CSQA - Computer Supported Qualitative Analysis

Scope
WorldCist'17 - 5th World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies, to be held at Porto Santo Island, Madeira, Portugal, 11 - 13 April 2017, is a global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the several perspectives of Information Systems and Technologies. 
This workshop focusses on the fast growing area of computer supported qualitative analysis. It is intended to discuss research results and new trends on this area, including new qualitative research/analysis software packages and new features available on these software packages. Also of interest is the relation between qualitative and quantitative analysis and the computer support for developing mixed studies. Case studies and practical applications of computer supported qualitative analysis are also of interest with emphasis on those in the engineering, information systems and education areas. 
We invite authors to submit unpublished work to the Computer Supported Qualitative Analysis – CSQA2017. Authors are invited to contribute with research papers, case studies and demonstrations that present original scientific results, methodological aspects, concepts and approaches in the multidisciplinary field of Quality Analysis.
