The 7th Software Quality Days (SWQD) conference and tools fair brought together researchers and practitioners from business, industry, and academia working on quality assurance and quality management for software engineering and information technology. The SWQD conference is one of the largest software quality conferences in Europe.

Over the past few years a growing number of scientific contributions have been submitted to the SWQD symposium. In total we received from researchers across Europe 13 high-quality submissions, which were peer-reviewed by three or more reviewers. Out of these submissions, the editors selected four contributions as full papers, with an acceptance rate of 31%. Further, four short papers, which represent promising research directions, were accepted to spark discussions between researchers and practitioners at the conference. All accepted papers were published in the scientific proceedings by Springer LNBIP (find the proceedings online at Springerlink).

Main topics from academia and industry were focused on systems and software quality management methods, improvements of software development methods and processes, the latest trends in software quality, and testing and software quality assurance.

The sessions of the scientific program followed the guiding conference topic “Software and Systems Quality in Distributed and Mobile Environments”:
+ Risk Management and Inspection
+ Change Impact Analysis and Systems Testing
+ Software and Systems Architecture
