  • Sensing for Automated Systems with the Autonomous Vehicles and Machines Conference
  • Image Input Hardware with the Photography, Mobile, and Immersive Imaging Conference

Submission requirements:

The status of the work is required to be described in the submitted structured abstract, specifically whether the work is: a) a new idea, b) a new idea with a patent filed or pending, c) finished research with results or preliminary results, or d) a commercial product or planned to shortly become a commercial product.

Ways to Submit

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

  1. Presentation at the conference and publication in the conference proceedings. This is the most common option, and if accepted may be assigned either an oral or interactive (poster) presentation. Submit a 4-6 page draft proceedings paper with optional figures using the symposium template  
  2. Presentation-only. Oral presentation at the conference, but no publication of work in the conference proceedings. Submit a 500-word short abstract 
  3. JIST-first. Expedited review and publication in the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) before the conference, oral presentation at the conference, and inclusion in the conference proceedings. To meet the publication timeline, successful JIST-first submissions must require only minor revisions in response to peer-review. Those not meeting this stringent standard are automatically re-considered for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings (option 1 above). Author instructions for journal submissions  

Final Manuscript Deadline

The final manuscript is due 10 January 2018. The proceedings will be published after the conference.
