Submission Instructions

Author Kit and Submission System

All papers have to be written in English and conform with the Springer LNCS format. Please use the GCPR 2023 author kit. The author kit is based on the Springer’s proceedings LaTeX template, which is also available as an Overleaf template. However, if you use this template, make sure you also use all conference specific settings from the file main-paperID.tex in the author kit.

Papers are submitted via the Microsoft CMT for GCPR 2023, which will open in mid-May for submissions. When you register a paper, you will obtain a paper ID, please make sure to insert it at the appropriate location in the LaTeX template.

Regular Papers

The DAGM GCPR 2023 proceedings to be published in the Springer LNCS series will include all accepted papers under the condition that a paper processing fee is paid for each accepted paper. Authors should take into account the following rules:

  • The paper length is limited to 12 pages excluding references. It is not allowed to modify the margins, font size, or page layout of the template, since Springer needs clean LaTeX source files for the proceedings.
  • 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 policies.

Papers that do not conform with the above guidelines will be rejected without reviewing.

Fast Review Track

Fast review track is now open for all rejected peer reviewed conference and journal papers since 1.06.2022 (rejection date). We also welcome rejections to this GCPR. To obtain suitable submission instructions below, exchange e.g. 'ICCV' with the respective venue name and 'meta-reviews' with 'editor comments' for journal articles.

As for regular papers, the paper length is limited to 12 pages excluding references. It is not allowed to modify the margins, font size, or page layout of the template. Submissions that use the ICCV template will be rejected. Besides any optional supplementary material for the revised paper, the following documents need to be provided as part of the supplementary material:

  • the original unmodified ICCV 2023 submission with ICCV paper ID as PDF
  • the original unmodified ICCV 2023 reviews as PDF (see instructions below)
  • the original unmodified ICCV 2023 meta-review as PDF (see instructions below)
  • a summary of changes as PDF that describes the changes of the original ICCV submission and how the comments of the reviewers have been addressed in the revised paper (see GCPR 2023 author kit for the template).

In order to get the ICCV reviews and meta-review, print them to PDF using CMT. For the reviews, click on “View Reviews”. You will see the title of the ICCV submission, the paper ID of the ICCV submission, and all reviews. From the menu on the top-right, print this to the file reviews.pdf. For the meta-review, click on “View Meta-Reviews” and print it in the same way to the file meta-review.pdf. The summary of changes needs to describe how and where in the revised paper or supplementary material the points of the reviewers have been addressed. Please structure the response by reviewer and go through each point of the reviews. Please ensure that the submission including any supplementary material does not contain any information that may identify the authors. See policies. There are no specific formatting requirements for the summary of changes, but an optional template is provided with the author kit.

By submitting a paper to the Fast Review Track, the authors agree that the submission can be shared with the organizers of ICCV 2023 in order to verify the original ICCV submission and reviews.

Nectar Track

Articles in the Nectar Track are articles that were already published or at least accepted for publication elsewhere in 2022-2023. Hence, they will not be published again in GCPR. We strongly encourage submitting your conference and journal articles from such venues as ICCV, ECCV, CVPR, NeurIPS, ICML, PAMI, IJCV etc. The submission guidelines are as follows:

  • The article must be submitted as a single PDF file in CMT. Ideally, submit the already published paper.
  • As for other tracks, at least one author of the article must be registered at the conference.
  • The submission should not be anonymized, i.e. author names and, possibly, contact information and affiliation should be provided at the title page of the article.
  • Article length is not restricted. Its content must coincide with the content of the published version, although its formatting may differ.
  • Additionally, a readme.txt file with information about venue and publication year must be uploaded. In case of conference publication, please specify also whether it has been accepted to the main conference or to a workshop at the respective conference.
  • Decision regarding presentation form will be taken by the program committee and announced together with final decisions on regular submissions. You will be able to specify your preferences to oral/poster during submission process via CMT.


The goals of DAGM 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 paper as a publication because it cannot be rejected. It also excludes technical reports which are not peer reviewed.

By submitting a paper, the authors agree that the paper is processed by the Toronto Paper Matching System to match each manuscript to the best possible reviewers.
