Short Paper Submission

Submit your paper via EDAS:

Short Papers

Short papers must describe original and unpublished work. They are likely to present a smaller and more focused contribution than full papers that can benefit from the feedback that early exposure can provide. Short papers may be no longer than three (3) pages, including figures, tables, and references. Submit an anonymized version of the paper. Short papers submitted to the general and special session tracks will undergo a double-blind review process.

Submissions will be judged on suitability, originality, significance/contribution, the validity of the work, related work, thoroughness, replicability, presentation clarity. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three experts in the field. Final versions of accepted papers must take into account reviewers’ comments. Short papers will be presented as posters. They will be electronically archived as part of the Conference Proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.

The following examples may be helpful in understanding what type of papers could be suitable for short paper submission:

  • Work-in-progress or late-breaking results
  • A position paper or contribution that is pushing/challenging existing boundaries
  • A counter-example to an existing technique that helps to understand its limitations
  • Extensions or evaluations of existing methods or explorations of new methods
  • An interesting application nugget

Other Submission Policies

QoMEX 2019 requires each accepted paper to be presented by one of the authors in-person at the conference site according to the schedule published. One of the authors must register for the conference at one of the non-student rates offered and must register before the deadline given for author registration (see registration policy). Any paper accepted into the technical program, but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official proceedings archived on IEEE Xplore.

By submitting a manuscript, the authors guarantee that it is not previously published or under review elsewhere in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submission should be submitted during the review period to either a journal or a conference. If there are papers that may appear to violate any of these conditions, then it is the author’s responsibility to (a) cite these papers (preserving anonymity), (b) argue in the body of your paper why your paper is nontrivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (c) include anonymized versions of those papers with the submission.

Authors are allowed to submit manuscripts posted in institutional and public repositories (such as arXiv) to QoMEX 2019 for consideration if the authors hold all rights, including copyrights, for the manuscript. Authors are required to mention “submitted to QoMEX 2019” with any paper posted on public repositories (such as arXiv). When a paper is rejected for publication, the reference to the paper needs to be changed and all references to QoMEX should be removed. In case of an accept, following publication in the QoMEX conference proceedings, the reference should be updated to say “Proceedings of QoMEX”, and the DOI should be added. Moreover, all authors are required to always refer to the paper in the QoMEX proceedings, and not use the reference of the public repository.

Rejected full papers may be submitted as short paper.

Authors need to check in EDAS if the paper is submitted on the right track (database or regular paper) and if the paper is submitted to the right special session (regular paper or special session).
