Papers

This page covers paper submissions, please refer to the workshops page for submission details for workshops. All submissions will be handled electronically via the conference’s CMT Website https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ECCV2014/.

Please refer for detailed information to the author instructions and frequently asked questions:

Author responsibilities

By submitting a manuscript to ECCV 2014, authors

  • agree to the ECCV 2014 review process,
  • agree to abide by all ECCV 2014 policies regarding double-blind reviewing, double submissions and conflicts of interest, and
  • agree that if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the paper there. This implies payment of a registration fee.
  • agree that the paper is transferred to the Toronto Matching system service to
    help in the paper assignment process.

Double-blind reviewing

ECCV 2014 reviewing is double blind, in that authors do not know the names of the area chairs/reviewers of their papers, and area chairs/reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Authors must not provide any information that may identify the authors in the body of the paper, in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs), in the supplemental material (e.g., titles in the movies, or attached papers), or elsewhere. Authors must not provide links to websites that may identify them. More detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity will be given in due time. Violation of these guidelines can lead to rejection without review.

Dual/Double Submissions

By submitting a manuscript to ECCV 2014, the authors guarantee that

  • the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in any journal, conference, workshop, or archival peer-reviewed forum,
  • no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper is under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the ECCV 2014 review period (March 7 to June 17 2014), to another conference, workshop, or journal, and
  • authors did not submit substantially similar submissions to ECCV 2014.

Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection. If there are papers that may appear to violate any of the above conditions or the author is unsure about the extent of the overlap, it is the authors’ responsibility to (1) cite these papers (preserving anonymity, as described in the detailed author instructions that will be provided shortly), (2) argue in the body of their paper why the ECCV 2014 submission is non trivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (3) include anonymized versions of those submissions as supplemental material.

Note that a Technical Report (departmental, arxiv.org, etc.) that is disseminated without any form of direct peer review is NOT considered a publication. Likewise, mention of the work under review in a presentation is NOT considered a violation.

We will actively check for plagiarism.

Conflicts of interest

Detailed instructions on registering institutional conflicts will be given in due time. If a paper is found to have an undeclared or incorrect institutional conflict, the paper may be rejected without review.

Confidentiality

ECCV 2014 reviewing is considered confidential. All reviewers, area chairs and program chairs are required to treat every manuscript they review as a confidential document and not to share or distribute materials under review for any reason other than to facilitate the reviewing of the submitted work. Reviewers and area chairs are obligated to remove or destroy them after review.

By submitting a paper to ECCV 2014, authors understand that papers may be processed by the Toronto Paper Matching System to help with matching each manuscript to the best possible chairs and reviewers.

Publication date

Accepted papers will be published by Springer (with appropriate copyrights) electronically up to three weeks prior to the main conference, i.e. from 16 August 2014 onwards. Please make sure to discuss this issue with your legal advisors as it pertains to public disclosure of the contents of the papers submitted.

Paper length

Papers submitted for review should be complete. The length should match that intended for final publication. Papers accepted for the conference will be allocated 14 pages (plus references) in the proceedings. Papers with more than 14 pages (excluding references) will be rejected without review.
