Please submit your paper for ODRSS at:


A complete paper should be submitted in according to the formatting style (below), which is identical to that of the main conference. The length of papers submitted for review should not exceed 9 pages excluding the references.

Papers submitted for review should be anonymous and instead include the paper ID as allocated upon registration of the paper. The addition of line numbers (automatic in the LaTeX template) should be included, in order to facilitate the review process.

Typesetting should preferably be done using the PDFLaTeX system (part of all modern LaTeX distributions). However, submissions prepared in Microsoft Word or OpenOffice will be accepted.

Paper templates, along with example PDF outputs are available for download through GitHub:

Instructions on how to use the BMVC LaTeX template are described in the file within the repository. To enable review mode in the LaTeX template, the \bmvcreviewcopy{??} command should be used, where ?? is your assigned paper number.


By submitting a manuscript to BMVC, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either is under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the review period to any of the following: another conference, a workshop, or a journal.


At least one appropriate registration of an author is required per accepted paper. This may be either a BMVC main conference registration (of any type) which covers all days, or a single day BMVC registration for the day of the workshop.

For each accepted paper authors should upload the final camera-ready paper (in PDF format).

The name of your submission file must be of the form XXXX.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.pdf.

You are permitted one extra page in the camera ready copy to take into account the reviewer’s comments. This means the length of the camera ready copy should not exceed 10 pages excluding the references.


No supplementary material should be submitted.
