Supplemental material can be uploaded until December 20, 2010 at 18:00 PST (UTC-8). Due to the paper review timeline, no further extension will be granted under any condition.


The paper submission and review site is here.

 

Please read carfully the entire instructions below detailing the requirements for papers submitted to the 3DIMPVT 2011 conference. Any paper not fulfilling these requirements may be rejected at the discretion of the PC co-chairs.

The entire paper submission and review process is electronic and will be handled by Microsoft Research's CMT system. Note that CMT requires a recent browser with cookies enabled. Emails sent by the system and by organizers throughout the review process will originate from the address cmt@microsoft.com, with an appropriate Reply-to field. Please ensure that messages from this sender are not blocked by your email filters.

The proceedings, published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS) , will be available on-site in electronic form, an later on IEEE Xplore.


REQUIREMENTS

Originality:

The 3DIMPVT Conference publishes original, peer-reviewed, full papers. It does not accept dual submissions. By submitting a manuscript to 3DIMPVT 2011, the authors assert that it has not been previously published 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 3DIMPVT 2011 review period (from submission date to the notification on February 15th, 2011) to either a journal or a conference. 3DIMPVT also applies strict rules on plagiarism.

The conference proceedings are published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS), the final version of the papers must comply with the IEEE copyright policy.


Anonymity:

The review process is double-blind. You therefore must conceal your identity throughout your submission. As is the normal practice, this means that you must not indicate your name or affiliation on the paper, acknowledgements must not be included in the manuscript, and references to your previous papers or research must only be included in a form that do not link them to you. Authors need to specify any potential conflict of interest with PC members or conference organizers.


Attendance policy:

By submitting a paper to 3DIMPVT 2011, the authors also commit to having at least one author attending the conference and presenting the paper if it is accepted. Please note that at least one author per accepted paper will be required to register and pay the fee before acceptance of the final paper. In any conference, the absence of a presenter (oral or poster) for any accepted paper cause disruptions to the program, and runs against the reason for holding conferences in the first place.

For 3DIMPVT 2011, a strict policy against such "no-show" papers will be enforced: any paper which is not presented by an author at the conference may be withdrawn from the IEEE Xplore on-line proceedings, at the discretion of the chairs. Exceptions may be considered if arrangements are made in advance, in consultation with the Program co-chairs, for a suitable replacement presenter.

To avoid involuntary no-shows caused by budget, visa or other considerations, the authors are strongly encouraged to get all necessary university, company and/or government approvals prior to submitting their paper to the conference; they should also seek information on requirements for travel and visa that are relevant to their current status, citizenship and residence well in advance of the paper deadlines.


Paper format:


For the submission stage: papers submitted for review must follow the two-column format. An example and author's kit, 3DIMPVT-2011AuthorKit.zip, including LaTeX and Word templates, are provided. Papers must be submitted in camera-ready form following the provided example, and only PDF format is accepted. The maximum paper length for review as well as for publication is 8 pages, without charges (please ignore comments to that effect in the paper kit). These requirements are strictly enforced, papers longer than 8 pages, or improperly formatted, will be rejected without review. Instructions for formatting the final version of the paper will be  provided by  Conference  Publishing Services (CPS) after decision.

Electronic manuscripts must be submitted in Adobe Acrobat PDF format, readable with at least version 8.2 (English) of Acrobat Reader. When using PDF preparation tools, please make sure that you are embedding all required non-standard fonts, or avoid them altogether; otherwise your manuscript may not print or display properly using the basic Acrobat Reader installation (or alternate PDF readers), thus causing substantial delays in the review process.

Papers accepted for either oral or poster presentation will be allocated the same number of pages (8) for the final version. There are no page charges; conversely, there will be no provisions for purchasing additional pages. The decision between oral and poster presentation will be made by the Program co-Chairs, with the goal of providing a balanced and dynamic program for both oral and poster sessions.

Of course, the submission system keeps track of submissions and their authors, but we also ask that you include the SUBMISSION ID # issued by the submission site in place of the authors field in your PDF file. The maximum allowable file size is 30Mb.


Supplemental material:

Supplemental material (additional PDF file, video) can also be uploaded to the submission site after you have created the paper entry and uploaded the PDF file. To ensure that the reviewers consult this material, please ensure that the file is easily readable with common players and codecs. Remember that the reviewers are NOT obliged to view the video, so it is to your advantage to make their life as easy as possible by ensuring its easy readability: details of format, tested player and version, codec, timing, etc., can be entered on the submission form. Please remember that the video contents should also be anonymized.
