Regular submissions to ICIQ must be submitted using the ICIQ submission website. For questions about the submission site please contact Kai-Uwe Sattler (program chair) at kus(at)tu-ilmenau.de.

In addition to the already accepted papers we invite poster proposals. The poster session is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results and ongoing research projects.

Poster proposals must be no more than 2 pages long. These page limits include all parts of the paper: title, abstract, body, and bibliography. Accepted posters will be presented in a 5 min poster flash session and will appear in the final proceedings of the conference, but will be only two pages long.
