Final Submission

Deadline June 14, 20042004

Information for authors
The review phase of MICCAI 2004 is now complete: all submitted papers have now been reviewed, and authors notified of their paper's acceptance status. Authors of accepted papers now have 2 actions to complete: the final paper submission and the prepayment of registration. For technical and financial reasons, these must be performed through distinct websites.


We are now accepting the final submissions. You must log in using your unique paper number and password for each accepted contribution and go to 'submissions in progress'.

Please read the following information before proceeding to the online submission site:

Accepted papers must be submitted electronically for publication by June 14, 2004. Please consult the Springer website for authors and the editors instruction sub-page for answers to common technical questions. However, please submit your contribution via the MICCAI Final Paper Submission website, as the Springer website is for information only. Papers that do not respect the page limits (8 pages for full papers and 2 pages for short communications) and margin widths in the Springer templates will not be included in the proceedings. For papers that did not conform to these standards at the time of initial submission, it is particularly important that they now be re-formatted.

The final program will be available on July 7, 2004. Authors will then receive detailed presentation instructions.

In addition to the PDF file that you upload, please create a single file that contains all of the source (input) needed to recreate your contribution. You must create a ZIP, TAR, or GZIP file (archive) of the source and provide it to us via the Final Submission Website. If you used LaTeX or TeX, please have in your archive the TEX files for the text and PS or EPS files for figures, the final DVI file, and the final PS file. When generating the PS file please avoid using the option "reverse order". Make sure that the electronic text is identical to that in your hard copy submission. If you have used another word-processing system, e.g., WORD, please have in your archive the RTF versions of the pages of your contribution. Again, your contribution must conform to the Springer requirements for the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Please be sure that you do not have page numbers for your contribution, as we will number them in the proceedings.

Please note that your total submission size cannot exceed 10.0 MB (including your paper and any additional material).

In summary, and no later than June 14, you should send:

  • On the paper submission website, we ask you:

    1) To submit a final version of your paper, with:

      • the pdf file,
      • the single file that contains all of the source (input) needed to recreate your contribution.

  • 2) To select the presenting author. Please note that:

      • By June 23, the presenting author MUST pre-pay registration and MUST be co-author of the paper in order for your paper to appear in the proceedings, and
      • for the paper to be considered for a Student Paper award, the presenting author MUST BE THE FIRST AUTHOR and of course must be a student whose work constitutes the main contributions of the paper.

Please submit your final paper electronically online here.

  • In parallel, as part of the final publication process, and no later than June 14, and should send to:

Attn: Valerie Lecomte
IRISA, Campus de Beaulieu
35042 Rennes Cedex, FRANCE
Email :

3) a single-sided paper copy of the final version of your contribution;

4) an extra copy of the first page of your paper, with the paper number clearly marked on the top right hand corner;

5) a signed Copyright Form. On the copyright form, identify the Proceedings as: "LNCS -MICCAI 2004, Saint Malo, France, September 2004, Christian Barillot, David Haynor and Pierre Hellier (Eds)";

6) the name of the presenting author (with registration number if available)

7) the payment for Color pages (if applicable):

      • You should be aware that color figures are extremely expensive to reproduce in the proceedings (350€ per page) and, to ensure that they are published in color, we must ask for payment in full at the time the final version of the paper is submitted. A PDF payment form is available here and should be sent along with the copyright form. Please "flatten" all images to black and white in your electronic files, unless you require them to be published in color.
