QUATIC 2023 accepts the following types of contributions:
Research and experience papers (between 10 and 15 pages total). Research papers should describe novel and scientifically rigorous contributions to any aspect related to the quality of ICT systems. Experience papers should present original reports on relevant industrial case studies.
Innovative and exploratory papers (between 6 and 8 pages total). Papers in this category should describe new, unconventional approaches that fundamentally challenge established research directions and current state of practice, but which are at an early stage of investigation.
Journal-first papers (up to 1 page). Papers in this category should have been published for the first time in any top-notch journal, i.e., without any prior publication as workshop or conference paper. The papers should have been accepted for publication in 2022 or 2023
Authors should select the track that best suits their field for submitting their work.
HOW TO SUBMIT
All papers must conform with the Springer CCIS Format
Research papers must not exceed 15 pages, including figures, references, and appendices.
Innovative and exploratory papers must not exceed 8 pages.
Authors should submit through EasyChair a PDF version of their paper without names and affiliations, or other elements that allow the authors' identification, to guarantee a double-blind review process.
Authors of Journal-first papers should submit a one-page document in PDF that contains the authors, title, journal, doi and abstract of the paper. The authors should also explain in the paper the relevance to QUATIC using less than 500 words.
Submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the track's Program Committee.
Accepted research and exploratory papers will be included in the proceedings of QUATIC 2023, subject to one of the authors registering for the conference.
Journal-first papers will not appear in the QUATIC proceedings, but will be an integral part of the program and presented at the conference.
The iThenticate plagiarism checker will be used to verify submissions' originality.
Work without substantial new material or failing to follow length and formatting guidelines will be desk rejected and therefore will not be reviewed.
