conferences.eg.org/eg2021 <http://conferences.eg.org/eg2021> ---> enjoy
The Eurographics Doctoral Consortium is a networking event that provides
PhD students, working in all areas of computer graphics, with an
excellent opportunity to present their work and interact with
distinguished and experienced researchers in the field, receiving
feedback and mentoring, as well as a different perspective from senior
researchers outside their home institution. In addition, the Doctoral
Consortium provides a unique forum for PhD students to share their work
and experience among their fellow PhD students. The Doctoral Consortium
will take place within the Eurographics’2021 conference, to be held in
Vienna, May 3-7, 2021.
Who should apply?
PhD students working in all areas of computer graphics are encouraged to
apply. We particularly encourage applications from students who are in
the first half of their PhD work, especially those who already have a
clear research direction (possibly with some published results), as they
have sufficient time ahead to profit from their participation in the
Doctoral Consortium. Students who are close to finishing their doctorate
degree, or have very recently finished it, are also welcome, to share
their experience and to discuss their ongoing research and future
The applicants are strongly encouraged to consider submitting a poster
of their work to the poster track in parallel.

* research objectives/questions;
* background and related work that informs the author’s research;
* research approach, methodology and proposed experiments (where
* dissertation status and a description of the remaining work;
* current and expected contributions.
The research statement should transcend the scope of a single
publication or project, and instead focus on the general research theme
or agenda for the student’s PhD thesis.
2. *Supervisor’s letter of support:* A one-page signed letter from the
PhD student’s supervisor, supporting her/his participation in the
Doctoral Consortium, and providing the following information:
* the student’s status with respect to the institution’s PhD requirements;
* the expected date of thesis/dissertation defense or graduation;
* why attendance at this Doctoral Consortium would be particularly
beneficial to the student;
* what contributions the student is likely to make to the event if
invited to attend.
3. *Curriculum vitae:* A 1-2 pages CV plus the list of all publications.
All three documents must be written in English.
The review process is single-blinded. The review and decision of
acceptance will take into account: (1) Quality of the submission
(potential contribution and impact of the research to the field of
computer graphics) and the author’s stage of doctoral research; (2) the
benefits of the consortium for the author’s PhD research; (3) the
author’s contribution to the diversity of topics, backgrounds and
profiles that will integrate the Consortium.
All authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend the Doctoral
Consortium, where they will present their work to a panel of experts,
selected by the Doctoral Consortium co-chairs to match at best the
topics related to the accepted submissions.
For this, the authors will prepare a 10 minute long pre-recorded video
to present their work. The panelists will then interact with the
presenter to discuss their approach and provide constructive advice and
suggestions. Social events will be conducted to engage panelists and all
presenters to initialize a friendly environment in the community.
