                           CALL FOR PAPERS


9th International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology

              Guimarães, Portugal, 23 to 26 September 2014


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.
We invite researchers and practitioners to submit a paper to this conference, and join us in Portugal, in the beautiful and historic city of Guimarães, in September.
The conference program is organized on a series of Thematic Tracks, each corresponding to a specific topic of interest:

- ICT Verification and Validation

- ICT Process Improvement and Assessment

- Quality in ICT Requirements Engineering

- Quality in Agile Methods

- Evidence-Based Software Quality Engineering

- Quality in Web Engineering

- Quality in IT Service Management

- Quality in Technology Enhanced Learning

- Quality in Model Driven Engineering

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.

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’2014, awards will be given to the best papers presented during the meeting. Authors of selected papers presented in the Main Track, will be invited to submit extended and improved versions to be published in Software Quality Professional, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Society for Quality.
