The CONQUEST conference has been held annually since 1997. It has been the platform for software professionals bringing together the software engineering community to discuss software quality aspects, to see how quality engineering methods and techniques are used in both industry and science, to see the latest tools, to share experiences on projects and representative case studies and to hear about newest advancements. Renowned national and international companies present their products and services at a conference exhibition paralleling the conference every year.
About 400 IT experts from industry and research from 28 nations came to Potsdam last year.
