This page provides links to various professional publications, presentations, and workshops I have been involved with over my software development career.  The first four stem from my M.A.Sc. work at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering of the University of Toronto in the mid 1980s.  The remainder stem from the period of time at IBM where I was heavily involved in the software test and globalization communities.   The links point to the online reference to the publication, and do not necessarily contain the entire article.
