The review process is single blind as to fit with ICPR. We appreciate that because of the proximity of the ICPR deadline, authors will have a limited time to undertake the additional work to develop new papers for submission SSPR. We are happy to consider papers that report work that is partially overlapped with an ICPR submission provided that:
a) The SSPR papers contain at least 50% of additional material that is substantially different from the ICPR (or previously submitted) paper. This might include a) additional theory, proofs etc, b) additional experimentation or detailed comparison, c) deeper analysis. It does not include ephemeral or insubstantial material, such as additional literature review, discussion or bibliography.
b) The authors declare the existence of a related ICPR paper ID and title in the online submission system, and briefly summarize the differences in the comments box on submission.
If we detect substantially similar work that does not follow these guidelines, we will automatically reject it.
PDF in LNCS style 9 pages.Final camera-ready due of the accepted papers is 3rd September(midnight GMT).If the final paper would not be uploaded until 3rd September(midnight of GMT), the paper would not be contained in the final workshop proceedings volume from Springer-Verlag.
