### General Information

• ICME 2018 requires authors to submit the title, list of authors, a brief abstract of about 100 to 150 words for each camera-ready paper.
• Make sure that the abstract, authors' names and affiliations in the submission system are identical to that shown in the camera-ready paper.
• Authors are required to use the new Camera-Ready Templates.

### Requirements

• Regular, Special Session, and Workshop papers must be no longer than 6 pages, including all text, figures, and references. Demo, Industry Track, and Grand Challenge papers are limited to 1, 4, and 4 pages, respectively. All papers MUST be formatted according to the Camera-Ready Templates given in Microsoft Word or LaTeX.
• Regular and Special Session Papers must be submitted by April 13, 2018 . Demo, Industry Track, Grand Challenge, and Workshop papers must be submitted by May 11, 2018 . There will be no exceptions.
• Accepted papers MUST be presented at the conference by one of the authors. Under extraordinary unplanned circumstances, a qualified substitute may present on the authors’ behalf, with the technical program chairs’ permission. The presenter MUST register for the conference at one of the non-student rates offered, and MUST register before the deadline given for author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of your paper from the conference proceedings and program.

### Preparation of the Paper and Submission

#### Document Formatting

• All submissions must be in letter-sized PDF.
• All fonts and subsets must be embedded. Times New Roman font is strongly encouraged.
• Detailed examples about the paper format using LaTeX and Microsoft Word are available in this Guidelines.

The following style files and templates are available for users of LaTeX and Microsoft Word:

We recommend that you use the Word file or LaTeX files to produce your document, since they have been set up to meet the formatting guidelines listed above. When using these files, double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the letter-size paper layout (8.5 inch X 11 inch). The LaTeX environment files specify suitable margins, page layout, text, and a bibliography style.

In particular, with LaTeX, there are cases where the top-margin of the resulting Postscript or PDF file does not meet the specified parameters. In this case, you may need to add a \topmargin=0mm command just after the \begin{document} command in your .tex file. The spacing of the top margin is not critical, as the page contents will be adjusted on the proceedings. The critical dimensions are the actual width and height of the page content.

The following copyright clearance code notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page of each paper:
