DAGM GCPR | 2010

32th Annual Symposium of the German Association for Pattern Recognition, Darmstadt


Submission system

Submissions for DAGM 2010 and the Young Researchers Forum are now closed.

Camera Ready Version

Camera ready papers are due July 11th.

To prepare the camera version of your paper, please follow the general author guidelines below. If you use LaTeX to prepare your paper, please use the same template as for your submission. Make sure to appropriately replace the provided placeholders in the template with the list of authors and institutes, and also provide an author list and running title for the page headers (abbreviated as necessary). Also make sure to comment out the \DAGMreviewversion command to obtain a non-review version. For more information, also regarding other document preparation systems including Microsoft Office, please refer to Springer's LNCS author instructions.

Papers prepared in LaTeX need to be accompanied by all source files necessary to compile the paper (.tex and .bib files, figures, as well as any additional style files that you may have used). Please also include a PDF of the final version as a reference. Please submit all files in a single ZIP or TAR.GZ file. If you use Microsoft Word for preparing your paper, please submit the paper as DOC/DOCX or RTF file along with a PDF for reference. Please also upload these files as part of a single ZIP or TAR.GZ file.

Every paper requires a copyright form to be submitted by the authors.

Also note that submitting a camera ready version implies that one of the authors will register for DAGM 2010 before August 13th and attend the conference to present the paper. The registration website will be available shortly.

All questions related to the camera ready version should be directed to the DAGM2010 chairs.

Author instructions

Paper Submission

Authors should take into account the following:
  • All papers must be written in English and submitted in pdf format.
  • Submissions will be rejected without review if they:
    • contain more than 10 pages;
    • violate the double-blind policy;
    • violate the dual-submission policy;
    • violate the formatting instructions in a significant way.
  • Authors will have the opportunity to submit up to 30MB of supporting material.
These points are covered below, with more detailed instructions being given in the example file dagm2010submission.pdf.
Author Kit

The author kit provides a LaTeX2e template for submissions, and an example paper to demonstrate the format. Please refer to this example for detailed formatting instructions. If you intend to use something other than LaTeX to prepare your paper (e.g. MS Word), you may refer to this Springer site. A paper ID will be allocated to you during submission. Please replace the asterisks in the example paper with your paper's own ID before uploading your file.
Instructions and Policies

Paper length: A complete paper should be submitted in camera-ready format. The maximum allowed paper length is 10 pages.

Double blind review: DAGM reviewing is double blind: authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Please read Section 2 of the example paper for detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity. Also remember to avoid information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgements (e.g. co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g. titles in the movies, or attached papers).

Dual submission: By submitting a manuscript to DAGM the author(s) assert(s) 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 DAGM 2010 review period to either a journal or a conference.

If there are any papers that may appear to the reviewers to violate this condition, then it is your responsibility to (1) cite these papers - preserving anonymity as described in Section 2 of the example paper dagm2010submission.pdf, (2) argue in the body of your paper why your DAGM paper is nontrivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (3) include anonymized versions of those papers in the supplemental material.

Supplemental material: Authors may optionally upload supplemental material. Typically, this material might include result videos that cannot be included in the main paper, anonymized related submissions to other conferences and journals, and appendices or technical reports containing extended proofs and mathematical derivations that are not essential for understanding of the paper. Note that the contents of the supplemental material should be referred to appropriately in the paper, and that reviewers are not obliged to look at the submitted material.

All supplemental material must be zipped or tarred into a single file. There is a 30MB limit on the size of this file. The deadline for supplemental material is three days after the main paper deadline.
