Instructions for TQC authors

All submissions for talks must be made electronically through the online submission system EasyChair.

Submissions will be accepted up until March 20, 2018 in any timezone.

Please also have a look at the Call for Papers.

  • Conference track (talk + proceedings):

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work published elsewhere or submitted in parallel to a journal or any other conference/workshop that has proceedings. The length of the submission must be at most 15 pages excluding bibliography and appendices. The text must be in a single column format, use at least 11-point fonts, and have reasonable margins. The submission should begin with a title, a list of authors, and a short abstract. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions should be in PDF format.

The proceedings will be published by the Open Access LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics).

  • Workshop track (talk only):

Authors may submit a paper published elsewhere or an original manuscript. A Workshop Track submission must either follow the format guidelines for Conference track submissions, or if the submission has been accepted for publication elsewhere, the submission may consist in the manuscript in its accepted or published form. In all cases, information about previous publication or concurrent submission, if any, should be indicated on the first page of the submission. As in the conference track, submissions are expected to include sufficient detail to verify all proofs.

  • Poster track:

Poster submissions must either consist in a short summary (2-3 pages) of the work, or follow the guidelines from either of the tracks above.  Talk submissions that are not accepted will automatically be considered for the poster session. Authors of poster submissions made before the talk submission deadline will be notified by the decision notification date. A Late-Poster round allows for much later submissions (and notification) for posters only.

We recommend to use A0 format (841 x 1189 mm | 33.1 x 46.8 inches).

Limited financial support is available for student presenters. The selection process has now concluded and seven student speakers will be supported with a total of $10'000 AUD. We thank our sponsors who made this possible!
