Paper Submission Format

A complete paper must be submitted in camera-ready format with no more than 8 pages in length. Papers accepted for the conference will be allocated 6 pages in the proceedings, with the option of purchasing up to 2 extra pages. Papers should be submitted in the length and format intended for final publication. Specifically, submitted papers should have a maximum of 8 pages and should adhere to the formatting guidelines below. This page limit will be strictly enforced. Papers with more than 8 pages will be rejected without review.

The paper format must follow the standard IEEE 2-column format of single-spaced text in 10 point Times Roman (or closely resembling), with 12 point interline space. All printed material, including illustrations, must be kept within a print area of 6-7/8 inches (17.5 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.5 cm) high. A detailed description of the format is given in the IEEE Author Guidelines. We have prepared a simple LaTex template that may assist you in meeting this format.

All reviewing will be double blind, so the paper must not include any information which allows the authors to be identified. For example, this might require that some references to the authors' previous work be left blank. This is not optional. Papers that provide obvious identifying information may be rejected without review.

Please note that CVPR does not allow dual submissions to other conferences. If such submissions are discovered, papers will be removed from the conference even though they have been accepted.

Electronic Submission Process

All paper submissions will be electronic via this website. The electronic submission system is here.

New for CVPR 2003: Author Response to Reviewer Comments

Authors of all submitted papers will have the opportunity to view the (anonymous) reviews for their papers and submit a brief 'rebuttal' statement prior to the CVPR Area Chairs' Meeting where final decisions will be made. Note that the time window where such statements can be submitted will be limited to 4 days, as the schedule will be tight.

Important Deadlines & Dates

While brief extensions to the CVPR final submission deadline have sometimes been given in the past, the timing this year is tight because of the added reviewing phase(s) and because of coordination with the ICCV 2003 submission deadline. As a result, there will be absolutely NO deadline extensions granted.
