The International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology (QUATIC) is a leading scientific conference that gathers experts from industry and academia to exchange ideas and approaches regarding all quality aspects in ICT systems engineering and management. This forum seeks to foster lively discussion on how to further the state-of-the-art and define future directions, as well as to disseminate advanced new methods, techniques, and tools. QUATIC'2021 follows in the tradition of this conference, now in its 14th edition, invites practitioners and researchers to submit technical papers reporting original research and experience results in all topics and sub-fields of Quality in ICT process, product, and applications domains, as well as sharing practical studies.

QUATIC'2021 is coming to Faro, capital of Algarve, the well-known region in the south of Portugal. The University of Algarve, which will host this conference, is a young state university commemorating its 40th anniversary with around 8000 students and 700 academics.



The conference is organized into thematic tracks that serve as dedicated discussion venues on focused topics of interest. QUATIC 2021 offers an exciting set of tracks, mixing well-established traditional QUATIC topics and newly proposed tracks, covering break-through research challenges.

Authors should select the track that best suits their field:

- ICT Verification and Validation
- Safety, Security, and Privacy
- Process Modeling, Improvement and Assessment
- ICT Requirements Engineering
- Model-Driven Engineering
- Software Evolution
- Quality Aspects in Machine Learning, AI and Data Analytics
- Evidence-Based Software Quality Engineering
- Software Quality Education and Training
- Quality in Cyber-Physical Systems
- Quality Aspects in Quantum Computing
- PhD Symposium (SEDES)

The conference will also have an Industrial Day to foster the dissemination of best practices and to allow a lively discussion of hot topics and quality concerns in specific application domains. During the Industrial Day conference sponsors will share their knowledge and promote hands-on contact with new software tools.



As with previous years, QUATIC'2021 proceedings will be published in a volume of Springer CCIS Series (Communications in Computer and Information Science). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for inclusion in ISI Proceedings. The organizers are presently negotiating a journal special issue for extended versions of the best papers. In 2020 there was an associated special issue with the Software Quality Journal.
