Staff, and some Vendor Staff attended free. For total attendance multiply by 1.25.
  2. While there was no formal committee or systematic scoring of candidate papers/presentations at these early events, many members of the informal "testing community" contributed suggestions for presentations and final choices were made by staff.
  3. The early QW conferences didn't have a "theme" but beginning with QW1991 each conference did have a declared theme.
  4. The paper count is the total number of presentations given, but some authors gave multiple papers in the same conference.
  5. The actual QW1988 conference included several papers that are not shown in the original Table of Contents (Conference Schedule); they are included here for completeness.
  6. The total number of pages in these 20 technical conferences is 22,182.
