Guidelines for Paper Submission to ACCV2016

Following are author kits and instructions for submitting papers for review to ACCV 2016.

  • Submitted papers can be up to 14 pages, not including references.
  • Papers with more than 14 pages (excluding references) will be rejected without review. Include as many additional pages for references as needed.
  • Only PDF files are accepted (maximum size 30MB) for paper submission. You need to include the paper ID (generated by the CMT system after you register your paper) in the pdf file of your paper for review.
  • Review will be double-blind so all submissions must be anonymised.
  • Supplementary material can be submitted containing, for example, illustrative videos, additional results, detailed theorem proofs or material that is under review elsewhere but necessary for understanding the submission (this must be declared as such). Submissions, including supplementary material, must be self-contained; for example it is not acceptable to include (even anonymised) URLs to additional external material.
  • The submission of supplementary material is optional. Only one PDF or ZIP file is accepted for the supplementary material submission with a maximum size of 30MB.
Submitted material should be original in the sense that it has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in any peer-reviewed venue including journals, conferences, workshops, or archival forums. Even if the paper is not published in a proceeding, if it was peer-reviewed and accepted to any such venue it will be considered published. University technical reports and arXiv.org papers are excluded from this rule as they are not peer-reviewed. Any paper substantially similar in content to another paper that has been or will be submitted to another journal, conference, or workshop, including ACCV 2016 itself, during the review period (May 27, 2016 – August 19, 2016), would also be considered dual submission and rejected without review.
Papers violating the formatting rules, the double-blind or dual-submission policies, or having more than 14 pages of main text will be rejected without review. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. There will be no extra page charges associated with the conference but every paper will be subject to a flat-rate publication charge. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to register (full registration) for the conference before Sep. 6, 2016 and present the paper at the conference. Papers none of whose authors are registered by this time will be redacted from the conference.
Author Instructions

  1. Paper Submission and Review
    • Site: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ACCV2016/
      (bookmark or save this URL)
    • The submission site opens on March 1, 2016.
    • The paper submission deadline is May 27, 2016, 23:59 PDT (GMT-7).
      The deadline is final (no extension).
  2. Your CMT account
    If you have been invited to review for ACCV2016, an account has been automatically generated for you using the contact email as your account name (regardless of whether you agreed to review or not). You need to only request for a new password via “Reset your password".
    (Please add “cmt@microsoft.com" to your list of safe senders to prevent important email announcements from being blocked by spam filters.)
  3. Logging in the first time
    When you log in for the first time, you will be asked to enter your conflict domain information. You will not be able to submit any paper without entering this information. We need to ensure conflict-free reviewing of all papers.
  4. Updating contact information
    At any time, you can edit your contact information. Don’t forget to click the “Update" button to save the edited information. If you wish to change the contact email address, you can modify it via the “Change your Email" box.
  5. Entering subject (topic) areas for your paper
    When you submit a paper, you will be asked to specify its associated subject areas. Please note that you indicate only one “primary" subject area and any number of “secondary" subject areas. Please pay extra attention in selecting your subject areas, as this information is critical in allowing us to properly assign papers to area chairs and reviewers. Caution: you cannot pick the “primary" subject area as a “secondary" subject area; if you do this, the system will not allow you to save. For example, if you had picked “Segmentation and Grouping" as the “primary" area, you cannot pick “Segmentation and Grouping" as a “secondary" area.
  6. Entering optional workshop submission details
    Workshops are being run in association with ACCV 2016. You may elect to have your paper automatically submitted for consideration at one of the workshops in the event that your paper is rejected from the main conference.Simply select the most relevant workshop from the list presented on the submission site.

(IMPORTANT – Publication Fee) Similar to the recent ACCV’s, all accepted papers to the main conference will be charged a flat fee of USD$110 for ACCV 2016. This fee helps cover the cost of the reviewing process and will be paid after paper acceptance, at the time of registration for the conference.
