Page Limits:

ISQED is published only on CD-ROM and the recommended length of papers is minimum 4 (four) pages, and maximum 10 (ten) pages, including all figures, tables, and references. The new WORD Template allows more information to be placed on each page, so we expect most papers to be from 4 to 8 pages. Extra pages over 8 and up to a maximum total of 10 pages will be charged at $200/page. So for example an author of a paper with 10 pages total will pay a US$400 fee. Papers over 10 pages in length may result in a request to rewrite/condense the paper.

Payment for extra pages should be received by ISQED prior to Jan. 12th, 2017. Payment should be made (in US dollars) to the ISQED. If you are registering for the conference with credit card, you can request ISQED to charge your credit card for extra pages as well. Otherwise if you are paying by check please send the payment to the following address:
