 Final prog: Objective Software Quality Symposium 1995

Dear Colleague,

in this email is contained the **final** **programme** of the Symposium
Objective Quality 1995, May 29-31 (2nd Symposium on Software Quality
Techniques and Acquisition Criteria) with the details of the **associated**
**events** of IBM, Olivetti and UNINFO.  In the Symposium the results
produced from the most important European Projects in field of quality and
quality process assessment and improvement will be presented (e.g., ESSI
experiences of university/research centers (CNR-IEI, CQ_ware-CESVIT,
Politecnico di Torino, QualityLab, Scuola Superiore G.  Reiss Romoli,
Tecnopolis CSATA, Universita' di Firenze, University of Lancaster,
University of Oulu, etc.), and those of European industries (ALENIA, ARTIS,
BULL, Cap Volmac, Data Management, ENEL, ETNOTEAM, FIAT, ISMES, Objectif
Tecnologie, SIA, SIEMENS, SINTEF DELAB, TechForce BV, etc.).

With the symposium additional three events have also been organized.  The
first two are devoted to the presentation of the IBM and Olivetti
activities, respectively, in the field of quality.  The latter concerns to
the presentation of the UNINFO (Italian National Body of ISO) standards.
The mixture of research institutes, companies and European projects make the
symposium a good occasion.  Thus, I trust that researchers and practitioners
will find several opportunities for exchanging their ideas and for tracking
the path to reach the objective of quality.

Please accept my apologies about the reception of multiple instances of
this note, while if you find this event interesting for you of for your
colleagues please consider participating as well as to redistribute this
information to your colleagues, and on mailing list.

I hope to see you in Florence next May.
