research and brings together the best
interdisciplinary academic research and
management practice. The QUIS symposium

symposium takes a broad interdisciplinary
and international view of service excellence
in management. The topics are representative
but not exclusive themes.

with selected papers from QUIS13 will be
published in Journal of Service Management
