Conference Overview

More than ever before, computers and computation are critical to the image formation process. Across diverse applications and fields, remarkably similar imaging problems appear, requiring sophisticated mathematical, statistical, and algorithmic tools. This conference focuses on imaging as a marriage of computation with physical devices. It emphasizes the interplay between mathematical theory, physical models, and computational algorithms that enable effective current and future imaging systems. Contributions to the conference are solicited on topics ranging from fundamental theoretical advances to detailed system-level implementations and case studies.

Ways to Submit

There are four 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 1,000-word structured abstract (using template, with option to add 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. JPI-first. Expedited review and publication in the Journal of Perceptual Imaging (JPI) before the conference, oral presentation at the conference, and inclusion in the conference proceedings. To meet the publication timeline, successful JPI-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  
  4. JIST-first. Expedited review and publication in the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology [SCI/EI-indexed] 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

Final manuscripts (typically 4-6 pages) submitted in correct form by 14 November 2018 will be fast-tracked online as of the opening day of EI 2019. Manuscripts submitted or corrected after that date will be published after EI 2019 in the complete conference proceedings. All manuscripts are due, in corrected form, by 1 February 2019.
