and SQ 2009 in ISCIS 2009 (in Middle East Technical University North Cyprus Campus, Cyprus), the Tenth International 
Symposium on Software Quality (ISSQ 2019) will be held in conjunction with the 2019 International Conference on 
Computational Science and Applications (ICCSA 2018), is scheduled  to be held during July 5 - 8, 2021 in Cagliari,Italy
in collaboration with the University of Cagliari, Italy.

Submission deadline: March 18, 2021. 

About the Workshop and Topics 

This symposium extends discussion of software quality issues in the modern software development processes. It covers all the aspects of 
process and product quality, quality assurance and standards, quality planning, quality control and software quality challenges.
It also covers the frontier issues and trends for achieving the quality objectives. It includes quality management process, role of
software metrics, predictor metrics and control metrics, role of measurement in accessing the quality and limitations. 

Topics include (related to quality issues in software, software applications in any realted area-cloud, agile, IoT, Big data, smart applications) 
but not limited to: 

1. Software development fundamentals, 
2. Extreme Programming (XP), Agile, Scrum, 
3. Software requirements techniques, 
4. Software testing & QA fundamentals, 
5. Software testing models and approaches, 
6. Software testing tools and frameworks, 
7. Software test design, 
8. Types of software maintenance, 
9. Software maintenance process models, 
10. Software maintenance standards, 
11. Software maintenance tools 
12. Software Reviews (SR) 
13. Software Metrics (SM) 
14. Software Process Assessment (SPA) 
15. Software Process Improvement (SPI) 
16. Software Standardization and Certification 

ISSQ: 2021 invites you to submit your work that describes original and significant contribution in all above mentioned area of 
software engineering processes. The paper submitted to ISSQ 2020 must not be submitted elsewhere either in conference or journal.
Papers selected after peer review will be included in the conference proceedings (after registration) and presented virtually  
at the conference. 


All contributions will be peer reviewed and will be judged on their quality and relevance. The accepted papers for SQ 2021 will 
be published in Proceedings of ICCSA by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Please note that one of the authors 
of the accepted paper must register for the conference. Extended and modified version of all accepted paper are invited to 
publish in various journals (all SCIE/Web of Science/SCOPUS/ESCI indexed) including best papers in SCIE indexed Journal*. 

*A special issue of a SCIE Journal- Information Technology And Control(IF 0.707) is confirmed 
for best papers of the software engineering symposiums(SEPA & ISSQ) and workshop(TTSDP)@ICCSA 2020).


Please submit your paper through ICCSA 2021 conference web-site.
