COMPUMATH Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded, Mathematical Reviews, MathSciNet, Current Index to Statistics (CIS).

The authors of the paper presented in the 8th International Conference on Queueing Theory and Network Applications (QTNA 2013) are invited to submit the extended version to Quality Technology and Quantitative Management (QTQM). A special issue of Quality Technology and Quantitative Management (QTQM) will be devoted to Computation and Optimization in Queuing Model with Applications. The submission should be drastically extended as it was an independent submission of the original conference paper. Authors are encouraged to submit high quality papers describing the results of theoretical and computation/experimental research, which solve or have the potential to solve real-world problems.

INSTRUCTION OF THE AUTHORS: Authors should prepare their manuscripts in Microsoft word and send the electronic file (in PDF format) to either of the Guest Editors. Generally the size of a manuscript should not exceed 15 printed pages. Submitted papers should not have previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Refereeing and the selection of papers will be carried out according to QTQM journal standards. For more information regarding the preparation of the manuscript, please visit the journal websites at http://www.cc.nctu.edu.tw/~qtqm/ or http://web.it.nctu.edu.tw/~qtqm/.
