Submitting Camera Ready Copy

Early accepted papers must be uploaded by May 15, 2015. Papers accepted at the second acceptance/rejection phase must be uploaded by May 25, 2015. Papers accepted at the PC meeting must be uploaded by June 5, 2015. All the files must be uploaded to the submission site.

For the paper to be included in the conference proceedings,

  • the authors must address the review comments provided by external reviewers and the PC members;
  • the camera ready copy with all figures and the copyright form must be uploaded to the paper submission system by the deadlines specified above;
  • at least one author must register for MICCAI 2015 before June 12, 2015;

Preparing Final Version

Please make sure the revised paper addresses as much as possible all questions and requests raised by the reviewers and the PC members. You will also be asked to submit a response that explains how you addressed the comments of the reviewers and the PC members on the submission form in the system.

The proceedings will be prepared in full color. The maximum number of pages for your final paper is 8, including abstract and references. Note that since Springer will enforce their formatting rules, it is extremely important that you strictly adhere to the guidelines (i.e., no vspaces, no modified margins, etc.). The program chairs reserve the right to reject papers that are over the 8 page limit in the final version.

The proceedings will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science in both Electronic and paper versions by Springer. Please read carefully the information for authors from Springer. You must use the LNCS templates (LaTeX2e or Word) available on the Springer website to prepare your paper.

In the latex file of the paper, please insert a line

% index{Last Name, First Name} 

 

for every author of the paper, right after the author{} command. We will use these to create an author index in the proceedings. We need your help to make sure we parse authors' names into the last name and the first name correctly. This is particularly important for the authors with more than two words in their full names, making such parsing ambiguous.

Please make sure that Springer format for bibliographical references is strictly enforced. This is detailed in section 2.8 of the LNCS author guidelines. This is important, for instance, when citing previous MICCAI proceedings.

The submission site will ask you to upload a .zip file of your submission. Please zip all your files, including the digital copy of the signed copyright form, and name the .zip file using your paper submission ID (for example: MICCAI-1246.zip, where 1246 is your paper ID number).

The source files included in the .zip archive must include

  • LaTeX2e files (*.tex) for the text and PS/EPS/JPG/PDF/PNG files for all figures. Please use consistent names for your source files: paperXXX.pdf, paperXXX.tex, where XXX is your paper ID;
  • Any additional style files and fonts you used together with your source files that are not generally available at CTAN;
  • Final PDF file of the paper (for reference);
  • RTF files if you are using a word-processing system other than LaTeX/TeX;
  • LNCS copyright form, which can be signed by the corresponding author on behalf of all authors. Please use "MICCAI 2015" as the Conference Name and "Frangi, Hornegger, Navab, Wells" as the Volume Editors. Please scan your signed copyright form and save it as a JPG or PDF file. Copyright forms should only be provided in an electronic format.
