SASHIMI 2021: Simulation and Synthesis in Medical Imaging

SASHIMI2021

The SASHIMI 2021 workshop will accept 10-page method- and application-oriented papers (LNCS-Springer format, including references), more details below. Accepted papers will be published in a Lecture Notes in Computer Science volume published by Springer. This year we also accept 2-page demo abstracts (LNCS-Springer format, excluding references). Demo abstracts will not be included in the conference proceedings.

DeadlineJune 25th 29th (23:59 Pacific Time)

Submissions Categories

  • Method-oriented paper: The main emphasis during the review process will be put on the novelty, correctness of the presented method, and proper validation of the results. The authors are expected to submit a full-length paper which will be (upon acceptance) included in the conference proceedings. Select "Method-oriented paper" as label when submitting on OCS. Optionally, the authors of method-oriented papers are welcome to demonstrate their new methods during the demo session (in this case select "Method-oriented paper + Demo" as label when submitting on OCS).
  • Application-oriented paper: The main focus will be put on the novel application of an existing theoretical image synthesis method and the data which the given method is applied to. The data should be described in detail. For new data collected, the collection process should be described (experimental setup, device(s) used, image acquisition parameters, subjects/objects involved, instructions to annotators, methods for quality control). For existing datasets, citations, as well as descriptions if they are not publicly available, should be specified. If public, a link to a downloadable version of the dataset should be included. The authors are expected to submit a full-length paper which will be (upon acceptance) included in the conference proceedings. Select "Application-oriented paper" as label when submitting on OCS. Optionally, the authors of application-oriented papers are welcome to demonstrate their results during the demo session (in this case select "Application-oriented paper + Demo" as label when submitting on OCS).
  • Demo abstract: An already published journal/conference paper or patent may be advertised during the demo session. The authors are expected to submit an extended abstract (max 2 pages of LNCS format excluding references) that will not be included in the conference proceedings. The aim of the abstract will be to draw attention of the participants to some particular method and to demo it. Select "Demo" as label when submitting on OCS.

Paper Submission Guidelines

Guidelines applicable to the method- and application-oriented papers:

  • A double-blind review process will be applied to assess submissions for originality, relevance and significance.
  • Please make sure that you maintain the anonymity of the paper for the review process.
  • Maximum length is 10 pages.
  • Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX (templates also available in Overleaf) or for Word, for the preparation of their papers.
  • We discourage authors to make public on arXiv (or other platforms) their SASHIMI papers prior to the paper acceptance decisions to guarantee a fair, double-blind, review process. Conversely, reviewers are not allowed to attempt to identify authors based on these preprints. Preprints are not considered prior work since they have not been peer-reviewed. Therefore, citations to these papers are not required and reviewers are asked to not penalise a paper that fails to cite a preprint.
  • In case the paper is accepted, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. Note that at this final stage the paper should not be anonymous (i.e. it must include the authors' names and affiliations). Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.

Guidelines applicable to the demo abstracts:

  • A single-blind review process will be applied to assess submissions for quality.
  • Maximum length is 2 pages (without counting references).
  • Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX (templates also available in Overleaf) or for Word, for the preparation of their papers.
