Peer Review Process and Publication

All submitted proposals are peer-reviewed to ensure that the program provides significant, timely, and authoritative information.

  • 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.
  • Presenters are expected to pay the conference registration fee.
  • The conference language is English.

How to Submit

Prospective authors are encouraged to review all the details below, as well as the IS&T Publication Policy.

Authors have the option to submit either a traditional conference paper, which will be published in the CIC proceedings, or a Journal-first paper, which appears in the journal prior to the meeting start date, and as a reprint in the CIC proceedings. Journal-first is available for the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) or the Journal of Perceptual Imaging (JPI). 


Submit via: OR
Submission Deadline: 15 May
Submission Format: Standard-length, publication-ready paper
Review Format: Standard journal peer-review

Why Journal-first?

  • Gain an Open Access journal citation, plus conference presentation.
  • Guaranteed presentation slot if accepted with minor revisions. Papers requiring major revisions may or may not have a speaking slot depending on timing.
  • Fast-tracked review.

Visit the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology or the Journal of Perceptual Imaging pages for more details on how to submit to the journal of your choice. 

Initial decisions and requests for revision, if required, will be sent to authors in late June. Revisions of provisionally accepted papers are due by 14 July 2022, following the decision letter.

Submit JIST-first

Submit JPI-first

Upon acceptance of papers, authors will pay page charges and register for CIC per the individual journal's requirements. Rejected papers will be reviewed for possible inclusion in CIC using the conference submission criteria.

Final papers are due by 8 August 2022.

Submission Template (LaTex)


  • A 4-6 page draft paper describing original work on a relevant topic.
  • The paper should clearly explain the technical content, including how the material is new or distinct from previously presented/published work on the same topic, contain at least preliminary results, and include references to prior work.
  • Agree to pay for the conference registration fee and present the paper during the technical program as scheduled.
  • To facilitate the double-blind review, remove all identifying information from the draft paper, including, but not limited to, author names, titles, affiliations, biographies.


Submit Now

Final decisions on acceptance and presentation format (oral or interactive poster paper) are at the discretion of the Technical Program Committee. Notices of acceptance will be sent by 29 July 2022. Upon notice of acceptance, authors are sent detailed instructions for submitting the full text of the paper for publication in the conference proceedings, including forms for "transfer of copyright," which includes CC-BY and government employee options.
