  • SEDES - Software Engineering Doctoral Consortium
  • TEQUA - The Teaching of Quality in Information and Communication Technology Education Programs


SEDES - Software Engineering Doctoral Consortium (Simpósio para Estudantes de Doutoramento de Engenharia de Software)

The goal of this doctoral consortium is to provide software engineering PhD students with an environment in which they can present and discuss their work, receive feedback and suggestions from faculty and peers, and network with other researchers in the field.

The SEDES (Simpósio para Estudantes de Doutoramento de Engenharia de Software) had its first edition in 2004. The second edition will take place in 2007, in close coordination with the 6th International  Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology QUATIC 2007

Contact: Paulo Rupino da Cunha, Universidade de Coimbra


TEQUA - The Teaching of Quality in Information and Communication Technology Education Programs


Competitiveness depends among other factors on Quality. Nowadays, software organizations and society in general have a clear concern about Quality on information and communication technology (ICT), from which we all are depending more each time. To give reply to these requirements, the institutions of higher education have incorporated topics about Quality on their curricula. This task has been facilitated through the existence of curricula and international bodies of knowledge of reference on the ICT area (for example, the SWEBOK and the CC ACM), that include the subject of Quality.

Although Quality on ITC is a well systemized theme and very clearly described on those documents, Quality is a subject with multiple facets (e.g., technological, human and organisational, that presents itself at several interdependent levels (e.g., process and product) and that is transversal to the various activities of the information and communication systems life cycle.

It is not therefore to strange that some questions persist on the education of Quality on ICT, as for example, to know which topics should be taught, when they should be taught (where and in what cycle), how they should be taught (e.g., in what subjects, concentrated or distributed, explicit or implicit) and in what ways can we promote early on students a sensibility for quality and a culture of Quality.



This workshop intends to ponder about the current situation and to find strong guidelines for the education of quality in the TIC courses, having in account the most important international references and good practices, as well the market needs. 



- Experiences of use of international norms and good practices;

- Current situation of quality teaching at ICT courses and market needs;

- Guidelines (what, when and how) for the teaching of quality on ICT courses.


Participation and Structure:

Workshop participation is by invitation. Papers should be sent to one of the chairs.

Authors will be asked to adequate their papers for public distribution. Each participant will do a short presentation, followed by a period of discussion. Afterwards, participants will elaborate the main workshop conclusions.


Workshop Chairs:

- João Pascoal Faria (FEUP)

- Alberto Sampaio (ISEP)
