Author Guidelines for Paper Submission to ACCV2009

Following are author kits and instructions for submitting papers for review to ACCV 2009. Papers violating the formatting rules, the double-blind or dual-submission policies, or having more than 12 pages will be rejected. Please see below. To encourage high quality submissions, various paper prizes will be awarded at the conference.The award-winning papers will be selected to appear in a future special issue of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV), and IPSJ Transactions on Computer Vision and Applications (CVA). The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. All of previous ACCV conferences had been indexed by EI (Engineering Index).

Author Kit

Please read the LNCS format instructions (this instruction is written in the required format and may serve as a sample paper). Authors are encouraged to use the LNCS Latex template to prepare the papers, since Word printout may vary due to different computer settings; however, you can find a Word template here and other templates may also be available at Springer website. Your final paper must be EXACTLY in the LNCS/LNAI format for the paper to be included in the proceedings.

The document should be converted from LaTeX to standard PDF that is readable using Acrobat Reader 6.0 or later. To prevent problems with fonts, please create portable PDF files. Choose an option like Download all fonts , when creating the PDF file(s). Please use 'outline' fonts and not 'bitmap' fonts, for the same reason.

The website for submission : https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ACCV2009/


Paper Length and Format:

Papers accepted for the conference will be allocated 10 pages in the proceedings, with the option of purchasing up to 2 extra pages for RMB 685 per page (to be paid after paper acceptance at the time of registration for the conference.) So, if you are unwilling or unable to pay the extra charge you should limit yourself to 10 pages. Otherwise the page limit is 12 pages. There is a 10MB limit on the size of the file of submitted paper.

The deadline for full paper submission to the submission site is Apr. 8 , 2009 11:30:00 PM(Pacific Time).

Double Blind Review:

ACCV 2009 reviewing is double blind : Authors do not know the names of the area chair/reviewers of their papers, and area chairs/reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Remember to REMOVE information that may identify the author (Name, Institute, Funding, or Acknowledgment) in both the paper and the supplemental material.

Dual Submissions: 

By submitting a manuscript to ACCV 2009, the authors assert that it has not been previously published in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either has been or will be submitted during the ACCV 2009 review period to either a journal or a conference (not including ACCV 2009 workshops). If there are any papers that may appear to the reviewers to violate this condition, then it is your responsibility to (1) cite these papers (preserving anonymity as well), (2) argue in the body of your paper why your ACCV paper is nontrivially different from these concurrent submissions, or (3) include anonymized versions of those papers in the supplemental material. For ACCV 2009 we allow dual submissions to ACCV 2009 workshops and the main conference. In case of acceptance, the author will have to decide where the paper should appear (main conference or workshop).

Supplemental Material:

Authors may optionally upload supplemental material. Typically, this material might include videos of results that cannot be included in the main paper, anonymized related submissions to other conferences and journals, and appendices or technical reports containing extended proofs and mathematical derivations that are not essential for understanding of the paper. Note that the contents of the supplemental material should be referred to appropriately in the paper and that reviewers are not obliged to look at it. Important notes are listed below.

  1. All supplemental material must be a single file. There is a 30MB limit on the size of this file. Note that you can update the file by uploading a new one (the old one will be deleted and replaced).
  2. Do not submit a newer version of the paper as supplemental material for any reason whatsoever. A newer version, with description of an improved algorithm/approach/system, or even one spelling or typo correction, is absolutely not allowed.
  3. The inclusion of binary codes in the supplemental material is prohibited. If a binary code is included, then reviewers will simply delete it without testing.
  4. The deadline for supplemental material is Apr. 9, 2009 11:30:00 PM(Pacific Time), one day after the full paper submission deadline. For accepted papers, revised supplemental material (videos) can be included in the final DVD conference proceedings.
