The MADiMa 2017 workshop follows the guidlines of the ICIAP 2017 conference. Following you may find information about the submission procedure and details on how to format your manuscript.

Accepted papers will be included in the ICIAP 2017 Conference Proceedings, which will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). Every accepted paper requires that at least one author is registered with workshop registration fee and attending the conference.

The best paper presented in the workshop will be recommended for fast-track review in the Computer Vision and Image Understanding journal. More details will follow.

The conference will be held in Catania, Italy on 11-15 September, 2017.

Manuscript Submission

The submission website is now open:  Manuscript submission

The maximum number of pages is 8. Papers will be selected by a review process.

Authors of MADiMa 2017 papers can find complete instructions of how to format their MADiMa 2017 papers in the following documents:

Additional information can be found in “Springer LNCS – Information for Authors of Computer Science Publications“.

Demo Submission

The MADiMa 2017 organizes a demonstration track – an interactive way to present applications and prototypes. In addition to the papers presenting the latest theoretical advances, MADiMa 2017 is seeking for real-world demonstrations of novel portable solutions for dietary assessment/management, using:

  • Computer vision
  • Augmented reality
  • Wearable sensors
  • Computerized food composition/recipe analysis
  • or other technologies relevant to the workshop’s themes

We encourage demonstrations of working systems from early prototypes to mature product-oriented solutions originating from both industry and academia.

To participate in the demo track you are expected to submit an abstract demo proposal (up to one page)  by sending an email at demo (at) madima (dot) org. The abstract should describe clearly:

  • the technology demonstrated
  • the research background and context
  • the aspects of novelty

One image should be included in the abstract while short videos may also be linked. The abstracts will be made public on the website after acceptance, with the authors’ consent.

The facilities provided by the organizers for the demos include tables, poster boards, power outlets and wireless (shared) Internet connection. Demo presenters are expected to bring themselves everything else needed for their demo, such as laptops, sensors, power adapters etc.
