Submission Information

At SWTest, each podium session consists of three 30 minute presentations. There are no formal technical papers or published proceedings; however, copies of the presentations are made available to the attendees each day of the conference via a password protected page on the SWTest website.

The technical program schedule does not conflict with the SWTest EXPO so there will be ample opportunities for networking.

Podium Presenters receive these benefits:

  1. A Speaker discount registration rate
  2. Guaranteed reservation at Rancho Bernardo Inn
  3. Speakers’ Breakfast Monday morning
