IAPR Statement of Ethics

By submitting a paper to PSIVT 2015 all of its authors implicitly agree to abide by the IAPR Statement of Ethics.

Conference Registration

To publish a paper in the Symposium Proceedings, at least one of the authors must be registered at a full registration rate (for main PSIVT conference at least). According to IAPR rules, one registration is fine for having multiple co-authored papers at the conference.

Final Paper Submission

Authors of accepted papers for PSIVT 2015 main conference, please refer to the following for the preparation and submission of your camera-ready paper.

Camera-ready Uploading Instructions

Final Paper Submission, due on October 21st, 23:59 (US Pacific Standard Time):

Please be sure that you out-commented (or removed) in the *.tex file (before generating the pdf) the line \usepackage{ruler} for eliminating the line numbering.

The final version of your paper must be submitted in electronic format as a PSIVT2015_paperID.zip file. Here, paperID should be replaced by the paper ID that was given to your submission by the conference. For example, PSIVT2015_67.zip.

If you like to provide supplemental material (e.g. a video) to your final version of your paper, to be included on the memory stick available at the conference, then please submit a second zip-archive as a PSIVT2015_Suppl_paperID.zip file.

Camera-ready Paper Formatting

Papers should be written in English according to the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science guidelines and templates.

Your final paper zip-file should include:

  • one tex file (NOT several tex files, e.g. not each section in a separate file, and also not a bbl file, all references in the single tex) containing the source of your paper;
  • all the used figures in pdf, jpg, or png format (NOT in eps format, and NOT in a subfolder; tex file and figures should be inside the same folder);
  • a pdf of the compiled tex file;
  • no separate macro file; if individual macros were used, then they should also be included in the source tex file;
  • completed and signed Springer Copyright Form. Please download the linked Copyright Form.
  • The manuscript has to follow LNCS standards. Pay extra attention on how the references are written, e.g years in brackets, and authors listed by surnames first, followed by initials.

To publish the paper in the Symposium Proceedings (LNCS volume), at least one of the authors must be registered at a non-student registration rate, and the paper must be presented (by one of the co-authors) at the conference.

Maximum Paper Length

Papers should be submitted in camera-ready format. Each paper should be at most 12-pages long. Papers up to 14-pages long will be allowed but the authors will have to cover an extra per-page fee (of NZ$100 per additional page 13 or 14, to be paid at registration desk in cash). No "squeezing" of text or figures is allowed. If the spaces between figures and text are too narrow, or the required font (see LNCS instructions) is not used, the files will be properly formatted, and resulting extra pages will be charged.

Author Kit

Papers must use the following format:

  • LNCS author guidelines from Springer website (pdf, 1.1 MB)
  • LNCS PSIVT 2015 LaTeX submission template (zip, 36 KB). For camera-ready version please erase or comment the line \usepackage{ruler} in the *.tex file.
  • LNCS Word 2007 submission template (zip, 311 KB). The use of Microsoft Word is ***not recommended*** by Springer, as the layout of the pages can change between printouts. Please read the explanatory typing instructions "SPLNPROC Word 2007-2010 Technical Instructions.pdf" contained in the ZIP archive carefully.


For any difficulties and other issues regarding submission, please feel free to contact Huihui Sun (sunhh437@163.com) or (0086) 027-67867527.
