*** Submission Extended to Jan 4, 2010 ***

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.

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. For QSIC 2010, authors of selected
papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their articles to a
special issue of Software: Practice and Experience.

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

• Software testing: automation, conformance, strategies, tools, standards,
economics, performance and robustness, processes and standards

• Software quality: management and assurance, measurement and benchmarking,
review, inspection and walkthrough, reliability, safety and security

• Methods and tools: design tools, testing tools, information systems
engineering, quality tools

• Evaluation of software products and components: static and dynamic analysis,
validation and verification

• Information and knowledge management: economics of software quality,
knowledge engineering

• Formal methods: program analysis, model checking, model construction,
formal process models

• Component software and reuse: requirements engineering, software architecture,
middleware and application servers, reflective systems

• Emerging technology: pervasive computing, service oriented computing, grid
software, cloud computing, intelligent systems

• Applications: component-based systems, digital libraries, distributed systems,
e-commerce, embedded systems, enterprise applications,
information systems, multimedia, Web-based systems, safety
critical systems

All submissions must be in English and the author's original work that have not
been published and/or submitted for consideration of publication anywhere else.
The papers must be in IEEE Conference Proceedings format with no more than 10 pages
for a long paper and no more than 6 pages for a short paper. Submissions must be in
PDF format and uploaded to the conference website before the deadline date.

The submission website is .

Please refer to the conference website (
