Camera-ready Guidelines

Camera-ready material must be submitted by 9 July, 2019. As described below, all the files must be uploaded to the submission site as a single zipped file of 30 MB or less (CMT system limit).

For the paper to be included in the conference proceedings:

  • the authors must address the minor changes provided by the comments from reviewers and the Area Chair; Please include a file entitled ‘Changes after review’ with a bulleted list of the modifications to the paper.
  • the camera-ready copy with all figures, movies, and the signed copyright form must be uploaded to the paper submission system within the single zip file;
  • each paper should be associated with a unique MICCAI 2019 registration (first authors can present multiple papers with a single registration only if they are first authors on all papers).

Preparing Final Version

Please ensure the revised paper addresses minor comments and requests raised by the reviewers and the Area Chairs. You also will be asked to submit a response (use file name ‘Changes after review’) that explains how you addressed the comments on the submission form in the system.

The proceedings will be prepared in full color. The maximum number of pages for your final paper is 8, including abstract and references. Note that since Springer will enforce their formatting rules, it is extremely important that you strictly adhere to the guidelines (i.e., no spaces, no modified margins, etc.). The program chairs reserve the right to reject papers that are over the 8-page limit in the final version, or to reject those that have modified formatting commands in the Springer templates.

The proceedings will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) in both electronic and paper versions by Springer. Please read carefully the information for authors from Springer. You must use the LNCS templates (LaTeX2e or Word) available on the Springer website to prepare your paper.

If you use LaTeX, please insert a line % index{Last Name, First Name} for every author of the paper, right after the author{} command. We will use these to create an author index in the proceedings. We need your help to make sure we parse authors’ names into the last name and the first name correctly. This is particularly important for those authors with more than two words in their full names, making such parsing ambiguous.

Please ensure that Springer format for bibliographical references is strictly enforced. This is detailed in section 2.5 of the LNCS author guidelines. This is important, for instance, when citing previous MICCAI proceedings.

The submission site will ask you to upload a single .zip file of your submission. Please zip all your files, including the digital copy of the signed copyright form, and name the .zip file using your paper submission ID (for example:, where 1246 is your paper ID number).

The source files included in the .zip archive must include:

  • If using LaTeX, include LaTeX2e files (*.tex) for the text and PS/EPS/JPG/PDF/PNG files for all figures and movies following the Embedding a video section below. Please use consistent names for your source files: paperXXX.pdf, paperXXX.tex, where XXX is your paper ID;
  • If using Word, simply upload the Word file
  • Any additional style files and fonts you used, together with your source files that are not generally available at CTAN;
  • Final PDF file of the paper (for reference);
  • RTF files if you are using a word-processing system other than LaTeX/TeX;
  • The LNCS copyright form, which can be signed by the corresponding author on behalf of all authors. Conference name, “MICCAI 2019”, and the volume editors’ names are already entered for you. Please scan your signed copyright form and save it as a JPG or PDF file. Copyright forms should only be provided in an electronic format. Form can be downloaded here.

Embedding a video

Embedded Videos in Proceedings Springer now offers authors the option of including embedded videos in the final versions of their papers. Note that these are not included in the initial submission, as only the content of the 8-page submission will be reviewed. The technical requirements are as follows: a resolution of 16:9 or 4:3, a maximum file size of 25 GB, and a minimum duration of 1 second. The following formats are supported: avi, wmv, mp4, mov, m2p, mp2, mpg, mpeg, flv, mxf, mts, m4v, and 3gp. Authors must not violate privacy and confidentiality rules and, as always, permission must be sought for use of third-party content. All types of Electronic Supplementary Material, including videos, should be sent within the authors’ .zip file. If videos are to be embedded, unequivocal instructions as to their positioning must be included, i.e. to which image or text segment it is to be linked. Click here for more information
