As evidenced by the significant response to the SEPG Europe 2012 call for participation, it’s easy to see that there is a lot of ¡Passion for Process! in the global software engineering community.
The SEPG Europe 2012 technical program is currently being assembled, but the keynote speakers have been announced. These five process improvement thought-leaders will share their passion and expert insights from the fields of academia, government, and industry.
If you want to learn, share, and network with passionate professionals from around the world, register for SEPG Europe 2012 today. The first 75 registrants will save up to $400 off standard registration rates. Act soon, because the discount expires on 19 March 2012, or when 75 delegates have registered–whichever comes first.
Delegates may also book hotel accommodations at the NH Eurobuilding Hotel Madrid, which is also the site of SEPG Europe 2012 conference activities.
