11th Int'l Symposium on Image and Signal Processing and Analysis (ISPA 2019)

23-25 September 2019, Dubrovnik, Croatia

Instructions for Authors

Submitted papers must report original unpublished work and should be prepared according to these instructions for authors.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. Review is single-blind, i.e. the names of the reviewers are hidden from the author. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for the paper to be included in the ISPA Proceedings. The ISPA Proceedings will be published in electronic format only which will be distributed during the meeting. The ISPA Proceedings will be published in the IEEEXplore Digital Library. Accepted papers which are not presented at the conference will be excluded from the IEEEXplore Digital Library.

All accepted papers must be presented at the symposium by one author or by qualified proxy. There are two presentation options: oral presentation (20 minutes including question and answer period) or poster presentation. The preferred method of presentation for accepted papers may be chosen during the final paper upload process. The format and length of papers appearing in the proceedings book are the same for both oral and poster presentations.

Paper Formatting Instructions

Language of the paper must be English. The length of paper is limited to a maximum of SIX A4 pages. These six A4 pages should include ALL the contents of the paper, including abstract, figures, references, etc.

When referencing existing works if a referenced work has a DOI then include it at the end of a particular reference as https://doi.org/DOI (see Crossref DOIs in references, Option 1).

The papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format and should adhere to the IEEE PDF Specification for IEEE Xplore.

Please make sure that the generated PDF documents:

  1. have no more than SIX pages,
  2. have A4 page size,
  3. have all used fonts embedded and subset,
  4. have no content written in the margins (18mm top, 12mm right, 12mm left and 25mm bottom),
  5. have page numbers omitted, and
  6. list DOIs in references.


Submitted papers should follow the IEEE conference proceedings templates (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html) for double column A4 paper size. Note: Currently available A4 Microsoft Word Template updated on May 2018 when opened in certain versions of LibreOffice has an incorrect upper margin of 0.95cm instead of 1.9cm.
