    2nd Call for Short Papers

EUROGRAPHICS'2021 in Vienna, Austria, May 3-7, 2021,  <>  --->  enjoy Vienna !

Authors are invited to submit short papers [4 pages max] that present 
self-contained, complete, compact works on all areas related to computer 
graphics, such as rendering, modeling, visualization, animation, 
simulation, virtual reality, computer vision, computer-aided design, 
digital fabrication and imaging. We particularly invite submissions 
which present tangible and practically useful improvements to the state 
of the art, but which are not thematically wide enough to justify an 
entire full paper. What we would like to see as short papers are 
individual smart ideas and intriguing findings that might otherwise 
remain unpublished, due to them standing in isolation – as opposed to 
falling within the context of some larger scientific endeavour, where 
they can be easily mentioned in the corresponding publication.

Accepted short papers will be published in the Short Papers digital 
media proceedings and in the Eurographics Digital Library. Authors of 
accepted papers will be expected to present their work as an oral 
presentation at the conference.


December 21, 2020 	Submission deadline
February 15, 2021 	Notification
March 21, 2021 	Camera-ready
April 12, 2021 	Fast-Forward video deadline

* All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC

        Submission details

Submissions will be made electronically through the Eurographics 
_Submission and Review Management (SRM) system_ 
<>. Submitted papers must 
be anonymous, up to 4 pages in length, and formatted according to the 
Eurographics Author’s guidelines (short papers LaTeX style package 
available from the SRM 
<> system).

Authors of accepted papers will present a super short summary or a 
teaser during a fast-forward session. This presentation will be around 
25 seconds (exact length to be decided) and shall be augmented by 
slides. To ensure a smooth organization, they will be asked to prepare a 
short video of the slides for this purpose, in two versions: one with 
the spoken text and one without. These FF presentations will be 
available on the web throughout the conference. Details will be sent to 
accepted paper authors.


A submission to the Eurographics Short 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, and other posts on the World 
Wide Web. Failure to comply with this requirement will be considered 
plagiarism and result in rejection.

        Prior Art

Authors are expected to cite, discuss differences and novelty, and 
compare results, if applicable, with respect to relevant existing 
publications, provided they have been published in a peer-reviewed venue.

This also applies to patents, which also undergo a professional 
reviewing process. But what about technical reports, and other 
non-peer-reviewed publications, such as technical reports or papers 
posted on arXiv, which we henceforth refer to as pre-publications? With 
the rapid progress of search engines and the increased perusal of arXiv 
papers by the scientific community, asking authors to thoroughly compare 
their work to these pre-publications imposes an unreasonable burden — a 
seemingly relevant report that is incomplete in its disclosure or 
validation might appear online shortly before the deadline. Although 
peer-reviewed publications are certainly not immune to these 
shortcomings, they have, at least, been judged sufficiently complete and 
valid by a group of peers. Consequently, authors are not required to 
discuss and compare their work with recent pre-publications (arXiv, 
technical reports, theses, etc.), although they must properly cite those 
that inspired them (see “Plagiarism” above). Nevertheless, we encourage 
authors to mention all related works they are aware of as good academic 
practice dictates. Note that with new works posted on arXiv on a daily 
basis, it is increasingly likely that reviewers might point out 
similarities between the submitted work and online reports that have 
been missed by the authors. In this case, authors of conditionally 
accepted papers should be prepared to cite these pre-publications in 
their final revision as concurrent work, without the burden of having to 
detail how their work compares to or differs from these pre-publications.

        Double Submission Policy

By submitting a manuscript to the Eurographics Short Papers program, 
authors acknowledge that the technical contributions they claim have not 
been previously published or accepted for publication in another 
peer-reviewed venue, and that no manuscript substantially similar in 
content is currently under review. Violations constitute grounds for
