General Information

The ICME 2015 paper submission and review process is being conducted in a manner similar to previous ICME conferences:


Preparation of the Paper and Submission

Document Formatting


The following style files and templates are available for users of LaTeX and Microsoft Word:

We recommend that you use the Word file or LaTeX files to produce your document, since they have been set up to meet the formatting guidelines listed above. When using these files, double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the letter-size paper layout (8.5 inch X 11 inch). The LaTeX environment files specify suitable margins, page layout, text, and a bibliography style.

In particular, with LaTeX, there are cases where the top-margin of the resulting Postscript or PDF file does not meet the specified parameters. In this case, you may need to add a \topmargin=0mm command just after the \begin{document} command in your .tex file. The spacing of the top margin is not critical, as the page contents will be adjusted on the proceedings. The critical dimensions are the actual width and height of the page content.

Electronic Paper Submission

When you have your document file ready, gather the following information before entering the submission system:

To submit your document and author information, go to the 'Paper Submission' link on the ICME 2015 homepage and follow the instructions:

The submission system will present an entry form to allow you to enter the paper title, abstract text, author contact information and subject areas. For each paper, it is requested to enter ONE primary subject area, and any number of secondary subject areas.

Note for authors of papers submitted to SPECIAL SESSIONS: you are asked to indicate the name of the special session you are submitting to as the PRIMARY subject area.

ALL authors must be entered in the online form, and must appear in the online form in the same order in which the authors appear on the PDF.

Instructions and Policies

Double blind review: ICME 2015 reviewing is double blind, which means that authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Please read Section 2 of the example paper for detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity. Information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g., titles in the movies, or attached papers) should also be avoided. Also remember to avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

Dual submissions: By submitting a manuscript to ICME, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either has been or will be submitted during the ICME 2015 review period to either a journal or a conference.

Author's responsibilities: If there are papers that may appear to violate any of these conditions, then it is the authors' responsibility to (1) cite these papers (preserving anonymity as described in Section 2 of this example paper), (2) argue in the body of your paper why your ICME paper is nontrivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (3) include anonymized versions of those papers in the supplemental material.

Supplemental material: Authors may optionally upload supplemental material. Typically, this material might include:

Note that the contents of the supplemental material should be referred to appropriately in the paper and that reviewers are not obliged to look at it. All supplemental material must be zipped into a single file. There is a 30MB limit on the size of this file.
