Welcome to ICQCC 2013 START YOUR INTERNET QCC Activities
It is our great honor to hold the 2013 International Convention on QC Circles (ICQCC 2013 Taipei). The 4-day convention will take place in the Taipei International Convention Center from 2013/10/22 to 2013/10/25.
The annual convention is a major event in the quality control circle (QCC). People from the QCC around the world, sponsors of activities from the QCC, and people who would like to know more about it can all get together in the convention to learn and discuss with each other. With the participation of 13 member states, the convention has been held once a year every year since 1976. The convention to be held in 2013 is the 38th annual convention. With all these activities held over the past decades, the achievements will definitely be outstanding.
The QCC activities have been held in Taiwan for over 40 years. The TQM is based on these activities. For a long time, QCC activities have been commonly and deeply rooted in enterprises’ work places in Taiwan, especially in medical institutions. They have been a great help to enterprises and played an important role in the economic growth of Taiwan.
Taiwan has been actively participating in all kinds of activities from other International Conventions on QC Circles. The 1977, 1980, 1983, 1988, and 2001 Conventions were held in Taiwan. In 2013, the Convention will once again return to Taiwan, sponsored by the Association of Pioneer Quality Control Research.
The topic of the 2013 International Convention on QC Circles is “Continuing Implementation of QCC Activities, Moving toward a Brighter Future for the World!”. It is expected that discussions during the Convention will improve the standards of the QCC and contribute to the QCC activities around the world.
We sincerely invite you to participate in the 2013 International Convention on QC Circles. There will be reports of outstanding achievements in the QCC, sharing of successful stories, and presentations of relevant theses. We look forward to your participation and sharing at the convention. Thank you!
