QSIC 2O1O: 10th International Conference on Quality Software July

14-15, 2010 Zhangjiajie, China



------ BACKGROUND --------------------------------------------------

Software is playing an ever-increasing role in our society. On the

other hand, software systems often fail to deliver as promised. It is

widely known that unresolved errors remain in many software systems

that we are using every day.


The QSIC series of conferences provide a forum to bring together

researchers and practitioners working towards improving the quality of

software. It focuses on innovative methodologies, techniques, tools,

management and applications in this challenging area, and exchange

ideas on them.


The preceding conferences in the series were held over four

continents, in Hong Kong; Dallas, USA; Braunschweig, Germany;

Melbourne, Australia; Beijing, China; Portland, Oregon, USA; Oxford,

UK; and Jeju, Korea. Since 2009, IEEE Reliability Society has been one

of the sponsors of the conference.


------ CALL FOR PAPERS ---------------------------------------------

QSIC 2010 will be held in Zhangjiajie, China, an UNESCO World Natural

Heritage famous for its magnificent views. It will be a two-day event

to be held on July 14-15, 2010.


QSIC 2010 will include the main conference and co-located workshops.

IEEE Computer Society Press will publish the conference proceedings

consisting of carefully reviewed manuscripts accepted by the program

committee. The QSIC series of conference had received overwhelming and

very positive response from academia and industry.


For every year, the top few articles among the accepted articles were

also published, in their extended form, in a special issue of an

international, respectful and SCI-indexed archival journal.
