Invitation to Submit Proposals

Proposals are invited for the 12th edition of the International Conference on Quality of Multimedia Experience (QoMEX) to be held in 2020. The primary goal of the conference is to bring together leading professionals and scientists in multimedia quality and user experience from around the world.

Requirements for proposal submission

Content and Format: Propose a clear format of the conference.
The proponents are asked to suggest a three-day format. The format should combine focused theme topics with general topics of interest to the QoMEX audience, in addition to a social program. If possible proponents are encouraged to co-ordinate with Qualinet on the possibility of hosting a one-day QUALINET meeting prior to QoMEX.

Team: Propose an organizing and a technical program committee.
The proponents are asked to provide a list of key organizing committee members. The organizing committee should be international and should have proven experience in organizing other international conferences and events. An initial list of a technical program committee from which reviewers will be drawn should also be proposed.

Scheduling, Location and Costs: Propose detailed plan and budget. Proponents are encouraged to select a location that is easily accessible. The characteristics of the venue and costs associated should be included. In particular a budget for a 50/75/100/125 person conference should be presented, as well as handling procedure for deficit/profit. The prepared budget needs to include an admin fee that amounts to 5% of the collected registration fees, or $30 per individual registration. A template can be provided upon request.

Paper Review: Propose solutions for the review process.
A system wherein four or more primary reviewers for each paper can be handled should be proposed. The proposal should estimate how many reviewers will be needed, and indicate how and how many additional good quality reviewers outside the technical program committee will be recruited. The proponents are expected to build a database of reliable and good quality reviewers, which can be enhanced upon the previous years’ reviewers’ database.
