Prefácio e Organização
On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to extend our warmest welcome to the 18th Brazilian Symposium on Software Quality (SBQS 2019) in Fortaleza, the “Land of Light”. The SBQS is the main Brazilian forum devoted to Software Quality. Software quality manifests in two complementary and dependent aspects: Process Quality and Product Quality. Due to the current dependence on software and value-added services, research on software quality and its application to products and services is both a necessity and a differential to provide value to organizations and their business.
