About GQAC

Main Theme:
 〜Toward Next Generation〜

We collected themes of the conference from the JSQA members among which we chose the theme “Toward Next Generation” considering the themes of the first and second GQAC conferences. The GQAC ship that launched out to sea bearing the heritage of “Committed to Quality Assurance” (which was the theme of the 1stGQAC in 2005) and also “The Route to Enlightenment” (which was the theme of the 2nd GQAC in 2008) will be moved forward to the theme of the 3rdGQAC, “Toward Next Generation”.

About Fan Logo:

A folding fan (ougi or sensu in Japanese) was originated in Kyoto. It is regarded as an auspicious object because its shape spreads from the pivot point toward many directions.  It is also regarded as a symbol of expansion and prosperity.
