Paper Format

Format of your paper

Please use one of the following standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX and Word formats that are found here. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process, and all submissions must be done through EDAS.

Recall, that given the double-blind review process (except for the single-blind dataset & tools track), reviewers should not know the names of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves the anonymity of the authors.

  • Do not put the authors’ names or affiliations under the title.
  • Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors.
  • Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grants).
  • Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that submitted papers use the correct styles, fonts, etc. Paper submissions must be in PDF format. The PDF file should comply with the following requirements:

  • There must not be any password protection on the PDF file
  • All fonts must be embedded
  • The file must be ready for text search (i.e. CTRL-F can be used to find a common word in the text such as ‘Conclusion’)

All authors must proofread their PDF file prior to submission to ensure it is ready for publication if the paper is accepted. Authors should not rely on proof-reading the source document – please proofread the PDF file. The proceedings editors will contact authors of non-complying papers to obtain a replacement, to be submitted by a specified date. To ensure that there is no delay to conference proceedings, papers for which a replacement is not provided by the specified date, will be excluded from the proceedings.

Papers submitted to QoMEX 2019 should refer to peer-reviewed publications. References to non-peer-reviewed publications (including public repositories such as arXiv, Preprints, software and personal communications) should only be made if there is no peer-reviewed publication available, should be kept to a minimum, and should appear as footnotes in the text (i.e., not in the references list).
