Presentation instructions

Oral Presentations at the Conference
Each paper is allocated a 20 minute slot in the technical programme, i.e. 15 minutes oral presentation, 5 minutes Q & A. The conference room is equipped with a video projector and a computer running Microsoft Windows with Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat Reader. Using your own laptop or smart device, as long as it is enabled with VGA output connection is possible but not recommended. The presenter should prepare a set of slides that clearly illustrate the main points of his/her paper, and make sure the presentation fits well within the assigned time slot.

Poster Presentations at the Conference
Posters presentations will occur on Thursday 25th August during coffee break. Authors must be next to their poster to answer questions. The poster must not exceed the A0 (84 cm X 118 cm) portrait format. Please use an appropriate font size for the posters so that they are readable by the participants from 1.5 meter away. The poster message should be clear and understandable even without oral explanation. Please assure the poster is placed on the board before the beginning of the poster session. The poster must be printed prior to the conference and brought by the presenter.


Submission guidelines

Submissions are welcome from all attendees. A final version of the submitted paper should be submitted to EasyChair before the respective deadline. For IMVIP 2016, two forms of submission will be accepted.

  1. Long papers must be between 6 and 8 pages, including references. Full papers will be published in the conference proceedings, can be presented as a talk or a poster during the conference, and can be associated with demos also presented at the conference. The deadline for submission of long papers has been extended to Friday, June 24th.

  2. Short papers must be a maximum of 2 pages, including references. Short papers are a convenient way for presenting in-progress research, student projects, machine vision applications in industry or to advertise mature work recently published elsewhere. Short papers will be published in the conference proceedings, can be presented as a poster during the conference, and can be associated with demos also presented at the conference. The deadline for submission of short papers is Friday, June 24th.


When submitting, please remove all author information to allow for the double blind review process.
After review, notification of successful submissions will be provided. Submissions should be of the form of a PDF manuscript. A template for paper submissions is available here. This should be used for both long and short papers.

Submissions for a poster session are also welcome. These should be in A0 portrait format (not to exceed 84 cm X 118 cm). A poster session shall be run concurrently with a coffee session on the morning of Friday 25th of August.

Best paper prizes

Prizes will be awarded in the categories of best paper and best student paper.

Double-blind reviewing

It is standard practice that identities of the reviewers are not made known to authors. The double-blind review process extends this principle so that reviewers do not know the identity of authors. We ask that authors refrain from identifying themselves in their own paper. Instructions for including author details in camera ready papers will follow after the review process.

In the case of successful manuscript or poster submissions, one of the corresponding authors must be available to travel to attend the conference and to present their work.

Proceedings

The proceedings for this conference will be published open access on NUI, Galway's Research Archive, ARAN. An example of the proceedings from IMVIP 2015 can be accessed here.
