The International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology (QUATIC) serves as 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 and to provide practical studies in varying contexts.

Call for Participation

We invite researchers and practitioners to participate in this conference, and join us at the beautiful city of Lisbon in September!

The Conference Program is organized on a series of Thematic Tracks, each corresponding to a specific topic of interest.To foster the dissemination of best practices in industry and to allow a lively discussion of hot topics and quality concerns we will have a dedicated Industrial Track. The doctoral consortium of Portuguese software engineering students (SEDES) will provide an opportunity for doctoral students to present and discuss their thesis work with faculty and peers and network with other researchers in the field. Finally, Tutorials will provide an excellent opportunity for practitioners to meet and learn with world class experts.

Proceedings publication

As in the previous edition, papers accepted at the Thematic Tracks will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS), submitted for archiving in the IEEE Digital Library, and submitted for indexing in ISI Web of Science, SCOPUS, ACM Portal, DBLP and DOI System. During the closing session of QUATIC’2012, awards will be given to the best papers presented during the meeting. Authors of selected papers presented in the Main Track, will be invited to submit extended and improved versions to be published in a peer-reviewed journal. Papers and other presentation materials accepted for the Industrial Track will be published online at the conference website as well as in the Electronic Proceedings of the QUATIC’2012 Industrial Track (with ISBN edited by ACS03).
