The Proceedings of ICIAP 2013, Naples (Italy), will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, indexed as peer-reviewed publication in the Web of Science. The length of the papers is max 10 pages (with references included; always an even number of pages). Each accepted paper requires that at least one author is registered with regular registration fee and attend the conference.

Best Papers awarded at ICIAP 2013 for young authors, after extensions and further revisions, will be published in a special section of Pattern Recognition Letters. Extended versions of best selected papers will be considered for publication in special issues of Information Science and Pattern Recognition Letters journals by Elsevier.


Camera Ready Submission

The submission deadline for final manuscripts and copyright forms is June 28, 2013. Please, check the reviewer comments and apply any suggested amendment to your paper, submitting a Summary of Changes file.

Final manuscripts should be prepared using LaTeX2e and the author kit provided by Springer.

It is possible, but discouraged, to use other systems for the preparation of papers, e.g. MS-Word. Author kits may be found on the Springer LNCS site, under “Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes …”.

Here is a checklist of items to be submitted through the ICIAP 2013 Submission/Reviewing Website (, using the credentials already received for your initial submission:

  1. The final sources (.TEX or .RTF files, EPS files for all figures), including further style files and fonts you may have used.
  2. A final PDF corresponding exactly to the final sources. Papers may be up to 10 pages long and any additional page will be separately charged;
  3. A Summary of Changes file in PDF format;
  4. A scanned version (in PDF format) of the ICIAP 2013 copyright form, signed by one author on behalf of all of the other authors of the paper;
  5. A text file named “contact.txt” containing the following information:
    1. The name and e-mail address of the contact author who will check the proof of the paper;
    2. A suggestion for an abbreviated running head, if appropriate;
    3. Information about the correct representation of authors' names: first name, middle name initial(s), last name, email address, affiliation (name of institute as it should appear in the conference programme). Please separate these 5 items by “,”.

Pack the full source of your camera-ready paper in a ZIP file and upload it to CMT. The maximum file size is set to 10 Mbytes. If the file size exceeds this limit, please send us a link to the ZIP file via email.



Paper Submission

Authors must follow the LNCS Springer's guidelines and technical instructions for the preparation of your contribution as reported at the webpage. For your convenience, you may download the ICIAP2013 Author Kit. Papers will be selected by a single blind (reviewers are anonymous) review process based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.
