Instructions

Full papers are invited on any aspect of information processing in medical image formation, analysis or interpretation. We are keen that the scope of the conference should reflect current trends, and thus encourage a broad interpretation of the field: from macroscopic to molecular imaging, in patient care or biomedical research. Of particular interest are papers that emphasize sound mathematical and/or computational principles.

Submissions will be accepted in electronic form via this website. Submissions will be reviewed by an international Scientific Committee and the best will be selected for oral or poster presentation. In the review process, particular emphasis will be placed on originality, scientific rigor and biomedical relevance.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Image Analysis and Signal Processing
  • Shape Representation and Analysis
  • Image Registration and Fusion
  • Functional and Molecular Imaging
  • Novel Image Acquisition Methods and Devices
  • Computational Physiology
  • Data Visualization
  • Statistical and Mathematical Models
  • Image Reconstruction
  • Image Interpretation and Computer Aided Diagnosis
  • Imaging and Genomics
  • Objective Assessment of Image Quality, Image Guided Surgery

Format of Submission

To have a contribution considered for the conference you will need to submit a full paper in pdf format, according to the detailed instructions below. Papers accepted for the conference will be included in the Proceedings, which will be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. For preparation of your paper the use of LaTeX is strongly recommended, but Word is also acceptable. The layout of submitted papers must adhere strictly to the guidelines set out in the Instructions for the Preparation of Camera-Ready Contributions to LNCS/LNAI Proceedings, apart from any exceptions noted below. Please use style files provided by the publisher. As the conference proceedings will be printed in color, feel free to add colored figures. However, authors might be required to pay additional charges for color figures. We reserve the right to reject papers that do not meet these requirements. When you have prepared your manuscript, go to the 'New Submissions' page on this tab to upload the file. The online submission form also requires you to provide contact and author details, an abstract, keywords, and a summary of the contribution your paper makes to knowledge and practice.

The following exceptions to the Springer instructions should be noted.

  1. Your manuscript should be no longer than 12 pages. Submissions exceeding this limit will be rejected without review.
  2. For review, only the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) version of the paper should be submitted.
  3. Citations should include all co-authors of the paper
  4. Submissions should describe original work that has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no other paper, which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper, will be under review at the time of submission, or will be submitted during the IPMI 2013 review period.
  5. The review process is double blind. Submissions are to be anonymized according to the following guidelines:
    • Remove all author and institutional information from the author list on the title page, paper headers, and PDF file. Note that PDF creator programs may accidentally leave Author information in the file header.
    • Remove all clues from the main text that would directly identify any of the authors such an acknowledgment section or names of your collaborating partners (Hospital, company...).
    • Your own published work that appears in the mainstream (including online) and is available to the reviewers. It must be cited in the third person, in a manner that is not traceable to the identity of the authors. For example: "In [5], Hello and Goodbye have proposed ..." is acceptable, whereas "In [5], we have proposed ..." is not. Also, a technical report available via "http://publications.csail.mit.edu/" is acceptable, whereas the personal web site "http://people.csail.mit.edu/Hello/" is not.
    • Anonymous citations are not accepted.
  6. Supplemental information will not be accepted.
Failure to comply with any of these requirements will result in an automatic rejection of the paper.

Francois Erbsmann Prize

Francois Erbsmann, one of the founders of IPMI, died tragically soon after the first IPMI. In his honor an award is given at each meeting for the best paper presented by a young scientist making his or her first oral IPMI presentation. To be eligible, you must be the first author of the paper, 35 or under, and this should be your first oral presentation at IPMI.
