QRS 2017
IEEE International Conference on
Software Quality, Reliability & Security
July 25 - 29
Prague, The Czech Republic

We are very pleased to announce that the 2017 IEEE
International Conference on Software Quality,
Reliability & Security (QRS 2017) will be held from
July 25 to 29 in Prague, the Czech Republic.

Since 2015, the SERE conference (IEEE International
Conference on Software Security and Reliability) and
the QSIC conference (IEEE International Conference on
Quality Software) have combined into one large
conference, QRS, with Q representing Quality,
R for Reliability, and S for Security. This conference
is sponsored by the IEEE Reliability Society.

This conference provides engineers and scientists from
both industry and academia a platform to present their
ongoing work, relate their research outcomes and
experiences, and discuss the best and most efficient
techniques for the development of reliable, secure, and
trustworthy systems. It also represents an excellent
opportunity for the academic community to become more
aware of subject areas critical to the software industry
as practitioners bring their needs to the table.

We cordially invite you to submit papers to QRS 2017.
Please refer to the following for more details.


Workshop proposals: January 15, 2017
Abstracts: March 1, 2017
Regular & Short papers: March 8, 2017
Workshop & Student Doctoral Program: April 1, 2017

Author notification: May 25, 2017

SPECIAL SECTION in IEEE Transactions on Reliability
Authors of selected best papers from the conference
will be invited to submit an extended version to a
special section of the IEEE Transactions on Reliability.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the
following subjects:

* Reliability, security, availability, and safety
of software systems
* Software testing, verification and validation
* Program debugging and comprehension
* Information and software assurance
* Fault tolerance for software reliability improvement
* Modeling, prediction, simulation, and evaluation
* Metrics, measurements, and analysis
* Secure and reliable storage
* Software penetration and protection
* Software vulnerabilities
* Formal methods
* Malware detection and analysis
* Intrusion detection and prevention
* Operating system security and reliability
* Mobile and smartphone applications
* Internet of things and cloud computing
* Information and knowledge management
* Benchmark, tools, and empirical studies

Submit original manuscripts (not published or considered
elsewhere) with a maximum of twelve pages (regular papers),
eight pages (short papers, workshop papers, and Student
Doctoral Program), and two pages (Fast Abstract Track).
Each paper should include a title and the name and affiliation
of each author. Except for the Fast Abstract Track, each
submission should also include a 150-word abstract and
up to 6 keywords. The format of your submission must follow
the guidelines for IEEE conference proceedings
The first author of a Student Doctoral Program submission
must be a student. At least one Best Paper Award with a cash
