 How to Submit

Prospective authors are encouraged to review all the details below

Option 1: Conference Proceedings Papers
Submit via:
Submission Deadline: 7 April 2019
Submission Format:  4-6 page draft paper To facilitate the double-blind review process, please remove all identifying details from your PDF submission, including names, affiliations, and author bios. (If your paper is accepted, you will add these details to the final manuscript you submit by 3 September.)
Submission Template (MS-Word)
Submission Template (LaTex)

Original work on relevant topics will be considered by the CIC Review Committee when submitted in the form of a 4-6 page PDF draft paper by 7 April 2019.

Papers should represent unpublished work, provide a clear indication of originality, contain at least preliminary results, and include references to prior work.

A double-blind review process is used to select papers based on criteria including technical soundness and novelty. To facilitate the double-blind review process, please remove all identifying details from your PDF submission, including names, affiliations, and author bios. Final decisions on acceptance and presentation format (oral or interactive paper) are at the discretion of the Technical Program Committee. Notices of acceptance will be sent out in early June. Upon acceptance, instructions are provided for the preparation of the full paper, which is published in the conference proceedings.

Final papers are due 3 September 2019. Direct submission inquiries to Katrina Bird (


Option 2: Journal of Imaging Science and Technology JIST-first Submission
Submit via: 
Submission Deadline: 24 March 2019
About JIST

Journal papers differ from conference papers in that they meet the standards of a peer-reviewed journal in terms of scope, originality, relevance of topic, completeness of background and references to prior work, completeness of results and discussion, and quality of language. Refer to the JIST Author Guidelines below.

JIST-first CIC27 2019 papers are due by 24 March 2019 and are fast-tracked for review. Accepted papers are published in the journal, appear in the CIC proceedings as reprints, and are presented at CIC within the technical papers program. Decisions and requests for revision, if required, will be sent to authors by mid-May. Revisions of provisionally accepted papers are due within 10 days following the decision letter. Upon acceptance of papers, first authors will register for CIC per JIST requirements. Rejected papers will be reviewed for possible inclusion in CIC using the conference submission criteria.
