QoMEX 2013

Fifth International Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Experience

Author’s Paper Kit

Preliminary information (to be updated later).

The QoMEX 2013 paper submission and review process is being conducted in a manner similar to previous QoMEX conferences:

  • Authors who wish to participate in the conference will create documents consisting of a complete description of their ideas and applicable research results in a maximum of 6 pages (full papers) and 2 pages (short papers) submitted only in PDF format.
  • Submit the paper and copyright form electronically via the paper submission website. This paper submission must be submitted in final, publishable form before the submission deadline listed below.
  • Check the QoMEX 2013 website for the status of your paper.
  • Paper submissions will be peer-reviewed by experts selected by the conference committee for their demonstrated knowledge of particular topics. The progress and results of the review process will be posted on this website, and authors will also be notified of the review results by email.
  • Prepare a lecture or poster presentation following the guidelines included in this document.

The review process is being conducted entirely online. To make the review process easy for the reviewers, and to ensure that the paper submissions will be readable through the online review system, we ask that authors submit paper documents that are formatted according to the Paper Kit instructions included here.


The following style files and templates are available for users of LaTeX and Microsoft Word:

  • LaTeX style file with margin, page layout, font, etc. definitions: spconf.sty
  • BiBTeX style file with bibliography style definitions: IEEEbib.bst
  • LaTeX template file, an example of using the “spconf.sty” and “IEEEbib.bst” files above: Template.tex
  • PDF generated from the template file: Template
  • Sample strings.bib and refs.bib files.
  • Sample image1, image3 and image4 files, referenced in the LaTeX template.
  • Word 97/2000 Sample, a template of correct formatting and font use: WordTemplate

It is imperative that you use the LaTeX files or Word file to produce your document, since they have been set up to meet the formatting guidelines listed above. When using these files, double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the letter-size paper layout (8.5″ X 11″) or A4 paper layout (210mm X 297mm). The LaTeX environment files specify suitable margins, page layout, text, and a bibliography style.

In particular, with LaTeX, there are cases where the top-margin of the resulting PDF file does not meet the specified parameters. In this case, you may need to add a \topmargin=0mm command just after the \begin{document} command in your .tex file. The spacing of the top margin is not critical, as the page contents will be adjusted on the proceedings. The critical dimensions are the actual width and height of the page content.
