Paper Submission Guidelines

The paper submission system is now closed.

The deadline for submissions is March 11, 2010, midnight US West Coast Time (Pacific Standard Time). This is a hard deadline that will NOT BE EXTENDED
  • Papers should be formatted in Lecture Notes in Computer Science style. Style files can be found on the Springer website. The file format for submissions is Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Other formats will not be accepted.
  • The maximum number of pages is 8. Submissions exceeding this limit will be rejected without review.
  • The review process is double blind. Submissions are to be anonymized (see the guidelines for anonymity below).
  • Submissions should describe original work that has not been submitted to or accepted for another conference, nor will be published in a journal before the MICCAI conference in September 2010.

Anonymity Guidelines

Submissions need to be in compliance with the following guidelines:

  • Author and institutional information needs to be removed from the author list on the title page, as well as on all paper headers.
  • Clues directly identifying any of the authors need to be removed from the main text.
  • Every reference to work by the authors must be made anonymous in one of the following ways:
    • References to other papers by the same authors are listed as "Anonymous" (with no other information) in the bibliography.
    • Work by the same authors that appears on mainstream and readily available publications is cited in the third person, provided that nothing in the referencing can be traced to the identity of the authors.
    For instance, "In [5], Hello and Goodbye have proposed ..." is acceptable, whereas "In [5], we have proposed ..." is not, when reference [5] is listed as "IEEE Trans. PAMI, 6(6):721-741, November 1984". Also, "In [5], Muller and Doe have proposed ..." is not acceptable if [5] is listed as "in press", or, say, "Beijing Symposium on Computational Medicine, 2009"

Failure to comply with the above requirements will result in automatic rejection of the paper.
