2017 MICCAI workshop proceedings will be published in a joint LNCS volume by the workshop organising committeee.

Paper Submission Guidelines

We invite submissions up to 10 pages in length in the LNCS style (see paper formatting guidelines for details). These should be submitted electronically via the CMT system (link above).

Papers will be double blindly reviewed by a set of expert reviewers and assessed for quality of work and presentation. Emphasis will be placed on novel methodological approaches and interpretability with respect to the medical problem, while results should demonstrate proof-of-concept and illustrate the merits of the approach. We invite submissions for methods that cover the full scope of medical image analysis: segmentation, registration, classification, reconstruction, atlas construction, tractography, population analysis and advanced structural or functional modelling (such as advanced diffusion MR, network-based analysis and g-ratio imaging), but there must be an application to younger cohorts or to the long term outcomes of perinatal conditions. A selection of interesting high quality papers will be chosen for oral presentation.

Anonymity

The authors need to be in compliance with the following anonymity guidelines:
- Author and institutional information needs to be removed from the author list on the title page, as well as on all paper headers.
- Clues directly identifying any of the authors need to be removed from the main text.
- Every reference to work by the authors must be made anonymous, either by listing the authors as "Anonymous” or by citing it in the third person.
-
Failure to comply to the above requirements will result in the automatic rejection of the paper.

Submitting your final camera ready paper

Only authors with accepted papers should prepare a final camera ready paper.
Papers must meet the following 3 conditions in order to appear in the proceedings of FIFI 2017:

- Authors should address any reviewer comments.

- Conflict of interests should be included in the acknowledgements section and disclosed in any presentation of the work at PIPPI/FIFI.
- At least one author of the paper should be registered to the workshop.

The authors should upload to the CMT website a zipped folder containing:
- The camera ready paper, i.e. if using latex provide all source files and original figures necessary to build the paper, if using word provide the paper as a single word document.
- A pdf file (300 words max) containing a list of all revisions and changes made in the revised manuscript.
- The zip file should be named FIFI2017_PaperID.zip, e.g. FIFI2017_10.zip, where 10 is your paper ID number)).
