The paper submission period is now open for prospective authors of ICVS2017 conference. Detailed style and formatting instructions can be found in the paper format section.

Each submission will be double-blindly peer-reviewed by at least three experts. This requires the paper to be anonymous so please follow carefully the instructions for the double-blind review.

A paper submission implies that, every author will agree with specific policies and if the paper is accepted, one of the authors, or a proxy, will present the paper at the conference. Submissions not using the Springer templates or disclosing identity of the authors will be rejected without review.

All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format via the ICVS2017 Submission Site (Softconf.com) following the detailed submission instructions.

Deadline for paper submission: April 15 April 25, 2017 (23:59 PM Pacific Time).

All accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Prepare for Double-Blind Review

All reviewing will be double blind, so the paper must not include any information, which allow the authors to be identified. Please consider in particular the following points to ensure a double blind reviewing process:

  • Author name(s) should not appear in the paper (including the abstract):
    • First, “Paper ID (the confirmation number)”, as allocated by Softconf.com website upon registration of the paper, must replace author names and affiliations.
    • Eliminate references to your institutions, your sponsors, and your unpublished work.
    • If you build on your own published work you should give the complete reference (including your name) but talk about this work as if it were somebody else’s.
    • Always make clear what the contributions/differences are with respect to (your own and others’) prior work.
  • All author names must be inserted into the online submission form.
  • Delete author and institution information from document properties.

Policies

Dual/Double Submissions

By submitting a manuscript to ICVS2017, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in an archival peer-reviewed forum. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper is either under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the ICVS2017 review period to any of the following: another conference, a workshop, or a journal. Note that a Technical Report (departmental, arXiv.org, etc.) that is disseminated without any form of direct peer-review is NOT considered a publication. The authors also attest that they did not submit substantially similar submissions to ICVS2017. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection.

Author’s Responsibilities

If there are papers that may appear to violate any of the above conditions, it is the authors’ responsibility to (1) cite these papers (preserving anonymity) and (2) argue in the body of your paper why your ICVS2017 paper is non-trivially different from these concurrent submissions.
