From: QUATIC Organizing Committee <quatic2010@c...>
Subject: QUATIC'2010_conference_Call_for_Papers
Dear Moderator of the “” mailing list,


Please read through before taking your decision on the enclosed posting. I
am a professor at the Lisbon New University in Portugal and I am currently
serving the community as Program Chair of the QUATIC’2010 conference. I came
across your mailing list in SEWORLD which I also subscribe. If your list
appeared in SEWORLD that is because your members have an interest in
Computer Science in general, and probably in Software Engineering, in
particular. The QUATIC conference series (this is the 7th edition) is
organized in association with the IEEE and deals mainly with how QUALITY is
being dealt in several areas of Computer Science research. Since QUALITY is
a crosscutting concern in all research areas, it is very likely that the
members of the “” mailing list will
enjoy receiving the enclosed call for papers.


Thank you for reading this through. I sincerely hope you authorize this


Best regards




Fernando Brito e Abreu, Ph.D.

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


As in the  <>
previous edition, papers accepted at this conference will be published by
the IEEE Computer Society Press (Los Alamitos, California, USA). QUATIC
proceedings will be indexed by the
IEEE Digital Library,
K%40Eke4&search_mode=GeneralSearch> ISI Web of Science,
g&CFID=68829815&CFTOKEN=38220940> ACM Portal,
<> DBLP and  <>
DOI System. During the closing session of QUATIC’2010, awards will be given
to the best papers presented during the meeting. Authors of selected papers
will be invited to submit extended versions to be published in a special
edition of the  <> ASQ Software Quality
Professional Journal.


We invite you to submit a paper to this conference and join us at Porto, a
UNESCO World Heritage center and home of the famous Port Wine. The
conference is organized on a series of tracks, each one around a specific
topic. Please follow the links below to get additional information.

To foster the dissemination of best practices in industry, to allow a lively
discussion of hot topics, to have hands-on contact with new tools, to gather
around informal discussion groups (aka
birds-of-a-feather) on subjects suggested by the conference participants
themselves and also to allow conference sponsors to spread their message, we
will have a dedicated
Industrial Track, that will run in parallel with the Main Track.



Paper submissions:      11 April 2010

Authors’ notification:  5 May 2010

Camera-ready:          6 June 2010


Note: Although the submission of the abstract is not mandatory, authors will
be able to get some preliminary feedback from the PC committee if their
proposed contents fall outside the scope of the conference thematic tracks.
