Guidelines for Presenters

All sessions will take place in the John Hand Library, which facilitates both HDMI and VGA laptop connectors. We will provide a laptop (Apple Macbook with powerpoint and keynote), but you are also free to bring your own laptop also. Apple mac connectors will be available, but we suggest that you bring your own to be sure.

CBMI2019 will include three different types of conference session:

  • Best Paper session will allow for 25 minute presentations followed by 5 minutes of questions.
  • Regular sessions (including the Medical Image Mining and Health special sessions) will facilitate 16 minute presentations with 4 minutes of questions.
  • Signals in Multimedia special session will include 7 minute talks followed by a panel discussion.

For the poster/demo session, we will provide posterboards that can take A0 portrait or landscape sized posters. Each demo will be provided with a desk and posterboard (A0 portrait). Given the oldness of the building, we will endeavour to provide power to every demo, but we can not guarantee it. We recommend that you bring your laptop fully charged.

Open wifi will be provided for all delegates. Additionally, the John Hand Library will provide charging points for mobile devices (with common sized cables) and a number of working desks with power at the back of the room.

Coffee/refreshments and lunch will be provided daily to all attendees. The welcome reception will provide some drinks and finger food, but we expect that delegates will go for a meal independently afterwards. Additionally, all registered attendees can attend the banquet in Clontarf Castle. If any attendee has special dietary requirements, please let the organisers know in advance.

With an awareness for environmental concerns, the conference pack will include limited printed material, such as a one-page conference schedule, writing materials, a map of Dublin and a USB key for the IEEE conference proceedings. We took the decision to not include extras such as a conference bag, so as to reduce costs and waste.

A bus will bring delegates to Clontarf Castle for the banquet. Should delegates wish, walking instructions will be available from the registration desk. Walking will take 45-60 minutes. Finally, the registration desk will have conference organisers available at all times during the conference, with the facility to print boarding passes, etc.

Camera Ready Instructions

Please submit your camera-ready paper before the 16th July 2019. The paper (PDF and zipped source) should be uploaded to the CBMI 2019 conftool submission system before this date. The appropriate copyright clearance code notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding. A full set of IEEE conference templates are provided by IEEE, including details for overleaf. Please add one of the following four copyright notices for a CBMI2019 publication, whichever one is appropriate:

  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-4673-7/19/$31.00 ©2019 Crown
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-4673-7/19/$31.00 ©2019 European Union
  • For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-4673-7/19/$31.00 ©2019 IEEE

Tips for adding the IEEE copyright notice to your pdf:

  • Use an official IEEE template when preparing your final camera-ready paper copy
  • If you are preparing your paper in LaTeX and you are using the IEEEtran document class, this may help:
    Add the following code before the \maketitle command:
    \IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth]{978-1-7281-4673-7/19/\$31.00~\copyright2019 IEEE \hfill} \hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}
    Add the following code after the \maketitle command:
  • If you are using MS Word, please use the appropriate IEEE template
  • Otherwise, you can first prepare your pdf, and then add the IEEE copyright notice separately using a pdf editing program. The copyright notice should appear about 1 cm below the left column, and should be aligned to the left with the same left margin as the column. You can then re-print the document in pdf format and then validate it using IEEE PDF eXpress.

Once the paper is ready to upload the final version, you should use IEEE PDF eXpress to validate your paper. IEEE PDF eXpress is a service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function). IEEE PDF eXpress will be available to CBMI2019 authors from 1 July to 15 July inclusive. Please log onto to validate your paper. First-time users should do the following:
Select the New Users - Click Here link. Enter the following:

  • 47048X for the Conference ID
  • your email address
  • a password

Continue to enter information as prompted. An Online confirmation will be displayed and an email confirmation will be sent verifying your account setup. Previous users of PDF eXpress need to follow the above steps, but should enter the same password that was used for previous conferences. Verify that your contact information is valid. You will then be able to upload your PDF file (and paper title) to the validation system, which will email you a validaiton confirmation.

Following this process, please submit your camera-ready paper before the 16th July 2019 to CBMI 2019 conftool submission system, where you can also register for the conference.

