The 8th 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 25 high-quality submissions, which were peer-reviewed by three or more reviewers. Out of these submissions, the editors selected five contributions as full papers, with an acceptance rate of 20%. Further, nine 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.

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 “The Future of Systems- and Software Development”:
+ Software Engineering Processes and Process Modelling
+ Requirements Engineering
+ Software Architecture
+ Software Estimation and Development
+ Software Testing
+ E-Government Applications
