About the Workshop

The main goal of SQAMIA workshop series is to provide a forum for presentation, discussion and dissemination of the scientific findings in the area of software quality, and the establishment and improvement of interaction and cooperation between scientists and young researchers from the region and beyond. It is organized by SQAMIA Initiative and the workshop especially welcomes position papers, papers describing the work-in-progress, tool demonstration papers, technical reports or other papers that would provoke discussions.

SQAMIA 2019 is the 8th Workshop in the series, and a continuation of the successful events held in previous years.

The first workshop SQAMIA 2012 was organized within the 5th Balkan Conference in Informatics (BCI 2012) and was closely followed by SQAMIA 2013 also organized in Novi Sad, now as a standalone event in intention to become traditional meeting of the scientists and practitioners in the field of software quality. Continuing this tradition SQAMIA 2014 was held in Lovran, Croatia, SQAMIA 2015 in Maribor, Slovenia and SQAMIA 2016 in Budapest, Hungary. SQAMIA 2017 and SQAMIA 2018 were both held in Serbia, in Belgrade and Novi Sad respectfully.

The workshop welcomes papers addressing research on all four mentioned aspects (Analysis, Monitoring, Improvement, and Applications) of dealing with the quality of software. Position papers, papers describing the work-in-progress, tool demonstration papers, technical reports or other papers that would provoke discussions are especially welcome.
