The next in the series of Intelligent Testing conferences will take place on the afternoon of 18 November, at the UWE Conference Centre in Bristol.  If you have attended either of the previous two conferences we very much hope you will be keen to join us again and if you haven’t been before we can tell you that the feedback from those who have attended has been very positive so maybe you’ll join us this time.

The conference keynote address will be provided by Paul Gerrard, a distinguished software test expert, author of several testing books, host of the UK Test Management Forum and Chair of the Eurostar 2014 Conference in Dublin later this year. He is a popular speaker and is always worth listening to. There will also be presentations on a number of other topics including how to improve application security testing, the testing benefits of service virtualization, using defect prediction to target testing efforts and reducing defects with PSP.

The event is also a great opportunity to network with other software test professionals in the area.
