Please follow the preparation and submission instructions for your CinC paper, and please review the Challenge-specific checklist before submitting your CinC paper.

We have prepared templates to help you prepare your CinC papers. Please use the LaTeX template (Overleaf or download) or the Word template. These templates include important instructions, advice, and references.

Please read these instructions and read one of the templates. Each year, we need to provide feedback for many teams that miss some of the paper requirements, and each year, some papers are unfortunately rejected because the teams were unable to address important issues.

Conference Papers

The conference papers for Computing in Cardiology 2022 will be available on the CinC and IEEE websites.

Supported by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) under NIH grant R01EB030362.
