Software today plays an imperative role in many systems, including service-oriented, mission, and safety-critical systems.
Software failures can result in catastrophic consequences directly or indirectly. Not only can they lead to property damage and financial loss, but they may cause serious injury or even loss of life. Preventing such failures is of paramount importance.
Quality, Reliability, and Security compliment each other, but cannot be replaced by one or another. With higher complexity, faster development, and less resources, it is a significant challenge for researchers and practitioners to produce high quality, reliable, and secure software at reduced cost.
The aim of this special issue is to gather the recent advances in improving software quality, reliability, and security, and explore the impact of using supporting tools on software development practices.
All submissions should be supported by appropriate arguments and validation through case studies, experiments, or systematic comparisons with other approaches already in practice.
We seek high-quality original submissions that have not been previously published and that are not under consideration for publication elsewhere, as well as extended versions of selected papers of the 19th IEEE International Conference on Software Quality, Reliability and Security (QRS 2019; http://qrs. techconf.org).
