Call for Full Papers

The Eurographics 2018 Full Papers Program will showcase innovative research in Computer Graphics and related areas. We invite submissions of new ideas, and encourage all forms of research creativity and originality. We are interested in practice, experience, novel applications, technological or theoretical papers, with the ambition of setting the standard in the field and stimulating future trends.

 

Accepted full papers will be presented at Eurographics 2018 and published in a special issue of the Eurographics journal Computer Graphics Forum; the submissions will undergo a two-step review process. We encourage submissions from all areas related to computer graphics, including but not limited to rendering, modeling, animation, simulation, visualization, virtual and augmented reality, display technology, image processing, computational imaging, computational fabrication, human-computer interaction, and related disciplines.

Submission dates

A preliminary abstract is due by 23:59 UTC, Tuesday, October 3, 2017, and the full paper deadline is 23:59 UTC, Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Note that a full paper can only be submitted if an abstract has been submitted by the abstract deadline.

Submission details

Electronic submission of all papers is mandatory and will be conducted using the Submission and Review Management (SRMv2) system. Papers must be written in English, must be anonymized, and must be formatted according to the Eurographics Computer Graphics Forum guidelines. The publication guidelines and LaTeX templates are available on SRMv2. Accepted papers must be presented orally in English at Eurographics 2018. Review of full papers is based on a double-blind reviewing approach, so please be sure to remove all personal data (such as authors, affiliations, etc.) from your submission. References to your own work should be made in the third person to maintain anonymity. Reviewers are asked to keep confidential all materials sent to them for evaluation.

 

Note that there is no maximum length imposed on papers. However, papers should only be as long as they need to be, but not longer. Reviewers might rank submissions perceived as being either repetitive or unnecessarily long lower than they would score concisely written papers.

Plagiarism and Prior Art

A submission to the Eurographics Full Papers program should describe an original work of the authors. Authors must not use ideas or content originating from others without properly crediting their original sources. Note that such sources are not limited to peer-reviewed publications, but also include patents, textbooks, technical reports, theses, unpublished work posted on arXiv, as well as other posts on the World Wide Web. Failure to comply with this requirement will be considered plagiarism and result in rejection.

 

Authors are not required to discuss and compare their work with non-peer reviewed (pre-publication) works (arXiv, technical reports, theses, etc.), although they must properly cite those that inspired them and are encouraged to mention all related works they are aware of. Authors of conditionally accepted papers should be prepared to cite pre-publications listed by reviewers in their final revision as concurrent work, but are not required to detail how their work compares to or differs from these pre-publications.

Re-submitted material

For papers that have previously been reviewed by other venues and have been rejected or withdrawn, the authors are encouraged to provide a cover letter to describe the history of the paper (however, this does not imply reviewer continuity). This cover letter can also answer the comments made in the previous reviews, by either listing the changes that were made to comply with them, or discussing/rebutting/clarifying some elements if need be. Though not mandatory, this procedure is strongly encouraged. The cover letter has to be submitted through SRM as an ‘Additional Attachment’ (see last section of the SRM upload form for details).

Rebuttal, Notification, Publication, and Prizes

  • The reviews will be made available to the authors on November 24, 2017. During a rebuttal period from November 24 to November 30, 2017, authors will be able to submit a brief document to address any factual errors or clarify any issues raised by reviews.
  • The date for notification of the results of the first round of the review process is December 15, 2017.
  • Revised versions of papers conditionally accepted in the first round must be submitted by January 10, 2018.
  • The final notification of the outcome of the second reviewing round will be made on January 26, 2018.
  • The camera-ready version of accepted papers will be due on February 7, 2018.
  • From all accepted and presented papers, an international jury will select the best papers. The best paper will receive the Günter Enderle Award, including a cash prize of €1,000, presented at Eurographics 2018.
