Official Call for Papers
All submissions will be handled electronically via the conference's CMT Website. (The submission site will not open until April 1 at 5PM EDT.) By submitting a paper, the authors agree to the policies stipulated below.
The paper and author registration deadline is Wednesday April 15th, the submission deadline is Wednesday April 22th. Supplementary material can be submitted until Wednesday April 29th.
Paper and Author Registration: By the paper and author registration deadline, authors must submit a temporary paper title, a temporary abstract, and a complete and final list of authors, their institutions and their institutional conflict information. After this deadline, you will not be able to register new papers, or modify authors for papers you already registered, but you will still be able to edit the title and subject areas. In CMT, users are identified by their emails and each time CMT is used for a new conference a new CMT account is created. Therefore, to manage conflicts, it is extremely important that each CMT user has one and only one CMT account for ICCV 2015, even if the user has multiple roles (e.g., author and area chair, author and reviewer). To ensure that each user has only one account, before adding a co-author to a paper, the primary author should contact each co-author to ask him/her if he/she already has a CMT account for ICCV 2015 or not. If your co-author already has a CMT account (e.g., he/she is an area chair or reviewer for ICCV 2015), you must use the SAME email for which he/she already has an account. Otherwise, you will create a different CMT account for the same user. If your co-author does not have a CMT account for ICCV 2015, then please ask him/her which email he/she wishes to use so that the email of each co-author is the SAME for all of his/her ICCV submissions. After adding a co-author, please contact him/her to make sure that he/she inputs his/her own institution and conflict information (see conflict responsibilities below). Please note that, in CMT, institution (e.g., Johns Hopkins University) and institutional conflict (e.g., jhu.edu) are NOT the same thing and that CMT does not automatically infer one from the other: both need to be completed by each co-author. Papers whose authors have incorrect or incomplete institutions or conflict information may be summarily rejected without review.
Conflict Responsibilities: It is the primary author's responsibility to contact all co-authors to ensure that they have registered their institutional conflicts into CMT. After the paper and author registration deadline this cannot be changed anymore.
Each author should enter the primary domain of his/her current institution, not the secondary domain of your department (e.g., use "jhu.edu" instead of "cs.jhu.edu"). Please enter ONLY ONE institutional conflict domain, except if your institution has multiple domains (e.g. "uni-heidelberg.de; uni-hd.de" or "uiuc.edu; illinois.edu"), or if you were affiliated with more than one institution in the last 12 months (April 2014 - April, 2015). DO NOT enter the domain of email providers such as "gmail.com", "yahoo.com", "hotmail.com" and "163.com" as your institutional conflict.Example 1: mit.edu
Example 2: mit.edu; inria.fr
Example 3: google.com; ox.ac.uk
Example 4: inria.fr; ens.fr; iiit.ac.in
Note that your institutional conflict information is not automatically extracted from your email or from the name of your institution, thus you must enter it here.
DO NOT enter the email addresses or email domains of other individuals with whom you have a conflict due to advisor/advisee relationship, or a current or past (last 48 months) co-authorship or collaboration: We will mine advising, co-authorship and collaboration conflicts automatically using specialized software. The institutional conflict information you provide will be used in conjunction with the advising, co-authorship and collaboration conflict information that we will collect in order to resolve assignments to both reviewers and area chairs. If a paper is found to have an undeclared or incorrect institutional conflict, the paper may be summarily rejected.
Paper Submission: By the paper submission deadline, the authors must submit the final title, abstract, primary and secondary areas, and a complete version of their paper in PDF format. The authors may optionally suggest the names of three Area Chairs whose expertise best matches the topic of their paper. Please make sure that the AC is not conflicted with your paper (same institution, advisor/advisee relationship, co-authorship/collaboration in the last 48 months). You can find a list of ACs and their expertise at http://www.pamitc.org/iccv15/ac_profiles.php. Please use the following submission instructions and blind-submission review-formatted templates to prepare your submission:
The paper length should match that intended for final publication. Papers are limited to eight pages, including figures and tables. One additional page containing only cited references is allowed. Papers that are not blind, or do not use the template, or have more than 8 pages (excluding 1 page for references) will be rejected without review.
Supplementary Material Submission: By the supplementary material submission deadline, the authors may optionally submit additional material that was ready at the time of paper submission but could not be included in the main paper due to constraints of format (e.g., a video), space (e.g., a proof of a theorem or an extra figure or table) or anonymity (e.g., a concurrent submission to ICCV or to another conference). Please see below for detailed instructions on supplementary materials.
Rebuttal and Revised Paper: After receiving the reviews, the authors may optionally submit a rebuttal to the reviewers' comments, which will be limited to 4000 characters. The authors may also optionally upload a new version of the paper that addresses the reviewers' comments. In this case, the changes between the original submission and the revised version MUST be minimal (as they are meant to address only the reviewers' comments) and MUST be highlighted in red to facilitate checking the changes. The revised version must adhere to the same blind-submission review-formatted template as the original submission.
