The 9th 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 years a growing number of scientific contributions were submitted to the SWQD symposium. Starting in 2012 the SWQD symposium included a dedicated scientific program published in scientific proceedings. For the sixth year we received an overall number of 21 high-quality submissions from researchers across Europe which were each peer-reviewed by 3 or more reviewers. Out of these submissions, the editors selected 4 contributions as full papers, an acceptance rate of 19%. Further, 7 short papers, which represent promising research directions, were accepted to spark discussions between researchers and practitioners at the conference.

Main topics from academia and industry focused on Systems and Software Quality Management Methods, Improvements of Software Development Methods and Processes, Latest trends and emerging topics in Software Quality, and Testing and Software Quality Assurance.
This book is structured according to the sessions of the scientific program following the guiding conference topic ‚ÄúComplexity and Challenges of Software Engineering in Emerging Technologies‚ÄĚ:

+ Model-Driven Development and Configuration Management
+ Software Development and Quality Assurance
+ Software Quality Assurance in Industry
+ Crowdsourcing in Software Engineering
+ Software Testing and Traceability
+ Process Improvement
