 QUATIC'2016 - Last 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


- Quality Aspects in Requirements Engineering (chair: Maria Lencastre,
Univ. Pernanbuco)

- Quality Aspects in Model Driven Engineering (chair: Marjan Mernik, Univ.

- 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

- Quality Aspects in Safety Critical Systems (chair: Marion Lepmets,
Dundalk IT)

- Quality Aspects in Service Management (chair: Natalia Kryvinska, Univ.



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. Two keynotes are already confirmed, to
be delivered by 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.
