About QUATIC'2004

Heading towards its 5th edition, QUATIC is considered a reference event in what concerns the discussion and fostering of Quality in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). The event is promoted by the Commission for Quality in ICTs (CS03). CS03 operates in the realm of Instituto Português Qualidade (IPQ) and is formed by a considerable number of public and private organizations with activities in ICTs.

The previous QUATIC meetings took place in 1994 and 1995 (Lisbon), 1998 (Guimarães) and 2001 (Lisbon). QUATIC'2004 will consolidate this initiative and, once again, join the industry and academia communities to foster the cross-fertilization of experiences and knowledge among them, thus providing a rewarding learning experience to all the participants and, through them, to their organizations.

In the 2001 edition, QUATIC had its first step towards becoming an international event, by allowing the submission of communications both in Portuguese and in Spanish. This innovation led to a considerable participation of delegates from Spain and Latin America, in particular from Brasil. In the 2004 edition, QUATIC will undergo its 2nd and final internationalization phase, by opening the event to communications in English, as well.

Another interesting characteristic of this year's event and its internationalization is the proximity with a major international conference: UML'2004. UML'2004 will take place in Portugal, on the week just before QUATIC'2004. This will allow participants coming from abroad to attend both conferences with just one trip.
