Policies

Review Process: By submitting a paper to ECCV, the authors agree to the review process and understand that papers are processed by the Toronto system to match each manuscript to the best possible chairs and reviewers.

Confidentiality: The review process of ECCV is confidential. Reviewers are volunteers not part of the ECCV organisation and their efforts are greatly appreciated. The standard practice of keeping all information confidential during the review is part of the standard communication to all reviewers. Misuse of confidential information is a severe professional failure and  appropriate measures will be taken when brought to the attention of ECCV organizers. It should be noted, however, that the organisation of ECCV is not and cannot be held responsible for the consequences when reviewers break confidentiality.

Double blind review: ECCV reviewing is double blind, in that authors do not know the names of the area chair/reviewers of their papers, and the area chairs/reviewers cannot, beyond reasonable doubt, infer the names of the authors from the submission and the additional material. Avoid providing information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g., titles in the movies, or attached papers). Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors. Violation of any of these guidelines may lead to rejection without review. If you need to cite a different paper of yours that is being submitted concurrently to ECCV, the authors should (1) cite these papers, (2) argue in the body of your paper why your ECCV paper is non trivially different from these concurrent submissions, and (3) include anonymized versions of those papers in the supplemental material.

Note that we will be actively checking for plagiarism.

Dual/Double Submissions: By submitting a manuscript to ECCV, authors acknowledge that it has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in any peer-reviewed venue including journal, conference or workshop. Furthermore, no paper substantially similar in content has  been or will be submitted to a journal, another conference or workshop during the review period (March 14, 2016 – July 1, 2016). The authors also attest that they did not submit substantially similar submissions to ECCV 2018. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection.
The goals of the dual submission policy are (i) to have exciting new work be published for the first time at ECCV, and (ii) to avoid duplicating the effort of reviewers.
Our policy is based upon the following particular definition of “publication”. A publication, for the purposes of the dual submission policy, is defined to be a written work longer than four pages that was submitted for review by peers for either acceptance or rejection, and, after review, was accepted. In particular, this definition of publication does not depend upon whether such an accepted written work appears in a formal proceedings or whether the organizers declare that such work “counts as a publication”.
Note that such a definition does not consider an arXiv.org paper as a publication because it cannot be rejected. It also excludes university technical reports which are typically not peer reviewed. However, this definition of publication does include peer-reviewed workshop papers, even if they do not appear in a proceedings, if their length is more than 4 pages including citations. Given this definition, any submission to ECCV should not have substantial overlap with prior publications or other concurrent submissions.
As a rule of thumb, the ECCV submission should contain no more than 20 percent of material from previous publications. Authors are encouraged to contact the Program Chairs about clarifications on borderline cases.
Note that a Technical Report (departmental, arXiv.org, etc.) version of the submission that is put up without any form of direct peer-review is NOT considered prior art and should NOT be cited. Likewise, mentioning a work under review in a presentation is NOT considered a violation.
Please note that the acceptance of the paper to the ECCV requires that at least one of the authors registers for the conference and present the paper there.
Accepted papers will be published by Springer (with appropriate copyrights) electronically up to three weeks prior to the main conference. Please make sure to discuss this issue with your legal advisors as it pertains to public disclosure of the contents of the papers submitted.