Camera Ready Paper: If your paper is accepted for publication, by the camera-ready deadline you should submit a final version of your paper which is identical to either the original or revised version of your paper (if you submitted one as part of the rebuttal), except that (1) you may correct typos and do minimal changes requested by the reviewers or area chairs in their final recommendation, and (2) you must use the camera ready template with the authors' names, affiliations and acknowledgements included. Notice that you are not allowed to add new material (theorems, algorithms, experiments) which were not reviewed by the reviewers, except in very unusual circumstances where this was requested by the area chairs.
Review Process: By submitting a paper to ICCV, the authors agree to the review process and understand that papers are processed by the Toronto Paper Matching System (TPMS) to match each manuscript to the best possible area chairs and reviewers. (See here for area chair subject areas.)
Double Blind Review: ICCV reviewing is double blind, in that 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. Please read Section 1.6 of the example paper egpaper_for_review.pdf for detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity. Avoid providing information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g., titles in the movies, or attached papers). Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors. Violation of any of these guidelines may lead to rejection without review.
If you are submitting another paper concurrently to any venue (including ICCV) and the concurrent submission is related to your ICCV submission or may be perceived as being related to your ICCV submissions by the reviewers (e.g., the reviewer may be able to better assess the novelty of your paper by having access to both submissions), then the authors should (1) cite these concurrent submissions (preserving anonymity as described in Section 1.6 of the example paper egpaper_for_review.pdf), (2) argue in the body of your ICCV paper why your ICCV paper is non trivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (3) include anonymized versions of those papers in the supplemental material. In case of any doubt, please contact the Program Chairs well ahead of the paper submission deadline for clarifications.
If you submitted a version of your ICCV submission to arxiv.org, to preserve anonymity, you should not cite the arxiv paper in your ICCV submission. If you need to refer to material in the arxiv paper which does not appear in the body of your ICCV submission, then you should anonymize the arxiv paper and submit it to ICCV as supplementary material so that you can refer to it in the body of your paper while preserving anonymity.
Giving a talk about your ICCV 2015 submission is NOT considered a violation of the double-blind review process.
Plagiarism: IEEE defines plagiarism as the reuse of someone else's prior ideas, processes, results, or words without explicitly acknowledging the original author and source. It is important for all IEEE authors to recognize that plagiarism in any form, at any level, is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences. Note that we will be actively checking for plagiarism. Each violation will be reported to the IEEE. For further information, please refer to Section 8.2.4.F of the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual.
Dual/Double Submissions: By submitting a manuscript to ICCV, authors acknowledge that it has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in any peer-reviewed venue with publicly accessible papers, including journals, conferences, workshops, or other peer-reviewed, archival forums. Furthermore, no paper substantially similar in content has been or will be submitted to another peer-reviewed conference or workshop with publicly accessible papers during the review period (April 2015 - August 2015). The authors also attest that they did not submit a substantially similar submission to ICCV 2015. As a rule of thumb, the ICCV submission should contain no more than 20 percent of material from previous publications. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection.
Our policy is based upon the following particular definition of "publication". A publication, for the purposes of the dual submission policy, is defined to be a written work that was submitted for review by peers for either acceptance or rejection, and, after review and acceptance, can be publicly accessed. In particular, this definition of publication does not depend upon whether such an accepted written work appears in a formal proceedings or whether the organizers declare that such work "counts as a publication".
Consider the following examples of previous work with regard to the dual submission policy:
In case of any doubt, please contact the Program Chairs well ahead of the paper submission deadline for clarifications.
An extended version of a paper submitted to ICCV (with sufficiently new material) can be submitted to a journal anytime after the ICCV submission deadline (even before a final decision on the paper is sent to the authors). An author submitting an extended version of an ICCV paper to a journal needs to ensure that the paper (a) satisfies all submission requirements of the intended journal (e.g., most likely the ICCV submission should be included as supplementary material to the journal and the author should explain why the journal submission is nontrivially different to the ICCV submission) and (b) does not violate any copyright with IEEE. Authors may also wish to notify the Program Chairs of their journal submission.
Publication: All accepted papers will be made publicly available by the Computer Vision Foundation (CVF) two weeks before the conference. Authors wishing to submit a patent understand that the paper becomes of public domain after the final (camera-ready) version is submitted. More information about CVF is available at http://www.cv-foundation.org/
Attendance Responsibilities: The authors agree that if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the paper there.
Authors may optionally upload supplementary material, which may not fit in the PDF size limit and may include:
ICCV encourages authors to submit videos using an MP4 codec such as DivX contained in an AVI. Also, please submit a README text file with each video specifying the exact codec used and a URL where the codec can be downloaded.
The authors should refer to the contents of the supplementary material appropriately in the paper. Note that reviewers will be encouraged to look at it, but are not obligated to do so. Please note that:
