Interested authors should submit a (maximum) two-page document with the following information:
Reference to the journal publication: Paper title, authors, extended abstract of the work described in the paper (could be longer than the original paper abstract) and a link to the original journal paper at the journal’s Website (or to a preprint version if the published paper is still unavailable).
Proof of acceptance date. Either the reference to the journal publication itself if the acceptance date appears in the published version of the paper, or the acceptance email if the link to the published paper is still unavailable or if the published version does not list the acceptance date.
Justification that the paper fulfills the criteria of a journal-first paper (see listed criteria above).
Journal-first papers must be submitted following the conference submission procedure.
Since all papers have already been reviewed and accepted by the journals, they will not be reviewed again for technical content. Papers will be selected based on the eligibility for journal-first, and relevance to the conference. In the case that the number of submissions received exceeds the number of talks allowed by the conference schedule, priority will be given to the papers that best fit the conference themes and technical program. Papers coming from known predatory journals will be excluded.
Every journal-first paper is expected to be presented by one of its authors according to the general registration conditions (to appear in due time). Failure to present the paper might result in exclusion from future journal-first programs at QUATIC and/or the involved journal.
The journal-first papers will not be part of the QUATIC proceedings as they have already been published in the respective journals. However, the presentations will appear in the conference program. In addition, we expect the authors to make a pre-print of the paper available to QUATIC (within the limits of existing copyright agreements) so that interested participants can easily access it.
