QuASoQ 2015

3rd International Workshop on Quantitative Approaches to Software Quality

in conjunction with the 22nd Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC 2015)
New Delhi, India - 1st December 2015


Goals of the Workshop

The workshop aims at gathering together researchers and practitioners to discuss new approaches and experiences in the application of state of the art techniques to measure, assess and evaluate the quality of both software systems and software development processes.

Software development organizations are always forced to produce software in the "required" quality. Hence, quality specification and quality assurance are crucial. Although there are lots of approaches to deal with quantitative quality management, it is still challenging to choose a suitable set of techniques that best fit to the specific project and organizations constraints. Moreover, standards like CMMI require to set up and apply quantitative methods to monitor and improve development processes.

Even though approaches, methods, and techniques are known for quite some time now little effort has been spent on the exchange on the real world problems with quantitative approaches. For example, only limited research has been devoted to the setup and maintenance of large scale measurement systems in industrial environments.

Hence, one main goal of the workshop is to exchange experience, present new promising approaches and to discuss how to set up, organize, and maintain quantitative approaches to software quality.
