Call For Papers

Quality assurance is a critical component at every stage in the
development of a software system, affecting requirements elicitation,
architecture and design, and implementation. The quality of the
artifacts generated in these stages will significantly influence
the rest of the system. Once again, QSIC 2014 will maintain a
theme focused on the Engineering of Quality Systems, consisting
of three major research domains:

* the quality assurance of artifacts generated during software
development, such as program code and design documents;
* the definition and exploration of quality relationships among
different software development phases, such as the impact that
the quality of requirements might have on the quality of the
derived software architecture; and
* finally the investigation of how codification and communication
of knowledge affects software quality.

Keynote Speakers
* Professor Way Kuo
President, City University of Hong Kong
Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Transactions on Reliability
Member of US National Academy of Engineering

* Dr. Jeff Voas
NIST - National Institute of Standards and Technology
IEEE Fellow
2014 Gold Medal from the US Secretary of Commerce

Topics of Interest
* Software testing: automation, conformance, strategies, tools,
standards, economics, performance and robustness, processes
and standards
* Software quality: management and assurance, measurement and
benchmarking, review, inspection and walkthrough,

Paper Submission
All submissions must be in English and the author's original
work that has not been published and/or submitted for
consideration for publication anywhere else. The papers must
be in IEEE Conference Proceedings format with no more than
10 pages for a regular paper and no more than 6 pages
for a short paper.

Submissions must be in PDF format and uploaded to the
conference submission website before the deadline date.
Each submission will be reviewed by three PC members.
Paper selection is based on the originality, technical
contribution, presentation, and relevance to QSIC.
Refer to the conference website for detailed guidelines.

Important Dates
*June 1, 2014: Deadline for paper submission*
July 20, 2014: Notification to authors
August 1, 2014: Deadline for camera-ready versions
October 2-3, 2014 QSIC 2014 conference

Conference Proceedings
The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer
Society Conference Publishing Services. Papers will also be
submitted to the IEEE Xplore database and indexed by all the
abstracting and indexing partners (such as the EI Compendex).

Special Journal Issue
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their articles to a special issue of
an international, respected, and SCI-indexed archival journal.

About Dallas
"Big D," as Dallas (the ninth-largest city in US) is called,
offers the quintessential Lone Star experience to those who
want it -- barbecue and steaks, cowboy boots, and rodeo shows.
It has the nation's largest Arts District in Downtown. It
is also the home of American Airlines with direct flights
to many cities in U.S., Europe, Asia, and Central and
South America.

Conference Organizers
