The International Conference “Quality and Dependability” CCF 2012

The beginning of September 2012 brings for your attention a prestigious international event which does not have to miss from the agenda of every Romanian manager or specialist. Now at the 13th edition, this scientific reunion will take place at Neptun, one of the most elegant and luxurious Romanian sea resorts, placed in an area of relatively rich vegetation, the forest Comorova, at the Black Sea.

The event will take place – according to the usual periodicity – between the 5th and the 7th of September 2012 at Doina Complex, and will be organized by The Romanian Society for Quality Assurance, in cooperation with several national and international organizations in the field. The approached themes bring to your attention information, trends, ideas and concepts essential for the functional market economy.

The potential authors should consider, when elaborating the papers, that within CCF 2012 all sides will be approached: engineering, social-technical, managerial, economic, legal, etc. and the implications of quality and dependability (reliability, maintainability, safety, etc.). Consequently, various views, including the polemic ones, concerning the engineering, management and certification, dependability, etc. are welcome at CCF 2012. The organizers plan several debates and ‘round tables’ on controversial aspects of this inter-disciplinary field.

The conference’s orienting topics, presented hereafter, are aimed at reflecting both the evolutions, opportunities and the problems and challenges in the field of quality for the Romanian society and economy at this beginning of the millennium, under particular conditions of the global crisis: how can the quality, as a main factor of competitiveness, rescue and safeguard, and the role of a management system for a company in crisis conditions etc. Through its international character and, therefore, through the participation of well-known professionals in the field (mainly from EU countries), CCF 2012 may be considered as a real benchmark and ‘moment of truth’ for Romanian organizations and professionals: where we are in comparison to other European countries in terms of research, education, management and legislation in the field of quality and dependability and what are the trends.
