Dear Authors:

Although your submission to QRS 2019 is not accepted by the main conference, after reviewing the comments provided by the program committee members we believe that it is still of good quality and can contribute to the scientific community.

Hence, we are pleased to recommend that your paper be included in the QRS 2019 Companion, which will be published by the IEEE Conference Publishing Services.

At the conference, we will group your papers into sessions with others in the same topic. This implies that in the conference program, your paper will be listed under an appropriate session. You have 30 minutes for your oral presentation, including questions and answers.

After the conference, your paper will be uploaded to the IEEE digital library and will also be submitted for Ei-index.

In the future, you can cite your paper by saying that it is published in the Companion of the 19th IEEE International Conference on Software Quality, Reliability, and Security.
