Final Manuscript Submission

There are two sets of guidelines for the FG 2011 final manuscript submission:

  • All submissions must be verified using IEEE PDF eXpress to ensure compatibility. Step-by-step instructions on how to use IEEE eXpress can be found here.
  • All submissions must be accompanied with an IEEE Copyright transfer form available here using the account name and password you used to submit your paper for reviewing.

Paper Submissions: deadline has passed

Submissions to Face and Gesture 2011 should have no substantial overlap with any other paper already submitted or published, or to be submitted during the FG 2011 review period. All authors of a paper should be aware of the paper being submitted to FG 2011. All persons who have made any substantial contribution to the work should be listed as authors, and all listed authors should have made some substantial contribution to the work. If a paper is accepted, it is assumed that an author will register and attend the conference to present the paper. (Papers that are not presented will not go into IEEE Xplore.)

The reviewing process for Face and Gesture 2011 will be "double blind", and so the submitted version of the paper should be appropriately anonymized to not reveal the authors or authors' institutions. Instructions for anonymizing your paper can be found here.

The revised submission deadline for FG 2011 is October 13, 2010 (at the end of the day - midnight PDT). The submissions process will be handled though a CMT page available here. Submissions may be in doc, docx, or pdf format, and are limited to a 5MB file size. In place of entering your paper's abstract on the CMT Abstract box, you are asked to provide a 50-word (maximum) statement as to why you consider your work to advance the state-of-art in automated face and gesture recognition.

Supplementary material (images, video, etc.) may optionally be submitted with papers, but be sure to maintain anonymity, including the file properties or other hidden text. The supplemental materials will not be part of the conference proceedings, so they are only there to aid the reviewing process. Reviewers are not required to view the supplemental material (though most reviewers are likely to do so), so any information critical to understanding the work should be in the main paper.

FG 2011 will be using the IEEE PDF eXpress for enforcing the requirements for papers to appear in IEEE Xplore. The final versions of all papers accepted for publication must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specifications.

Summary of steps for submission of papers for review:

  • Prepare your manuscripts as per the IEEE specification. The Word template can be downloaded from here and the LaTeX package can be downloaded from here. General info and the templates can also be found on the IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings page.
  • Carefully proof-read your submission.
  • Submissions may be up to eight pages in conference paper format. Papers longer than six pages will be subject to a page fee for the extra pages (two max).
  • Register at the FG 2011 CMT website. Upload the abstract and pdf of the paper by October 13, 2010. The pdf file size should not exceed 5 MB.
