Software Quality has been a major challenge throughout Information Technology projects. Whether it is in software development, in software integration or whether it is in the implementation or customization of shrink-wrapped software, quality is regarded as a major issue. In the last couple of decades, much software engineering research has focused on standards, methodologies and techniques for improving software quality, measuring software quality and software quality assurance. Most of this research is focused on the internal/development view of quality. More recent studies have made attempts to understand the stakeholder view of quality. With globalization, many new challenges affect software quality. Not only do we need to understand the many stakeholder views of quality, we now need to consider the cultural issues, and the outsourcing issues. The Seventh Workshop on Software Quality aims to bring together academic, industrial and commercial communities interested in software quality topics to discuss the different technologies being defined and used in the software quality area.
