DAGM GCPR addresses recent advances in theory, methodology, and applications of pattern recognition, machine learning, and computer vision. Authors are invited to submit high-quality papers presenting original research. Submitted papers will be reviewed based on the criteria of originality, soundness, empirical evaluation, and presentation.

Submission Deadline: July 10, 2020 — Call for Papers as pdf.


  • Image/video processing, analysis, and computer vision
  • Machine learning and pattern recognition
  • Mathematical foundations, statistical data analysis and models
  • Computational photography and confluence of vision and graphics
  • Biomedical image processing and analysis
  • Document analysis
  • Biometrics
  • Applications

We especially invite submissions for these Special Tracks, which are chaired and reviewed explicitly by experts from the respective fields:

  • Computer vision systems and applications
    (Chairs: Bodo Rosenhahn, Carsten Steger)
  • Pattern recognition in the life- and natural sciences
    (Chairs: Joachim Denzler, Xiaoyi Jiang)
  • Photogrammetry and remote sensing
    (Chairs: Helmut Mayer, Uwe Sörgel)

From all GCPR 2020 submissions the best papers will be invited to contribute to a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV).

Submission Instructions

The DAGM GCPR 2020 proceedings to be published in the Springer LNCS series will include all accepted papers under the condition that at least one of the authors completes a registration to the conference. Authors should take into account the following rules:

  • Submission Deadline (both paper and supplementary): July 10, 2020 at 23:59 CET (GMT+1).
  • All papers have to be written in English and have to conform with the Springer LNCS format.
  • The paper length is limited to 12 pages (there is no page limit for references).
  • All papers have to be submitted as a single PDF file. The authors are requested to make sure that all fonts are embedded in the PDF file.
  • DAGM GCPR reviewing is double blind. Please avoid any information that may identify the authors. See Section 2 of the sample paper for detailed information.
  • If you are a Master student you might be eligible for the Best Master’s Thesis Award or a travel grant of the Young Researchers Forum. Please visit the DAGM Young Researcher Forum website for more information. Contrary to the instructions on the website please send the following as a single zip file per email to dagm-gcpr-2020-pc@googlegroups.com rather than submitting them as part of the supplementary material:
    • a PDF version of the Master’s thesis,
    • a copy of the Master’s certificate,
    • a declaration stating that the contents of the submission correspond to the Master’s thesis (Word template),
    • a letter of the advisor supporting the submission and stating that the thesis is excellent.
  • From all DAGM GCPR 2020 submissions the best papers will be invited to contribute to a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV).

See the sample paper for more information. Papers that do not conform with the above guidelines will be rejected without reviewing.

Dual/Double Submission Policy: The goals of GCPR are to publish exciting new work for the first time and to avoid duplicating the effort of reviewers.

By submitting a manuscript to GCPR, authors acknowledge that it has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in any peer-reviewed venue including journal, conference or workshop, or archival forum. Furthermore, no publication substantially similar in content has been or will be submitted to this or another conference, workshop, or journal during the review period. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection, and will be reported to the other venue to which the submission was sent.

A publication, for the purposes of this policy, does not consider an arXiv.org paper as a publication because it cannot be rejected. It also excludes university technical reports which are typically not peer reviewed.


If you have questions, please contact us per email to dagm-gcpr-2020-pc@googlegroups.com .

Author Kit

  • The author kit provides a LaTeX2e template for submissions, and a sample 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), please see Section 3 of the sample paper for formatting instructions or refer to this Springer site.
  • Author kit (zip file)

We have updated the author kit. The initial author kit stated that the page limit for the references is 2 pages. There is no page limit for references for submissions, which is now clarified in the author kit.

Submission System

Papers are submitted through Microsoft CMT.

  • If you have not used the CMT system for any other conference, you will have to create an account. Then, you can click again on our link and find this conference under “All Conferences” by simply using “DAGM GCPR” (the filter box where you can enter the keyword is at the top right corner).
  • Please note that CMT does not automatically send submission confirmation email to authors. On the “Submission Summary” page after paper submission, there is an “Email” icon with a drop-down option on the upper right-hand corner. The drop-down menu shows 2 options: “Send Email to Me” and “Send Email to All Authors”. Authors can also login to their console to verify their submission.
  • The supplementary material can only be uploaded after the paper submission. The related option “Upload Supplementary Material” is available in the author console. The supplementary deadline is the same as the paper deadline.
