Paper Submission Guidelines

Submission, Review and Publication Process


The workshop submission and reviewing process will use EasyChair.

The GREC organizing committee has decided to significantly change their submission and review process, in order to provide a more coherent and integrated timeline with respect to ICDAR and its related events.

GREC 2013 will be introducing an on-the-fly review process, starting reviewing papers as they arrive, and providing feedback to their authors immediately after the review is completed. We therefore invite authors to submit as early as possible as to spread the reviewing effort by the program committee. We expect that using this approach, and provided submissions will not peak unreasonably at some point in the process, the following timing will be kept :

  1. Authors are invited submit full paper (2 to 6 pages) May 15.
  2. Sumbitted papers undergo an immediate single-blind review process, and authors are notified of their acceptance as soon as the review is completed (at the latest by June 1, 2013).
  3. Camera-ready papers are expected to be sent in 2 weeks after their notification of acceptance or, at the latest by June 16, 2013.

The GREC 2013 Program Committee will strictly enforce the IAPR Statement of Ethics.

Author Instructions and Paper Format (for Workshop submission)

Authors are invited to submit their work using the IEEE format, as used for the ICDAR 2013 conference. Other formats are also accepted, as long as they respect the general layout: double-column, 10pt principal font size.


Important notice: authors should be advised that accepted papers are distributed as a workshop booklet but are not published as proceedings. The review process will focus on how the topic and paper quality fit the overall workshop objectives and how they can have a contribution to the debates and exchanges during the workshop sessions. Acceptance of the paper for presentation at the workshop does not automatically guarantee publication in the LNCS post-conference proceedings.

LNCS Post-Conference Proceedings

All papers presented at the workshop (except those explicitely identified by the Program Committee as being out of scope) are entitled to be extended and revised, and submitted for review and possible publication in a GREC 2013 LNCS Volume. In some cases, the Program Committee will give explicit indications or require particular remarks to be taken into account before submission.

LNCS submission deadline is November 2013.

The extended papers undergo a full single-blind review process.

Acceptation notifications will be communicated to the authors in January 2014.

Author Instructions and Paper Format (for Post-Conference Proceedings only)

Authors should follow the LNCS guidelines for both submission processes.


GREC 2013 is bound to the IAPR Ethical Guidelines.

Authors submitting to GREC 2013 expicitely accept these guidelines.

The IAPR requires that all authors wishing to present a paper declare that the paper is substantially original; that is, the manuscript as a whole, or for the most part, is novel, has not been published in (or even submitted to) any journals and has not been presented at any other conferences. If previous versions of the manuscript were published or presented, appropriate references must be given and substantial justification for presentation of the current version must be presented.

The IAPR strictly prohibits any plagiarism; that is, the work of others must not be "borrowed" and presented as the authors' own work, regardless of the size of the borrowed portion.

The IAPR frowns upon "no-show behavior" at IAPR-related conferences and workshops, meaning that an author registers to make a presentation but does not show up for it. If such behavior is unavoidable due to urgent and unexpected personal matters, the author is strongly urged to notify the event organizer of the situation as soon as possible. If prior notification is impossible, the organizer should be advised after the fact of the reason for the author's absence.

The IAPR retains the rights to eliminate any papers in violation of these Requirements and to take appropriate action against individuals repeatedly violating these Requirements and assumes no responsibility for any resulting loss of reputation or opportunity of such individuals or for any inconvenience related to the future work of such individuals.
