Welcome to QUATIC 2010

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. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


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.
