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 4-6 page draft proceedings paper 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 (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 conference 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 conference proceedings. All manuscripts are due, in corrected form, by 10 February 2020.
