Workshop Topics 

See the Overview tab and Topics tab above for details on technical content and solicited topics. Submissions within the scope of this technical content are welcome.

Ways to Submit

There are three options for submission; please read the descriptions carefully.

  1. Presentation at the workshop and publication in the workshop proceedings. This is the most common option, and if accepted may be assigned either an oral or interactive (poster) presentation. Submit a 500-word structured abstract with optional figures using the symposium template  
  2. Presentation-only. Oral presentation at the workshop, but no publication of work in the workshop proceedings. Submit a 500-word short abstract. This option allows for “late-breaking” news/results.  
  3. JIST-first. Expedited review and publication in the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology [SCI/EI-indexed] before the workshop, oral presentation at the workshop, and inclusion in the workshop proceedings. To meet the publication timeline, successful JIST-first submissions (journal paper, typically 10 or more pages) must require only minor revisions in response to peer-review. Those not meeting this stringent standard are automatically re-considered for presentation at the workshop and publication in the proceedings (option 1 above). Author instructions for journal submissions  

Final Manuscript Deadline

Manuscripts are submitted to the separate manuscript system via a custom link given to each accepted author. Final manuscripts (typically 4-6 pages) submitted in correct form by 25 November 2019 will be published online as of the opening day of EI 2020 via the Fast Track queue in the EI Digital Library. Manuscripts submitted or corrected after that date will be published online after EI 2020 in the complete workshop proceedings. All manuscripts are due, in corrected form, by 10 February 2020.
