QUATIC 2021: International Conference on the Quality of Information and
Communications Technology

University of Algarve, Faro, Portugal

September, 8-11, 2021

Conference website: https://2021.quatic.org/


The International Conference on the Quality of Information and
Communications Technology (QUATIC) is a leading scientific conference that
gathers experts from industry and academia to exchange ideas and approaches
regarding all quality aspects in ICT systems engineering and management.
This forum seeks to foster lively discussion on how to further the
state-of-the-art and define future directions, as well as to disseminate
advanced new methods, techniques, and tools. QUATIC'2021 follows in the
tradition of this conference, now in its 14th edition, invites
practitioners and researchers to submit technical papers reporting original
research and experience results in all topics and sub-fields of Quality in
ICT process, product, and applications domains, as well as sharing
practical studies.

QUATIC'2021 is coming to Faro, capital of Algarve, the well-known region in
the south of Portugal. The University of Algarve, which will host this
conference, is a young state university commemorating its 40th anniversary
with around 8000 students and 700 academics.



The conference is organized into thematic tracks that serve as dedicated
discussion venues on focused topics of interest. QUATIC 2021 offers an
exciting set of tracks, mixing well-established traditional QUATIC topics
and newly proposed tracks, covering break-through research challenges.

Authors should select the track that best suits their field:
·        ICT Verification and Validation
·        Safety, Security, and Privacy
·        Process Modeling, Improvement and Assessment
·        ICT Requirements Engineering
·        Model-Driven Engineering
·        Software Evolution
·        Quality Aspects in Machine Learning, AI and Data Analytics
·        Evidence-Based Software Quality Engineering
·        Software Quality Education and Training
·        Quality in Cyber-Physical Systems
·        Quality Aspects in Quantum Computing
·        PhD Symposium (SEDES)

The conference will also have an Industrial 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 Industrial Day
conference sponsors will share their knowledge and promote hands-on contact
with new software tools.



As with previous years, QUATIC'2021 proceedings will be published in a
volume of Springer CCIS Series (Communications in Computer and Information
Science). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex,
Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for
inclusion in ISI Proceedings. The organizers are presently negotiating a
journal special issue for extended versions of the best papers. In
2020 there was an associated special issue with the Software Quality
