Submissions should describe original work that has not been submitted
to or accepted for another conference, nor will be published in a
journal before the MICCAI conference in September 2014. You might want
to read the reviewer
. Understanding how the reviewers are expected to
evaluate your paper might help you in writing the paper and presenting
- Papers should be formatted in Lecture Notes in Computer
Science style. Latex
style files can be found on the Springer website, which also contains Office Word
instructions (scroll to the bottom half of the web page). The file
format for submissions is Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Other
formats will not be accepted. Please check the PDF document properties
tab to confirm that the author field does not break anonymity.
- The maximum number of pages is 8. Submissions exceeding this limit
will be rejected without review.
- The review process is double blind. Submissions are to be
anonymized (see the guidelines for anonymity below).
Failure to comply with the anonymity requirements below will result in
automatic rejection of the paper.
- Remove author and institutional information from the author list
on the title page. Please replace this information with asterisks and
do not delete the lines completely. If you remove the blank lines then
your paper may be regarded as violating the 8 page limit
- Remove author information from all paper headers.
- Remove clues from the main text that would directly identify any
of the authors such an acknowledgment section or names of your
collaborating partners (hospital, company...).
- Your own published work (including online publications) must be
cited in the third person, in a manner that is not traceable to the
identity of the authors. For example: "In , Hello and Goodbye
have proposed ..." is acceptable, whereas "In , we have
proposed ..." is not.
- Your own work that is in press or accepted for publication and
thus not available for the reviewers should be listed as
"Anonymous" (with no other information) in the
bibliography. For example: "In , Muller and Doe have proposed
..." is not acceptable if  is listed as "Anonymous".
- You may reveal anonymized citations to the primary PC member (the
one assigning the external reviewers) using the submission form. This
information will not be known to external reviewers or secondary PC
members (the ones making accept/reject recommendations for your
paper). You may upload anonymized reprints of such papers as
- Anonymize your PDF file. Note that PDF creator programs may
accidentally leave Author information in the file header.
- You may also upload supplementary material. The program committee
and the reviewers are absolutely under no obligation to look at this
material. Your manuscript must be self-contained and complete without
supplementary material. The supplementary material is solely for
aiding the review and it will not be included in the proceedings.
- One allowed use of the supplementary material is to augment the
"Closest works" section in the paper submission page, by
providing reprints of manuscripts that are not readily available to
the reviewers, such as your own pending papers referenced as Anonymous
in the manuscript (your own reprints should be anonymized). You could
use these reprints to explain the extent of overlap between your
manuscript and other publications. Do not attach preambles or notes
with the reprints.
- Any attempt to abuse the supplementary material, such as trying to
circumvent the page limits of the main manuscript, will lead to
rejection without further review.
Suggested PC Members
You will be asked to select a number of PC members to handle your
paper. The program committee will take these suggestions into
consideration when assigning your paper.
Please be mindful of conflict of interest when suggesting PC
members. If the program chairs perceive that you purposefully violated
conflict of interest rules, your paper will be rejected without
