In 2013, ISBSG started to organize a one-day conference aligned with the traditional yearly workshop. The name of the conference, IT Confidence, was chosen to stress the fact that the IT industry could actually get more confidence to deliver successful projects when using mature measurement and estimating techniques and relevant historical data.
Since 2013 (Rio de Janeiro), 2 additional successful events were organized: 2014 (Tokyo) and 2015 (Florence). This year, the IT Confidence is going to be organized together with the Southern California Chapter of the International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association (ICEAA) in Los Angeles. ISBSG Gold member Galorath is the host of the event which is scheduled on Wednesday September 7th. Find out more about this event and the Call for Papers/Presentations on the conference website: itconfidence2016.wordpress.com. The event is free for all attendants, but regisration is mandatory.
