Call for papers

The International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology (QUATIC) serves as a forum for disseminating advanced methods, techniques and tools for supporting quality approaches to ICT engineering and management. Practitioners and researchers are encouraged to exchange ideas and approaches on how to adopt a quality culture in ICT process and product improvement and to provide practical studies in varying contexts.

The conference considers the existence of several areas of interest that gather a set of related topics, organised around several perspectives of ICT Quality. Therefore, QUATIC conference program is organised on a series of Thematic Tracks, each corresponding to a specific topic of interest:

The conference will also have a Business Day to foster the dissemination of best practices and to allow a lively discussion of hot topics and quality concerns in specific application domains. During the Business Day conference sponsors will share their knowledge and promote hands-on contact with new tools.

Another event, SEDES, will bring together Software Engineering PhD students to present and discuss their work.

Proceedings publication

As in the previous editions, papers accepted at the Thematic Tracks will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS), submitted for archiving in the IEEE Digital Library, and submitted for indexing in ISI Web of Science, SCOPUS, ACM Portal, DBLP and DOI System. Authors of the best papers accepted in the Thematic Tracks will be invited to submit extended versions for presentation in the Main Track. During the closing session of QUATIC’2016, awards will be given to the best papers presented during the meeting.
