Objective and Background

The quality of software has an important bearing on the financial and safety aspects in our daily lives. Unfortunately, software systems often fail to deliver according to promises. It is well known that there are still unresolved errors in many of the software systems that we are using every day. The Asia-Pacific region is far from being immune to these problems. The prime objective of the conference is to provide a forum to bring together researchers and practitioners to address this issue seriously.

As a major international forum for quality software in the Asia-Pacific region, APAQS 2000 was a great success. The conference attracted about 100 participants from various parts of the world. Sixty-six papers were submitted to APAQS 2000 from over twenty countries from both within and outside the Asia-Pacific region. Thirty-three quality papers were selected by an international program committee. The Proceedings of APAQS 2000 was published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

In addition, four selected papers were subsequently expanded and, after the usual rigorous review process, published in a Special Issue on Quality Software of the International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering.

Following the success of APAQS 2000, the conference will be held again on 10-11 December 2001 in Hong Kong.
