Paper Submission


At the time of submission, all papers must conform to the Format and Submission Guideline set in advance by QRS 2019 or co-located workshops. All submissions must be in English and in PDF format. Submissions that do not comply with the above instructions will be rejected without review.

Each submission will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee and evaluated on originality, contribution, soundness, presentation and relatedness. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference.
