Call For Papers

10th International Conference on the
Quality of Information and Communications Technology

Lisbon, Portugal, 6 to 9 September 2016

QUATIC has been 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, to provide evidence of best practices and report practical studies in varying contexts related to ICT Quality. You can find further information on QUATIC, namely regarding past editions, scientific impact, indexation and other highlights, on the conference series page at:


Deadline: May 15, 2016

Paper size: up to 6 pages, 2 columns, IEEE proceedings format.
(note: best papers will be awarded extra size, up to 10 pages in the camera-ready version)

QUATIC proceedings are published by IEEE CPS and we expect that, as in previous editions, they will be indexed by IEEEXplore, Scopus (Elsevier), ISI WoS (Thomson-Reuters), ACM Digital Library, and DBLP. The American Society for Quality has partnered with QUATIC in the publication of special issues in the Software Quality Professional journal.



The first part of the technical program will be organized on a series of Thematic Tracks, each corresponding to a specialized topic, whose program is selected by a program committee of experts on that topic, thus ensuring a focused review exercise that will provide an optimized feedback to authors and will guarantee the quality of the final program. These tracks will run in parallel in a workshop-like fashion and are the following:

- Quality Aspects in Requirements Engineering (chair: Maria Lencastre, Univ. Pernanbuco)
- Quality Aspects in Model Driven Engineering (chair: Marjan Mernik, Univ. Maribor)
- Quality Aspects in Agile Methods (chair: Joao M. Fernandes, U.Minho)
- Quality Aspects in Process Improvement and Assessment (chair: Karol Frühauf, INFOGEM)
- Quality Aspects in Verification and Validation (chair: Gianluca Mezzetti, Univ. Aarhus)
- Quality Aspects in Software Engineering using Evidence-Based Approaches (chair: Sheila Reinehr, UCPR)
- Quality Aspects in Big Data Systems (chair: Monica Wachowicz, Univ. New Brunswick)
- Quality Aspects in Safety Critical Systems (chair: Marion Lepmets, Dundalk IT)
- Quality Aspects in Service Management (chair: Natalia Kryvinska, Univ. Wien)


This track will occur after all technical tracks are over and will include keynote speeches and the presentation of the best papers from each track, so that all QUATIC participants can enjoy them. This track will also include lively panels on hot topics. Three keynotes are already confirmed, to be delivered by Bertrand Meyer, Joost Visser and Michaela Greiler.

Joost Visser is head of research at the Software Improvement Group (SIG) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, a consultancy company that audits software systems and provides advice on aspects such as how to reduce their maintenance cost or improve their energy efficiency. He is also a Professor of “Large-Scale Software Systems” at the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He recently co-authored the book "Building Maintainable Software – Ten Guidelines for Future-Proof Code”. His work on maintainability metrics is the most widely cited paper from all those ever presented at the QUATIC conference.

Michaela Greiler is a researcher at Microsoft, where she support product teams including Office, Windows, Exchange to optimize their software development processes. Michaela especially focuses on optimizing effectiveness of product-wide testing and code reviewing activities. Before working at Microsoft, Michaela developed several reverse engineering techniques and tools for large and complex software systems to help developers understand complex code, especially test code.



This parallel event will bring together Software Engineering PhD students to present and discuss their work with a panel of professors and experts on the field.

- Business Day

This event aims at fostering 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.
