Please note the upcoming deadline for submission of the final camera ready of your paper and read on to find details about videos and registration for the virtual conference.

In general, ACCV 2020 will use the Mini-Conf web system originally developed for ICLR 2020 and used for ICML 2020, BMVC 2020, etc. Please visit BMVC 2020 website to see how the thumbnail image, the presentation video (SlidesLive), the keywords, and the link to code are used.

Also please check the FAQ list here.

Registration – Deadline October 16th

​All papers will require at least one author to be registered for the conference and to attend the interactive presentations. Please note that we will require one registration per paper in the case of authors of multiple papers.

Camera ready – Deadline October 2nd

Authors must submit a signed Consent to Publish form, through which the copyright of their paper is transferred to Springer. Please download a partially filled template of the form here:

Please fill this form, sign it, and scan it as a single PDF file, named XXXX-copyright.PDF, where XXXX is the four-digit paper ID (zero-padded if necessary). For example, if your paper ID is 24, the filename must be 0024-copyright.pdf. This file will be submitted separately. If you have difficulty printing and/or signing the pdf, please contact the Publication Chairs <>.

You will see that the conference name and the names of the volume editors are entered in advance. Please note that the main conference proceedings and the workshop proceedings have different copyright forms, and make sure you use the correct one. One author may sign on behalf of all of the authors of a particular paper, provided that permission to do so has been accorded by the other authors in advance. We do not accept digital signatures.

If you have any queries regarding copyright, please contact Springer or the Publication Chairs <> well in advance of publication.

Accepted papers will be published by Springer (with appropriate copyrights) electronically after the main conference, but they will be made online at the CVF website approximately one week before the 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, and contact the Publication Chairs if there is any sensitivity on the date of publication.

​How to submit camera ready papers:

Papers are limited to 14 pages, including figures and tables, in the ACCV style. Additional pages containing only cited references are allowed. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use the following templates for the preparation of their papers. Please note that the authors are requested to prepare the camera ready papers in LaTeX (We will not accept camera ready papers in MS Word).

We need all the source files (LaTeX files, style files, special fonts, figures, bib-files) that are required to compile papers, as well as the camera ready PDF. For each paper, one ZIP-file has to be prepared and submitted via the ACCV 2020 Submission Website, using the password you received with your initial registration on that site. The size of the ZIP-file may not exceed the limit of 100 MByte. The ZIP-file has to contain the following:

  • All source files, e.g. LaTeX2e files for the text, PS/EPS or PDF/JPG files for all figures.
  • Make sure to include any further style files and fonts you may have used.
  • References are to be supplied as BBL files to avoid omission of data while conversion from BIB to BBL.
  • Please do not send any older versions of papers. There should be one set of source files and one XXXX.pdf file per paper. Our typesetters require the author-created pdfs in order to check the proper representation of symbols, figures, etc.
  • You may use sub-directories.
  • Make sure to use relative paths for referencing files.
  • Make sure the source you submit compiles.
  • Please upload all the source files, including the camera ready XXXX.pdf, as a single ZIP file called XXXX.ZIP, where XXXX is the zero-padded, four-digit paper ID. Please upload this file (and optionally a supplemental file) in the “File Upload” page.
  • PDF file named XXXX.pdf that has been produced by the submitted source, where XXXX is the four-digit paper ID (zero-padded if necessary). For example, if your paper ID is 24, the filename must be 0024.pdf. This PDF will be used as a reference and has to exactly match the output of the compilation.
  • A PDF file named XXXX-copyright.PDF: a scanned version of the signed copyright form (see above), to be uploaded separately.

If you wish to provide supplementary material, the file name must be in the form XXXX-supp.pdf or, where XXXX is the zero-padded, four-digit paper ID as used in the previous step. Upload your supplemental file on the “File Upload” page as a single PDF or ZIP file of 100 MB in size or less. Only PDF and ZIP files are allowed for supplementary material. You can put anything in this file – movies, code, additional results, accompanying technical reports–anything that may make your paper more useful to readers. If your supplementary material includes video or image data, you are advised to use common codecs and file formats. This will make the material viewable by the largest number of readers (a desirable outcome). ACCV encourages authors to submit videos as an mp4 file with H.264 codec. Authors should refer to the contents of the supplementary material appropriately in the paper.

