Call for Papers

The 2016 IEEE International Conference on Software Quality,
Reliability & Security (QRS-2016)

Vienna, Austria, August 1-3, 2016

Sponsored by IEEE Reliability Society

Since 2015, the SERE conference (IEEE International Conference
on Software Security and Reliability) and the QSIC conference (IEEE
International Conference on Quality Software) have combined into
one large conference, QRS, with Q representing Quality, R for
Reliability, and S for Security, sponsored by the IEEE Reliability

This conference provides engineers and scientists from both industry
and academia a platform to present their ongoing work, relate their
research outcomes and experiences, and discuss the best and most
efficient techniques for the development of reliable, secure, and
trustworthy systems. It also represents 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

The 2016 QRS conference will be held from August 1st to 3rd
in Vienna, Austria.

Workshop proposals: January 15, 2016
Abstracts: April 8, 2016 (extended!)

Conference: August 1-3, 2016

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following

* Reliability, security, availability, and safety of software systems
* Software testing, verification and validation
* Program debugging and comprehension
* Information and software assurance
* Fault tolerance for software reliability improvement
* Modeling, prediction, simulation, and evaluation
* Metrics, measurements, and analysis
* Secure and reliable storage
* Software penetration and protection
* Software vulnerabilities
* Formal methods
* Malware detection and analysis
* Intrusion detection and prevention
* Operating system security and reliability
* Mobile and smartphone applications
* Internet of things and cloud computing
* Information and knowledge management
* Benchmark, tools, and empirical studies

Submit original manuscripts (not published or considered elsewhere)
with a maximum of twelve pages (regular papers), eight pages
(short papers, workshop papers, and 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. During the
last few years, SERE and QSIC have had special issues/sections with
IEEE Transactions on Reliability, Journal of Systems and Software,
Journal of Information and Technology, etc.
