Submissions should be formatted according to the style guidelines for Computers & Graphics (Elsevier) and should not exceed 12 pages, including figures and references, since all accepted papers will appear in a special issue of the said journal. We strongly recommend using the LaTeX template to format your paper. But we also accept papers formatted by MS Word according to the style guidelines for Computers & Graphics (Elsevier). The file must be submitted in PDF format for the first round of submission.
Please refer to the Computers & Graphics Guide for Authors for format details and LaTeX instructions/template.
Double-Blind Review: The SMI 2018 conference will use a double-blind review process. Consequently, all submissions must be anonymous.
An abstract should be submitted before March 5th at 23:59 UTC/GMT. All papers (maximum 12 pages) should be submitted directly via EasyChair before March 12th at 23:59 UTC/GMT (more details to be released soon). Papers should present previously unpublished, original results that are not simultaneously submitted elsewhere.
All submission will be rigorously peer-reviewed by members of the international program committee. All accepted papers will be published in the journal of Computers & Graphics (Elsevier). Any accepted paper is required to have at least one registered author to attend and present the paper at the conference.
If you have any technical problems on paper submission, please contact the Program Chairs for inquiry.
