Call for Tutorials

The Eurographics 2018 Tutorials Committee invites you to propose tutorials teaching the technical background of a given subject, or demonstrating its potential creative applications. Tutorials are intended to show what can be done, but even more importantly, how this is done and what kind of tools can be used to do it. In a proposal for a tutorial you should consider that tutorial attendees come from diverse backgrounds, ranging from research and development to education and application.

 

We are soliciting half-day and full-day tutorial proposals at the beginning, intermediate, or advanced level in all areas pertinent to Computer Graphics. Half-day tutorials are about three hours, plus a coffee break in the middle. Full-day tutorials are twice that long, plus two coffee breaks and a longer lunch break. Full-day tutorials should be motivated by sufficient scientific material. Tutorial proposals are about 4-5 pages in length, clearly indicating the audience that is addressed as well as the syllabus of instruction. They will be reviewed by the tutorial chairs, supported by external reviewers. The final selection will be based on quality of the submission, qualification of the presenters, relevance to the conference topics, and balance of topics.

 

Accepted tutorials will be distributed on the conference's USB stick and also will be included in the Eurographics digital library. Eurographics does not require a copyright for the tutorial notes it publishes. The tutorial speakers may reuse their material freely. For each accepted tutorial, a free registration is provided for one author/presenter of that tutorial.

 

For any questions concerning tutorial submissions please contact the tutorial co-chairs:  chairs-eg2018tut@eg.org

Course Notes

Sample course notes, although not required in the submission, are highly encouraged to accompany the tutorial proposals. Notes may include original text, formatted according to the Eurographics publication guidelines, reprints of earlier papers (subject to copyright approval), slides, videos, software, datasets, and any other material the authors consider useful. The acceptance of tutorial proposals is contingent upon the final submission of complete course notes. Upon acceptance of the tutorial, additional material should be submitted using the same link in the SRM system as for submitting the proposal. 

 

All course notes of accepted tutorials will be distributed to conference participants online and on USB Sticks.
