Instructions for preparing manuscripts

  • Double Blind Policy: ICVGIP 2021 follows a double blind review system. Authors should not include their names and affiliations in the manuscript or in any supplementary material. Authors should also ensure that their identity is not revealed indirectly (avoid acknowledgements to collaborators, funding agencies, revealing citations to author's previous work or links to websites that identify any of the authors. These may be done in the camera ready version). Manuscripts that violate the double blind policy of the conference will be desk rejected, without review.
  • Concurrent Submission Policy: Any submission to ICVGIP should not have substantial overlap with prior publications or other concurrent submissions. A submission with substantial overlap is defined as the one that shares 20 percent or more material with previous or concurrently submitted publications. The policy does not include submission to Arxiv or technical reports that are put up without any direct peer-review. However, this definition of publication does include peer-reviewed workshop papers, even if they do not appear in a proceedings. Authors are encouraged to contact the Program Chairs about clarifications on borderline cases.
  • Policy on Arxiv and Technical Reports: Note that a technical report (departmental,, etc.) version of the submission that is put up without any form of direct peer-review is NOT considered prior art and need NOT be cited in the submission. These submissions are also excluded from the purview of double-blind policy.
  • The manuscript must be uploaded as a PDF file. LaTeX is strongly recommended for typesetting. LaTeX template files are available for download at here. Use the word template only in case you are unable to use LaTeX. The maximum allowed file size is 20MB.
  • The manuscript should be at most 8 pages in length (including all text, figures). One additional page may be used for References). Submissions that do not satisfy the length restriction may be desk rejected. Further, authors should ensure that the paper length is commensurate with the content.
  • Optional supplementary material containing images, movies and additional documents can be uploaded as a single .zip archive. The maximum allowed file size is 50MB.
  • All manuscripts must be submitted at the Microsoft CMT submission portal on or before the paper deadline. The portal can be accessed here.

  • The paper ID must be included in the manuscript before uploading it on the portal. Paper ID may be created on CMT by entering the title, abstract, and subject areas.
  • We will have an early decision phase, where each submission will be scrutinized by an Area Chair, who will recommend if it should be assigned to reviewers for a detailed review. Papers that are clearly out of scope or well below acceptance thresholds will be rejected at this stage.
