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 the 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. The Publisher provides instructions and templates for LaTeX and Word. 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. See below how to make submissions once you have prepared your manuscript. The online submission form also requires you to provide contact and author details, an abstract, keywords, a submission checklist, a summary of the contribution your paper makes to knowledge and practice, and brief statements on the most methodologically interesting aspects of your paper as well as potential discussions that could be generated by it.
Springer style files that should be used for the submission can be found here: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines
Your manuscript should be no longer than 12 pages (including references). Submissions exceeding this limit will be rejected without review. For review, only the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) version of the paper should be submitted. Citations should include all co-authors of the paper. 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, should be under review at the time of submission or will be submitted during the IPMI 2023 review period. The review process is double-blind.
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 as 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 must be cited in the third person, in a manner that is not traceable to the identity of the authors. For example: "In , Hello and Goodbye have proposed …” is acceptable, whereas "In , we have proposed …” is not. Also, a technical report available via "http://publications.myuniversity.edu/” is acceptable, whereas the personal website "http://people.myuniversity.edu/myName/” is not. Anonymous citations are not accepted. Concurrent arXiv submissions are permissible. However, do not cite your arXiv submission in your IPMI paper, as this would instantly break anonymity.
Failure to comply with any of these requirements will result in an automatic rejection of the paper.
The authors agree that if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors will register for IPMI 2023 and present the paper at IPMI 2023. Please note that the registration fees include accommodation and meals.
Please upload a single zip file by March 31, containing:
This should be uploaded in CMT.
Your uploaded zipped folder needs to contain all source files (LaTeX files, associated style files, figures, bib files etc) as well as the final PDF. Please do not include any older versions of your paper.
Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
You may update your final manuscript to correct for typographical errors, to respond to reviewers' and metareviewers' concerns and to meet Springer LNCS formatting requirements; however, please note your paper was accepted as it is and, as such, you should not introduce any major changes such as updated experimental work. You must follow the IPMI and LNCS formatting guidelines (12 pages maximum including all references and figures; standard page margins, line spacing, and font size).
