Call For Papers

Starting from 2015, the SERE conference (International Conference on Software Security and Reliability) and the QSIC conference (International Conference on Quality Software) will be combined as a single conference QRS, with Q representing Quality, R for Reliability, and S for Security. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Reliability Society. It draws engineers and scientists from both industry and academia to present their on-going work, relate their research outcomes and experiences, and discuss the best and most efficient techniques for the development of reliable, secure, and trustworthy systems. This presents an excellent opportunity for the academic community to become more aware of subject areas critical to the software industry, as practitioners bring their needs to the table. The 2015 conference will be held from August 3 to 5 in Vancouver, Canada.

Submit original manuscripts (not published or considered elsewhere) with a maximum of ten pages (regular and workshop papers), six pages (Student Doctoral Program), and two pages (Fast Abstract Track). Each paper should include a title, and the name and affiliation of each author. Except for the Fast Abstract Track, each submission should also include a 150-word abstract and up to 6 keywords. The format of your submission must follow the guidelines for IEEE conference proceedings. The first author of a Student Doctoral Program submission must be a student. At least one Best Paper Award with a cash prize will be presented. Detailed instructions for paper submission can be found at

The proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Accepted papers will also be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore and to other abstracting and indexing partners such as the Ei Compendex. Authors of selected best papers from the conference will be invited to submit an extended version to a special Journal issue.
