Manuscript Preparation

1. Confirm your intention to present

Upon receiving acceptance notice, confirm intention to present work at CIC and confirm speaker.

2. Apply for a US visa, if necessary

Consular delays can be significant. Apply as soon as possible. On request, IS&T will provide a letter of invitation confirming that you are expected to speak at the conference.

3. Prepare Final Manuscript

  • 4-6 page proceedings manuscript
  • Deadline: 2 October 2022
  • Use the reviewer comments to revise and finalize your submission.
  • Use the Word or LaTeX template to format your submission.
  • Final documents should be high-quality print-ready PDFs. Submit PDF along with source files. Be sure that all fonts and graphics are embedded. Type 3 Fonts are not allowed. 
  • If there are any hyperlinks in the manuscript (including in the references), please confirm that they work as expected. If linking to an electronic document, link to the DOI.
  • Note: IS&T does not edit nor proofread papers. We publish the final version that you provide.

4. Create a Thumbnail Image

This is going to appear next to your article in the Digital Library, so it should not be very detailed. Select a visually interesting image or portion of an image/graph from the paper. 

  • Crop to (w) 350 pixels x (h) 206 pixels set to 150 dpi.
  • Color mode: RGB
  • Flatten the image, if an option.
  • Save as PNG or JPEG/JPG 

5. Sign the Copyright Agreement

A completed copyright agreement is required for publication. Standard transfer, CCBY, and government options are available

6. Update Submission Information

  • Update the the final manuscript title, author(s), affiliations, and short abstract to match your final paper exactly. See Updating Information in OpenConf below.
  • Update/add the biography of the presenting author; this is shared with the session chair for the introduction of your paper.
  • Update your contact information and any co-author information any time it changes.

7. Upload files to OpenConf

  • See How to Upload your files in OpenConf below.
  • Upload your manuscript (PDF and Source), thumbnail image, copyright agreement, and any other requested documents.

8. Register for the conference

At least one author per paper must pay the full conference registration fee (member/non-member; not student).

Additional Instructions for Interactive Presenters

About Interactive (Poster) Papers

Interactive (poster) papers offer the unique opportunity for authors to make a 2-minute oral presentation during a technical session PLUS have a poster of their work displayed during the entire conference + get direct feedback from other attendees during the Interactive Paper Session. Interactive Papers have three (3) components:

  1. Proceedings manuscript as described above
  2. Slides for your 2-minute oral preview. 
  3. Poster for viewing

The Poster Preview

The goal is to entice people to come talk with you about your work during the Interactive Paper Session. Refer to your acceptance letter or the Program for the day and time of your preview talk.

Please use the Interactive Preview Slide Template to prepare your slides.  You may also use the conference artwork from CIC Slide Art Elements. (Don't forget to include a slide with the name and authors of the paper!)

Prepare 3-5 slides; keep your 2-minute presentation concise and focus on the key points:

  • What problem did you want to solve?
  • What was your approach/methodology?
  • What are your results?

The Poster

  • Posters must fit within 4'x4' (~1 meter x 1 meter). ARCH E and A0 are common sizes that will fit in this area.  ARCH E (36" x48") is most common in the US, A0 may be easier if printing outside the US.
  • We discourage the use of multiple pieces of paper; a large-format print is preferred. Simply affixing copies of your paper from the proceedings to your poster board is not acceptable.
  • Remember: people will read your poster materials from a distance of ~ 3 feet/1 meter, so text should be large and legible.
  • IS&T will provide options for printing your poster in Scottsdale.

Poster Printing Options
For those attending in person
  1. Bring with you.
  2. You pick up in Scottdale: Order from FedEx. Closest FedEx to hotel (4513 N Scottsdale Rd Suite 114, Scottsdale, AZ 85251 / 480-946-0500). Biggest size is 36”x48” (ARCH E) and is around $70. You are responsible for picking up from FedEx.
  3. Your poster is delivered to the hotel: Contact Kay via [email protected]; +1-480-994-1514. You’ll need to send her your file, let her know the size (48”x48” ~$105 / 36”x48” ~$85), arrange direct payment (she will confirm price based on what you send), and tell her that they should send it to the Embassy Suites Hotel with the rest of order #143893.
For those attending remotely
  • Use option #3 above. We will hang your poster for you.

  • Papers presented at the conference should be complete in regard to advancing the state of knowledge in the area of color and imaging.
  • Authors have the choice of submitting their paper to an IS&T journal (JIST or JPI) or the conference committee for inclusion in the event. "Journal-first" publication allows authors a journal citation for their work (details below).
  • All papers presented at CIC30 are published Open Access in the conference proceedings and/or journal, indexed with various services, filed with the US Library of Congress, and made available as downloadable PDFs through the IS&T Digital Library. Authors may also post the authoritative version of accepted papers in repositories and on websites.
  • Authors are expected to adhere to the guidelines and ethics found in the IS&T Publication Policy.
  • Please note: IS&T strongly discourages the use of the Lena (Lenna) image in IS&T publications, conference presentations, and short courses. Authors/presenters/instructors should use other suitable images to illustrate and compare image processing algorithms. IS&T journals and conferences no longer review submissions containing the Lena image without convincing scientific justification for its use.
  • Presenters are expected to pay the conference registration fee.
  • The conference language is English.
