The International Conference “Quality and Dependability” CCF 2014

The 14th edition of the most important scientific reunion in the field that takes place in Romania, The International Conference “Quality and Dependability” CCF 2014 will be held – as periodicity already established – between the 18th-19th of September 2014  in the beautiful landscape of the Romanian ‘pearl’ of the Carpathians, Sinaia resort, in the elegant halls of Hotel Palace. The International Conference on Quality and Dependability – CCF 2014 is organized by the association Romanian Society for Quality Assurance, in cooperation with several national and international organizations in the field, under the scientific umbrella of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers – IEEE.

Authors should take into account when preparing the CCF 2014 works that can be addressed all sides: engineering, socio-technical, managerial, economic, legal and implications for quality and safety in operation (reliability, maintainability, availability, security, etc.). Consequently, the different points of view, including the polemic on engineering, management and quality certification and operational safety are welcome in the CCF in 2014, organizers taking into consideration the organization of more debates and “round tables” on some controversial aspects of this interdisciplinary field of great interest.

The conference’s orienting topics – presented here – are aimed at reflecting progress, opportunities, and problems and challenges in the field of quality Romanian society and economy at the beginning of this millennium, the particular conditions of global economic crisis: how can quality contribute as the main factor of competitiveness – to overcoming the crisis, safeguarding the role of the management of a company in crisis conditions, etc..
