13th International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology
Faro, Portugal, September 9-11 , 2020
Covid-19 Update (click to read)
Dear QUATIC Community Members,
First and foremost, we all very much hope you and your families are keeping safe and well.
We are closely following the rapidly changing events of the #Covid_19 epidemic. Our event is almost half a year away and we are hopeful the situation will be restored to normal by the time of the conference in September. Naturally, we and the whole QUATIC community need to think ahead. Therefore, on June 22, we will announce one of the following options:
- Run the conference in Faro as planned (our present hope)
- Run the conference online (at the planned time)
Springer proceedings will be the same in either event, as well as the invitations to the Software Quality Journal. In recognition that we are now going through worrying and turbulent times, we are extending the full paper submission deadline to April 27th, 2020.
Whatever conference decisions are made, the health, safety, and well-being of the QUATIC community is our highest priority.
Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns by email.
