SIGIST stands for ”Specialist Interest Group In Software Testing”.

The term was created by BCS The Chartered institute for IT in 1989, and has since then spread all over the world.

We aim to start a branch here in Sweden with a similar mission as the original group in the U.K.

The basic language will be English to enhance the reach for this Community to other SIGISTs all over the world.

If a speaker strongly wants to speak in Swedish, this will be communicated prior to the conference.

We want to increase the competence in the Testing and QA industry and create both a better environment for professionals.

SIGIST aims to provide a place where you can go and learn about the latest in the industry without having to pay load of money.


The membership is free; the Conferences will cost 1000 SEK + tax (SEK 1250:-)

The focus is to hire Industry Leading speakers to our Conferences that will bring us the latest methods and techniques.

There will be 2 Conferences per year, and from 2017 we will add educations to the services.

We will have sponsors that will be presenting their products and services in the mingling area on the Conferences.


Another goal is to create a networking Environment where testers can openly speak about their trade and gather knowledge over the Company borders.

We also want to start a “chat” or forum where testers can ask questions and get help fast from specialists.

All new free ebooks about our area will be stored for everyone to read.
