Submission Requirements

The submission must include a paragraph that clearly identifies the specific contribution(s), the novelty and significance of the work, and its relationship to prior work. Extended abstracts presenting work in progress must include preliminary results and give a clear indication on the type of results that will be provided in the final manuscript. Submissions significantly over 1,000 words may be rejected without review.

Ways to Submit

There are two options for submission; please read the descriptions carefully. Note: This conference DOES NOT accept submissions designated for presentation-only. 

  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 with optional figures using the symposium template  
  2. 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.