As a last task, before publishing the papers on IEEE Xplore, the correspoding author will be contacted by email by IEEE to digitally sign the IEEE copyright form. This email will include a personalised link to follow. Answer the questions and confirm. Papers will be made available on IEEE Xplore after the CBMI 2019 conference has ended. If you have problems answering the questions, please see the IEEE FAQ for electronic copyright forms.

Social Events

CBMI 2019 will host two main social events. The welcome reception on 4th September 2019 and the conference banquet on 5th September 2019.

The Welcome Reception will take place at the All Hallows College (conference venue) on the evening of the first day of CBMI. Refreshments will be provided. The welcome reception will be co-timed with the posters and demo sessions.

The CBMI 2019 banquet will take place at Clontarf Castle, which is close to the conference venue on the north side of Dublin City. Clontarf Castle was built on the site of the famous Battle of Clontarf in 1014, which saw Irish and Norse kings and warlords doing battle on a day that resulted in the loss of up to 10,000 lives. The battle was an important event in Irish history and is recorded in both Irish and Norse chronicles. In Ireland, the battle came to be seen as an event that freed the Irish from foreign domination. Clontarf castle has existed since 1172 and the current building dates to 1837. Handel was a frequent visitor to the then castle during his stay in Dublin for the premiere of Messiah in 1742. More recently the castle is referred to by Phil Lynott of the Irish rock group Thin Lizzy in his song "The Friendly Ranger at Clontarf Castle", the opening track on their 1971 debut album Thin Lizzy. In 2014 Clontarf Castle Hotel was awarded the 2014 Best Hotel Event Venue award at the 2014 Event Industry Awards.

Local Information for Attendees

About Dublin

Dublin is one of the top city break destinations in Europe and for atmosphere, nightlife, visitor attractions, activities and shopping, Dublin has very few rivals. Steeped in history and buzzing with youthful energy, the Irish capital is at the very heart of Irish culture and industry.


Dublin's climate is mild and very changeable. It is influenced by the Gulf Stream. Winter temperatures average 4°C-7°C (39°-44°F) and in summer between 16°C-20°C (60°F-67°F). There are about eighteen hours of daylight daily during July and August, only getting truly dark after 23.00. In September, one can expect an average temperature of about 15°C, with a 1/3 chance of rain on each day, so we plan to include one disposable raincoat in your delegate pack.


The population of Dublin City and County is almost 1.4 million. English is the spoken language throughout Ireland. Irish (or Gaelic) is the original native language of Ireland. Place names and signage are usually in both languages.


Dublin Tourism Information and Reservation Centres can be found at Dublin Airport, Dún Laoghaire Ferry Port, Suffolk Street and O'Connell Street. Call into one of their offices and let the experts guide you around Dublin.

Power & Internet

Ireland uses the same plugs as the UK and the standard electricity supply in Ireland is 230 volt AC (frequency 50Hz). WiFi is ubiquitous and most restaurants, cafes, venues and public transport (except taxis) provide WiFi. Uber does NOT work in Ireland, due to regulations; the alternative is MyTaxi.

Getting to Dublin

Most attendees will fly to Dublin, although there are other options such as ferries from the UK or France. Dublin Airport is one of the busiest in Europe, with hundreds of daily flights providing a huge range of options to get here. Direct flights are available from most major cities in the UK and continental Europe, several hubs in North America, and the Gulf cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Connecting hubs hook up with further flights from all over the world, providing for easy access to the Irish capital.

Dublin Airport has two terminals. Terminal 1 is the arrival and departure point for airlines including Ryanair, Air France,, Germanwings, Iberia, Lufthansa, Norwegian and SAS. Terminal 2 is the hub for Emirates, Etihad and transatlantic flights by American Airlines, US Airways, U nited Airlines, Delta, Air Canada and Aer Lingus (Ireland's national airline, whose UK and continental flights are also based in T2). Dublin Airport is 10km from the city centre and about 7km from DCU All Hallows Campus. A taxi from the airport to DCU will cost between €12-15, and note that Dublin Taxi Drivers are notoriously grumpy about taking short journeys, so please ignore the inevitable grumbles. There are also numerous busses that take passengers directly to the city centre.
