Regular papers will be reviewed by members of the
review panel, assessed for quality and best means of presentation. Communications
will be assessed for quality and, if accepted, will be for poster presentation
only. The submission and review of papers for MICCAI 2004 will be conducted
We strongly encourage authors to respect the three
Due to the large size of the Scientific Review Committee (more than
120 researchers from around the world) and the diversity of operating
systems they use (including Windows, Mac-OS, UNIX, and LINUX) we are
using the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) for submission
and review. If you do not have a converter, please visit Adobe
to purchase a converter or to use their free trial, or visit www.pdf995.com.
LINUX/UNIX users should use their local ps2pdf converter or GSview.
Other formats will automatically be rejected by the paper-management
system. Papers may be regular (up to 8 pages, including all references,
tables, and figures) or communications (up to 2 pages).
We expect to publish the proceedings as Lecture Notes in Computer
Science by Springer. You must use the templates available on the
website to prepare your paper.
Authors should be aware that colour figures are extremely expensive
to reproduce in the proceedings (350 Euros per page). To ensure a fair
review, if they are submitted in colour, they must agree to pay in full
at the time the final version of the paper is submitted.
Papers not complying with these rules will be removed from the reviewing
When writing your paper, keep in mind that your submission
will be evaluated according to some important criteria like:
||Relevance to the MICCAI community
||Originality of the work
|| Clarity of the presentation
|| Solidity of the methods
||Soundness and persuasion of results
and discussions especially with respect to validation issues
||Clinical relevance of the work
