SUBMISSIONS

Author FAQ

Q: The decision for my Round 1 submission was “Revise and Resubmit”. How do I submit the revised version and what are the deadlines?

A: For revisions, you must include a 1-page response to the reviews that summarizes how you addressed the reviewer concerns. Prepend this response document to your revised paper and submit it as a single PDF using the “Upload Revision” link (as shown in the figure). You also have the option to update your supplementary material. The deadlines are the same as Round 2.

Q: Where do I get the Author Toolkit?

A: You can find the Author Toolkit (latex only) on Overleaf or download it as a ZIP archive.

Q: How do I get a Paper ID?

A: When you create a new submission in CMT, you will be assigned a Paper ID. There is a field for this paper ID in the header of the Latex template. 

Q:  Is there an abstract or registration deadline?

A: We don’t have an abstract or registration deadline for WACV 2025.

Q:  Will the deadline be extended?

A: No. Unless there are extraordinary and unusual circumstances, you should expect the posted deadlines to be firm.

Q:  What is the difference between a submission to the algorithms track compared to the applications track?

A: Applications papers will be evaluated on systems-level innovation, novelty of the domain and comparative assessment. Algorithms papers will be evaluated according to the standard computer vision conference criteria, including algorithmic novelty and quantified evaluation against current, alternative approaches.

Q:  Can I submit a paper to both the applications and algorithms tracks?

A: No. Authors must choose only one primary track. If you believe your paper fits both tracks, you should choose the track where your paper makes the stronger contribution. 

Q:  Is there a page limit for the supplementary material?

A: There is no limit on the number of pages in the supplementary material. Text (additional formulas, proofs, results) should be in PDF and follow the same style as the main paper. Anything else (images, video, code) should be submitted as a ZIP archive. The total file size cannot exceed 100MB. Also be sure to maintain anonymity in the supplemental material. Violations may result in desk rejection.

Q:  Is the review process blind?

A: Yes, the review process is double-blind. Submissions (main paper and supplemental material) should not include author information. Pay particular attention to links (e.g., Github) which may not preserve author identity. 

Q:  How can I share code anonymously for a double-blind submission?

A: Anonymized code can be submitted as part of a ZIP file. Additionally, there are projects like anonymous_github designed to solve this particular problem.

Q:  Is there a size limit (MB) for the paper?

A: Yes, the main paper is restricted to 20MB. 

Q:  Is there a limit on the number of words for the abstract?

A: No, not really. However, we encourage you to keep your abstract brief (no longer than ½ column in WACV format).

Q:  Are acknowledgements OK? 

A: No. Leave them for the final copy. 

Q:  How do I cite my results reported in open challenges? 

A: To conform with the double blind review policy, you can report results of other challenge participants together with your results in your paper. For your results, however, you should not identify yourself and should not mention your participation in the challenge. Instead present your results referring to the method proposed in your paper and draw conclusions based on the experimental comparison to other results.

Q:  I didn’t find my question. What should I do?
