Dear Colleague,

Have you got a software testing success story to tell? If
you're working on a test project that uses new methods or
technology that other teams could benefit from, I encourage
you to submit a proposal to speak at STAREAST 2003.

STAR is the largest and most respected conference in the
software testing industry. Its primary focus is to present
real-world software testing experiences and the techniques
that are making a difference in the workplace. The STAREAST
2003 Software Testing Conference kicks off May 12-16, 2003
in Orlando, Florida.

We invite you to submit a presentation proposal for this
premiere event based on your experiences and insight into
software testing issues. We're interested in hearing about:
- Projects you're working on
- Successes you've achieved
- Testing challenges you face
- The strategies you use to deal with them

We welcome talks on Internet/intranet testing, testing in
RAD or market-driven environments, client/server and
object-oriented test strategies, test automation, and
anything else that may be applicable to today's software
testing workplace. Proposals are due by December 2, 2002.