Check that the upload of your file (or files) was successful either by matching the file length to that on your computer, or by using the download options that will appear after you have uploaded. Please ensure that you upload the correct camera-ready PDF–renamed to XXXX.pdf as described in the previous step as your camera-ready submission. Every year there is at least one author who accidentally submits the wrong PDF as their camera-ready submission.

Springer is the first publisher to implement the ORCID identifier for proceedings, ultimately providing authors with a digital identifier that distinguishes them from every other researcher. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) hosts a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities to these identifiers. This is achieved through embedding ORCID identifiers in key workflows, such as research profile maintenance, manuscript submissions, grant applications and patent applications.

Please see for more details. We encourage all contributing authors to also apply for an individual ORCID-ID at and include these in their paper with \OrcidID command. (If you get an error with \OrcidID, you probably have an older class file; please download the last version of the Author kit for camera ready paper).

For any question related to the publication process, please do not hesitate to contact the Publication Chairs <>.

Please kindly use the checklist below to deal with some of the most frequently encountered issues in ACCV submissions.

  • FILES:
    • My submission package contains ONE compiled pdf file for the camera-ready version.
    • I have ensured that the submission package has all the additional files necessary for compiling the pdf on a standard LaTeX distribution.
    • I have used the correct copyright form (with editor names pre-printed), and a manually signed and scanned PDF is submitted.
    • I have removed all \vspace and \hspace commands from my paper.
    • I have not used \cite command in the abstract.
    • I have read the Springer author guidelines, and complied with them, including the point on providing full information on editors and publishers for each reference in the paper (Author Guidelines – Section 2.8).
    • I have entered a correct \titlerunning{} command and selected a meaningful short name for the paper.
    • I have entered \index{Lastname, Firstname} commands for names that are longer than two words.
    • I have used the same name spelling in all my papers accepted to ACCV and ACCV Workshops.
    • I have not decreased the font size of any part of the paper to fit into 14 pages, I understand Springer editors will remove such commands.
    • (Optional but Recommended) I have inserted the ORCID identifiers of the authors in the paper header (see for more information).
    • All author names, titles, and contact author information is correctly entered in the submission site.
    • The corresponding author e-mail is given.

Keywords – Deadline October 2nd

To help researchers find your paper on the website we ask that authors include a list of up to 10 keywords separated by a semicolon (e.g. “optical flow; motion estimation; constrained optimization;”). These may be truncated so please use short phrases and sort the keywords from most important to least. We advise authors not to use overly generic keywords (e.g. “deep learning”).

IMPORTANT: Please separate only by semicolons “;” and DO NOT use new lines as this breaks the CMT formatting system.

Link to Code – Deadline October 2nd

For reproducibility we encourage authors to include a URL link to publicly available code for their paper that will be included on the conference website.

​Spotlight Video – Deadline October 2nd

​All paper authors are asked to submit a short video that will appear in *spotlight* sessions on the conference website.

The video should be provided as an mp4 file (H.264 codec, up to 1920×1080 resolution) of length up to 1 minute, named XXXX-spotlight.MP4, where XXXX is the four-digit paper ID (zero-padded if necessary). Please note that videos longer than 1 minute or not in a valid mp4 format may be truncated or removed without notice.

The videos will be uploaded to a video streaming platform, and will become public two weeks before the conference.

​Thumbnail – Deadline October 2nd

​All paper authors are asked to submit a small image that will be used as a thumbnail shown along with the paper title and the authors.

The image must be up to 500×250 pixels with white (#FFFFFF) background, named XXXX-thumbnail.PNG, where XXXX is the four-digit paper ID (zero-padded if necessary).

​Presentation video – Deadline October 16th

​All paper authors are asked to prepare a video to be hosted on the website that can be up to 10 minutes in length.

Instructions of how to record and upload the video will be provided by a separate email from our video partner SlidesShare. Please note that we will require specific formatting for the video so whilst it is fine to start preparing slides, please read the video upload instructions carefully before recording your video to ensure it is formatted correctly.
