The maximum number of pages is 10 + 1 references page. Papers will be selected by a single blind (reviewers are anonymous) review process.

Accepted papers will be included in the ICIAP 2015 Conference Proceedings, which will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). Every accepted paper requires that at least one author is registered with regular registration fee and attending the conference.

Authors of ICIAP 2015 papers can find complete instructions of how to format their ICIAP 2015 papers in the following documents:

Additional information can be found in "Springer LNCS - Information for Authors of Computer Science Publications".


Agreements are in progress for the organization of two journal special issues associated to the conference. To this end, selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the Computer Vision and Image Understanding and Pattern Recognition journals for special issues dedicated to ICIAP 2015.
