QUATIC 2024 - 17th International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology

Pisa, Italy, September 11-13, 2024


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 2024, now in its 17th edition, will be hosted in Pisa, in the beautiful region of Tuscany in central Italy, straddling the Arno just before it empties into the Tyrrhenian Sea. 

QUATIC 2024 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. 

The conference is organized into thematic tracks that serve as dedicated discussion venues on focused topics of interest, mixing well-established traditional QUATIC topics and newly proposed tracks, covering breakthrough research challenges: 

The relevant topics specific to each track are available from the conference web site at 


QUATIC 2024 accepts the following types of contributions:

All papers must conform to the Springer CCIS Format and be submitted through the EasyChair link, selecting the track that best suits their field.

QUATIC 2024 will employ a double-blind review process. Authors of full and short papers should submit a PDF version of their paper without names and affiliations, or other elements that allow the authors' identification, to guarantee a double-blind review process. 

Submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the track's Program Committee. Work without substantial new material or failing to follow length and formatting guidelines will be desk rejected and therefore will not be reviewed. The iThenticate plagiarism checker will be used to verify submissions' originality.

Authors need to comply with Springer Nature Code of Conduct and QUATIC's Code of Ethical Conduct.


Accepted full and short papers will be included in the proceedings of QUATIC 2024, subject to one of the authors registering for the conference.

As with previous QUATIC editions, QUATIC 2024 proceedings will be included in a volume of the 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. 



Authors of the best papers from QUATIC 2024 will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to a Special Issue on Quality Assurance in ICT-based Systems to be published in the Elsevier Journal of Systems and Software
